I'm starting to understand what TIH meant with the love between a man and a woman. Irvine, you're awesome.

I have been doing an ongoing study of what 'normal' sexuality is for years, actually decades.

The best way to define 'normal' is: conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal;

For my sexuality study I decided the best method would be to view 'pornography', the availability and prevalence of hetero vs homo pornography.

After thousands of hours of research, I can safely say heterosexual pornography is the more common type, therefore normal and homosexual pornography is therefore 'abnormal'.

But just to be certain I am still conducting this study, I will report back should the findings change.

What concerns me is the extraordinary amount of rape, violence, and abuse heterosexual women undergo at the hands of their heterosexual male partners.
And how do these kinds of heterosexual relationships affect the children? Because, as we all know, it's all about the children.

This thread has defied the odds and actually become somewhat worthwhile.

Thankfully, I am childless, so I will not infect the innocent children with my heteroness.

I laughed so fucking hard at that first post. I mean, I get that we need to lay off Iron Horse, but it was totally involuntary. Typos absolutely obliterate comedy.

Heterosexuality, misogyny, abuse...pretty sure this is the Sean Connery thread.

But ... But ... Why are you here if not to reproduce? Are you in fact insisting your life has value and meaning beyond your babymaking abilities?

What will I tell the children?

Well, to put it crudely, it means that the only thing that's right is a man fucking a woman or a man marrying a woman. Everything outside of that is wrong.

I'm sure you'll think up something suitable.

Until then shield their innocent eyes!

How dare you ask such a provoking question?

I'm pretty sure if censorship was more lax in the The 60's we could have had way more explicite, and nastier lyrics from white rockers, as well.

Even without being graphic The Stones "Under My Thumb" is nasty and hypocritical.

Great link/article- jeevey.
I bookmarked the site for furture and archivel reading. thanks!

Studies were done some years back showing that tears from being upset (sad, angry, confused etc) were different from tears released by cutting up onions.

There were biological by-products probably produced from being over-stressed, and gotten rid of by being washed out of the body.
I'm sure it's one reason (among a few) a lot of men's lifespans are shorter than women's.

Yes, but it's more about the assumption that everyone is straight-- for example the way the all the love songs are written from a het point of view, the assumptions that kids will get their first crush on and go to prom with the opposite sex, the way tv humor scripts presume the heterosexuality of the audience, the way 'lesbian porn' is created for heterosexual men, not actual lesbians-- all the millions of cultural ways we express the expectation that heterosexuality is the 'normal' and homosexuality is the exception. It has more to do with broad cultural attitudes with personal beliefs about morality. It gets perpetuated unconsciously. Heteronormativity is often expressed by people who don't actually think gayness is wrong. It's just the assumption that people are straight until you are specifically notified otherwise.

Eh... it's not a noun in that way, and it's not personal in that way. Assuming that everyone is straight until they tell you otherwise is an expression of heteronormativity, which is a much broader concept than a single person or act. It's the cultural assumption that straightness is the norm and homosexuality is a deviation.

This sort of goes back to that discussion of cisgender. The whole point of putting that stuff into the lexicon was to avoid it simply male/female vs. trans male/trans female. Because there's a natural implication to that situation that male/female is normal and trans male/trans female is not normal. That's heteronormativity. It's, in theory, one less way of pointing at trans people and saying, "Hey, look how different you are!"
