The Articulation of Bias: Hoof in Mouth Disease.
Penelope, Julia
Heterosexism, as defined in this paper, designates those central social structures that advocate heterosexuality as the only natural sexual interest. The cluster of social mores that constitute heterosexist attitudes is defined and described, with illustrations from various contexts showing both the subtle and the overt ways in which these attitudes are conveyed. The selections are intended to show what the doublespeak of heterosexism sounds like in a varied assortment of contexts. These illustrations indicate the scope of the problem and the ways in which it appears in the kinds of literature that most people read. A list of sample quotations from six books is attached. (RL)
