Heteronormativity. All systems and attitudes in society that make heterosexuality the dominant norm. These treat the woman/man distinction as the most important distinction that exists between people; other experiences of gender don’t exist under heteronormativity. Finally, it puts strict rules on how a heterosexual person (or anyone), woman or man, should behave.
