Heteronormativity includes the multiple, often mundane ways through which heterosexuality overwhelmingly structures and “pervasively and insidiously” orders “everyday existence” (Jackson; Kitzinger). Heteronormativity structures social life so that heterosexuality is always assumed, expected, ordinary, and privileged. It’s pervasiveness makes it difficult for people to imagine other ways of life
