“ The primary subcategories through which we understand sexuality—principally homo- and heterosexuality—have provided an all too efficient framework for classifying and evaluating human affection. The modern byproduct of our centuries-old investment in sexuality as a window into human personality, behavior, psychology, and identity becomes an oppressive command to locate, express, and speak of our sexual desires while paradoxically policing their every permutation. As Foucault repeatedly points out the sexological invention of an essential, bifurcated sexuality not only impoverishes our relational world, but also and more insidiously, provides a useful tool for the social management of individuals—heterosexuals and homosexuals alike—in the maintenance of patriarchal, heteronormative power structures. ”
