De-Normalizing Heteros: Why I Don’t Use the Word “Straight” - BGD

In all of my learning (and unlearning), a lot of things that I once held as “normal” due to societal influence now make less sense. One of those things being our collective use of the word “straight.” What’s with that term and why is its usage so common? “Straight” is something that I’ve really taken notice of and have been interrogating internally over the last few months.

We also know that the “nuclear” family structure is colonial bullshit.

Therefore, I’ll be sticking with “Heterosexual”…or “hetero” and “cishet,” since those both make the bigots seethe, and I’m all about that.
