We describe models in which dark matter is xenophobic, with significantly reduced signal strength in direct detection experiments using xenon as a target material. Such models alleviate tension between xenon-based constraints and possible signal at other direct detection experiments, and in particular regions of interest at CoGeNT and CDMS are largely below XENON100 bounds in the purely xenophobic limit. We also show the constraints from upcoming LUX results and orthogonal searches using Fermi-LAT results from line searches in dwarf spheroidals and monojet searches at CMS.
