Reader Beware: This is a Heteronormative Blog !!

The latest newspeak to come from the radical gay movement: "heteronormative" ! Their concepts are so absurd ... new words must be invented. Now we dare not speak about our own NORMAL heterosexual lives: marriage to a member of the opposite sex, naturally procreated children, etc. It might offend.

Just keep your mouth shut and let them run everything! Only they may speak and share their stories. Who would be interested in anything else these days???

First we see the report in the Boston Herald (3/3/05) on actress Jada Pinkett Smith's remarks at a Harvard event, which were highly offensive to Harvard's Bisexual/Gay/blahblahblah group:

"While neither group specified what Pinkett Smith said that was so offensive, a previous edition of the Crimson included a quote from the actress from the event at Sanders Theater.
'Women, you can have it all - a loving man, devoted husband, loving children, a fabulous career,' she said. 'They say you gotta choose. Nah, nah, nah. We are a new generation of women. We got to set a new standard of rules around here. You can do whatever it is you want. All you have to do is want it.' "

Also discussed by James Taranto in his Best of the Web Today (Wall Street Journal, 3/3/05):

"Calling the comments heteronormative, according to [BGLTSA Co-Chair] Woods means they implied that standard sexual relationships are only between males and females."

And in the Harvard Crimson (3/2/05):

"After some students were offended by Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments at Saturday’s Cultural Rhythms show, the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations have begun working together to increase sensitivity toward issues of sexuality at Harvard.
"Students said that some of Pinkett Smith’s remarks concerning appropriate gender roles were specific to heterosexual relationships.
"In a press release circulated yesterday by the BGLTSA—and developed in coordination with the Foundation—the BGLTSA called for an apology from the Foundation and encouraged future discussion of the issue."
