What is Compulsory Heterosexuality? Ft. Alayna Joy Bad Behavior

    • Society & Culture

Over the pandemic, I came out… again. So we thought we’d dive into one of the biggest culprits for my confusion: Compulsory Heterosexuality. Plus, we had a chance to chat to one of my favourite YouTubers, Alayna Joy!Women’s sexualities are often discussed in terms of, and defined by, our relationships with men. Compulsory heterosexuality is the theory that heterosexuality is assumed and enforced upon women by a patriarchal and heteronormative society. Comp het is reinforced through fairy tales, in movies, in magazine quizzes about 'how to satisfy your man', in the dreams your parents have for you, and every time a stranger at a barbecue asks 'do you have a boyfriend?'
