Heteronormativity in Action

actuallyredorchid:

My eldest daughter just started kindergarten. There was one other child starting at the same time as her, so we had a joint introduction with this child’s parents. Which are both women. And the thing is, even as someone who’s (I hope) pretty conscious about heteronormative structures and behaviours, and in spite of overwhelming evidence that the people before me were a couple (sitting close together with their baby on one of their laps, filling in forms jointly, quietly talking about pick-up times and shopping runs, displaying over-all romantic body language, showing identical proud smiles when their kid picked up a pen and drew a doodle on one of the forms, and the simple fact that they were there for freaking parent introduction) my brain still fired the questions “but what if they’re just friends?”, “maybe they’re sisters who just look very little alike?” and other similar illogical things that would never in a million years have popped up had the couple been a man and a woman.

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:

*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man:
Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee:
Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man:
I never filled out an application.
Employee:
Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man:
No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee:
Well, but that doesn't-
Man:
AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee:
But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man:
OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee:
Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man:
Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee:
...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man:
Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee:
That...doesn't make any sense.
Man:
NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Employee:
Man:
Employee:
Man:
Fuck you, slut.
