Heterosexual or Homosexual? Reconsidering Binary Narratives on Sexual Identities in Urban Schools.
Leck, Glorianne M.
Education and Urban Society, v32 n3 p324-48 May 2000
Discusses how the binary categories of heterosexual and homosexual limit thinking about sexual orientation and how that epistemological framework affects decisions made in society and school that lead to discrimination. Focuses on human sexual preferences, meanings of sexual socialization, diversity and context (schooling), understanding labels, social/sexual contexts, heterosexual language as privileged, sexism, urban contexts, and adolescence.
