    Arguably, then, the focus should be on revealing the ways in which this hierarchical binary structure operates, and the other hierarchies of power and knowledge involved in this.

    BINARIES ACQUIRE THEIR HIERARCHICAL STRUCTURE THROUGH THEIR INTERDEPENDENCE WITH SUPPORTING BINARY OPPOSITIONS: MALE/FEMALE WITH STRONG/WEAK, ACTIVE/PASSIVE, RATIONAL/EMOTIONAL AS SUCH, ONE SIDE OF THE BINARY COMES TO BE SEEN AS INFERIOR.

    supplement is the term that seems to be an addition to the “original” term but on which the “original” actually depends. For example, madness, emotionality, and homosexuality are all supplements: you can’t have the concept of sanity without madness, rationality without emotionality, or heterosexuality without homosexuality.

    Heteronormativity refers to a set of related cultural assumptions:

    • The “normal” or “natural” form of attraction and relationships is one man and one woman who:

    - Normally or naturally embody conventional gender roles and norms; and

    - Have sex whereby the man’s penis penetrates the woman’s vagina (PIV sex).

    OH, BRAD!

    OH, JANET!

    • Other forms of sexuality and gender are less normal or natural than this (or not normal or natural at all).
