What does it mean? Well, it starts off "hetero," so you know it can't be good.

Seems to mean "encouraging and validating heterosexual norms and lifestyle choices."

So, you know-- big bad.

Apparently Jada Pinkett Smith is being accused of "heteronormative" speech, and that's got the Harvard GLBT community all up in a lather.

You really gotta read what the woman actually said. Basically, just a you-go-girl bit of fluff, but she made the big mistake of suggesting that women could have, should they desire such, husbands and babies as well as a career.

And you know-- that's practically hate speech now.

Kaus snarks off this idiotic contretemps with as much sarcasm as is necessary, without putting too much work into dispensing of such nonsense.

Top Ten Subjects Accused By the Harvard GLBT of Being "Heteronormative"

10. Mr. Roper

9. Anyone uncomfortable with the gossip-column buzzword "cannoodling"

8. Less "heterocritical" publications of the mainstream magazine industry, esp. Modern Bride, House & Garden, and Juggs: Home of the D-Cups

7. Brett Fuckin' Favre

6. Beer commercials, esp. those that make prominent display of busty women or boorish male behavior or, for that matter, beer

5. Jake

4. The Fat Man

3. Whitesnake, esp. the outrageously "heteronormative" Tawny Kitaen grinding on Jaguars

2. That late-night show on QVC where they try to sell you a set of three hundred knives ("look at that... that's a sweet little tactical folder... and you've got over two hundred more of them if you call within the next thirty seconds") as well as replica swords from Lord of the Rings and Krull

...and the Number One Subject of Harvard GBLT Complaints About Being "Heteronormative"...

1. Three words: Bob Dole's cock
