sexual system

The acknowledgment that concepts of gender, sexuality, and performativity are generally different to per specific regions and/or cultures. It is important to note, especially historically, given that the dominant sexual system as it is now throughout the the United State (and worldwide) was not always as it was.

  • a great example of this are the myriad of sexual systems prevalent throughout the many Native American tribes that thrived pre-colonization. A good deal of these systems were destroyed (literally) and replaced with more Euro-centric sexual and social systems. (Margolin, The Ohlone Way)
