homonormativity

Seen as the assimilation of homosexual (and overall Queer) culture into heteronormative standards and ideals. For example:

  • masculine/feminine binary in Queer relationships
    • butch/femme, top/bottom
  • marriage as the ultimate barrier to equality

Also, it can be seen as the privilege of homosexuality (particularly white, male homosexuality) over other Queer identities. (Stryker)
