Tired of being called homophobic? Upgrade to being heternormative!

There is hope yet for Catholics who affirm Church teaching on homosexuality. If we are well-regarded in other matters, we may be forgiven our lapses in the area of sexuality. At least the folks at Hahhvard may be ready to cut us some slack... if we are in the entertainment business, people of color, and married to the man who saved the world from aliens (three times!). I'm not sure about the rest of us poor slobs.

Pinkett Smith’s Remarks Debated

Makes me wonder what on earth she said to deserve such opprobrium from the one side, and such cringing re-interpretation from the other. The article itself looked edited to satisfy standards of political correctness, limiting itself to "he said/she said"-type reporting of people's feelings and intentions, rather than their actual actions.

Bleah.

I like that term! It's actually descriptive of the view and leaves it to the individual user of the term to decide whether they think it's ok to see heterosexuality as normal or normative.

I too would like to know what she ACTUALLY said.
