Abstract

In a patriarchal, machist and heterocentrist system, through a process of stigmatisation, myths (traditional narratives containing behavioural patterns and altered realities) and stereotypes (false conceptions of simplified mental images) are used to devalue people whose sexual orientation breaks from traditionally established models. Taking into account the students of social work in Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), it is proposed that research be carried out using a mixed method, with the aim of analysing the level of aversion towards bisexuality and the extent of existing myths about bisexuality. The results show a positive level of attitudes towards bisexuality, as well as an imaginary based on the principle of equality and a level of internalisation of different myths about medium-low bisexuality. On the other hand, it is noted that attitudes and myths are directly linked.
