Comments About Heterosexuality
"People do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheeps and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white."
"The dynamic of how women and men are meant to interact, for those of us who are looking for a heterosexual relationship, is very broken, and it leads to a lot of really dysfunctional relationships, abusive and otherwise."
-Whitney Wolfe Herd
"If there is a substantial difference between a gay couple and a childless heterosexual couple, I'm unable to see it."
-Daniel Keys Moran
"There is no conscious choice of heterosexual identity any more than there is a homosexual one. The last person in the world who wants to be homosexual, for the most part, are homosexuals."
-Michael Eric Dyson
"It seems to me the most important issue in the LGBTQ community is the right to be queer, the right to be free of the heterosexual assumption."
"I'm as heterosexual as any person need be. I'm open about my relationships (or lack thereof ) in my own life, because I want to make the case that gay isn't contagious. It's not something that you can catch or learn or choose."
"People say, When did you decide you were gay? and you think, When did you decide you were heterosexual? It's not a decision. It's something you gradually begin to realize about yourself."
"The widely held belief that the heterosexual nuclear family is best for children has long been used as a smoke screen for homophobia and as a talking point to quash marriage-equality efforts."
"I'm really not an avowed heterosexual. I'm no more proud of it than of being white or tall."
"The state and the church seldom approve of anything I do. I don't need their approval. I don't aspire to the heterosexual nuclear family model."
Cisnormativity is Rampant
What If Straight People Had to
Normativity in Our Society
Conventional sex, or vanilla sex, is sexual behavior that is within the range of normality for a culture or subculture, and typically involves sex which does not include elements of BDSM, kink, or fetish activities. It is plain, everyday, and average. When looking at conventional (or standard) sex with disdain, it may be described as boring, routine, unadventurous or dull.
Typically, we think of the missionary position as the most conventional or basic sexual position. For a straight couple, is no more than the male-superior position; that is, the man on top, the woman on the bottom. Otherwise, more generally defined, it is two people lying down, face to face, one person on top of the other person. It is pretty much unique to humans, and therefore differentiates us from animals. It puts partners face-to-face during sex. With this position, you can remain under the covers and still enjoy intercourse.
