roboticanary Posted September 23, 2021 Share Posted September 23, 2021 From this post: One thing that came up is that the amatonormative tropes talked about are mixed in with sexism. For example the idea that stalking is sort of fine if it is done to pursue romance is an idea rooted in sexism. So I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread discussing that link, the intersection between amatonormative ideas and sexism. From my experience here are a couple of things I have experienced that are amatonormative but also linked to sexism. being judged on my ability to 'pull' a woman as a measure of my worth. the stereotype of the bachelor as an untidy slob living on beans on toast 3 times a day. (stemming from the idea that women do the housework so men must be crap at keeping a decent place to live) family joking about my desire to learn at least some cooking (I distincty remember my grandad joking that I should just 'get a woman for that') So what other things can people think of? what are your thoughts on this? 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
