Abstract

This essay suggests that critical heterosexuality studies may provide a more effective basis to challenge straight supremacy than have queer studies and gay and lesbian studies. The essay also suggests pedagogical tools for use in the legal classroom to make students more aware of internalized heternormativity.

Keywords: heterosexuality, homosexuality, heteronormativity, homonormativity, interpellation, conceptual liquidation, queer theory, gay and lesbian studies, straight studies, Gramsci, organic intellectual
