Is today. My entry will be belated, because I’m so tired I was crying on the bus. I haven’t had time yet to commit sodomy in drag and blog about it. But I read some of the (many, many, many) entries linked over at blackademic, and noticed this comment in the thread:
So I’m curious does it make you evil if you are heterosexual and married? I don’t believe in “normal” myself but you seem to have a hate on for it. You do realize not everyone who is “heteronormal” hates you right?
Not to be hateful or anything, but would you please go fuck yourself?
Nubian defined homonormativity in her precis post. It is not the individual condition of being heterosexual. It is the general condition of enforced heterosexuality, favored heterosexuality, heterosexuality as a necessary qualification for being fully human. That is heteronormativity: when heterosexuals such as yourself are normal, and everyone else is not. There’s [plain old] marriage and gay marriage, to pick just one example from so many.
And when you mistake resistance to that status quo by the people it hurts for something that threatens your orientation and your life, you demonstrate the privilege that comes with being heterosexual in a heteronormative culture. I don’t hate you for being straight, but I gotta say I’m not terribly fond of your ignorance.
