IT’S BAD TO BE NORMATIVE
CATEGORY: General

Who says our colleges and Universities exist under some kind of stifling political correctness?

After some students were offended by Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments at Saturday’s Cultural Rhythms show, the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations have begun working together to increase sensitivity toward issues of sexuality at Harvard.

Students said that some of Pinkett Smith’s remarks concerning appropriate gender roles were specific to heterosexual relationships.

Jada, Jada, Jada…you should know better by now. How incredibly rude and insenitive of you! To make remarks “specific to hetrosexual relationships” even if you are one just isn’t done on college campuses today; especially, of all places, Harvard!

BGLTSA Co-Chair Jordan B. Woods ‘06 said that, while many BGLTSA members thought Pinkett Smith’s speech was “motivational,” some were insulted because they thought she narrowly defined the roles of men and women in relationships.

“Some of the content was extremely heteronormative, and made BGLTSA members feel uncomfortable,” he said.

The fact that this appears in the Harvard Crimson and not the Harvard Lampoon is probably an accident. How else can you explain the laughable way these poor schmucks twist themselves into knots trying to make an issue of of…what? Hetronormalcy? Is that a word? I can’t find it in my “Culturally Sensitive and Anti-Homophobic Guide to Surviving in a Politically Correct Environment” manual.

Calling the comments heteronormative, according to Woods, means they implied that standard sexual relationships are only between males and females.

“Our position is that the comments weren’t homophobic, but the content was specific to male-female relationships,” Woods said.

Margaret C. D. Barusch ‘06, the other BGLTSA co-chair, said the comments might have seemed insensitive in effect, if not in intent.

“I think the comments had a very strong focus for an extended period of time on how to effectively be in a relationship-a heterosexual relationship,” Barusch said. “I don’t think she meant to be offensive but I just don’t think she was that thoughtful.”

Poor Jada probably used the wrong code words one too many times. Plus, she didn’t use a stopwatch and time just how long she should have been talking about non”hetronormative” issues. I can’t imagine someone as nice as Jada Pinkett-Smith wishing to offend anyone much less a group known as the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations who had just given her the “Performer of the Year” award. So next time, I’m sure she’ll abide by the “equal time” provision in the political correctness handbook…that’s exactly equal time.

God! I’m glad I’m not in college today.

    Andrew Sullivan whom someone once thought was conservative is leading us down an even more dangerous path of lunacy. See Accelerating Down the Long, Slippery Slope

    WHAT did she say that was so bad? They never printed her comments. Now, I have no idea what this heteronormative word means, because it’s made-up B.S., but I’d like to hear what she had to say, in order to make my own decision…

    I call it “homooversensitive.” This is all I could find of her comments…no clue if she elaborated further on her heteronormative lifestyle.

    “Women, you can have it all – a loving man, devoted husband, loving children, a fabulous career,’’ she said. “They say you gotta choose. Nah, nah, nah. We are a new generation of women. We got to set a new standard of rules around here. You can do whatever it is you want. All you have to do is want it.”

    As a lesbian, I have trouble finding something offensive about that.

    Heteronormativity—A Nasty Word
    Are you used to thinking only in terms of the two “leading” genders? Then you are guilty of heteronormativity, and need to have an attitude adjustment.
