Rankism

Rankism is "abusive, discriminatory, and/or exploitative behavior towards people because of their rank in a particular hierarchy".[1] Rank-based abuse underlies many other phenomena such as bullying, racism, hazing, ageism, sexism, ableism, mentalism, anti-semitism, homophobia and transphobia. The term "rankism" was popularized by physicist, educator, and citizen diplomat Robert W. Fuller.
