I wanted grouper, but the Fish Man stuck the fillet under my nose and said, “You don’t want this whiffy piece of crap. Have the halibut.” So I did, and glazed it with red wine, ginger, and Major Grey chutney.
Blaming pedagogue M writes in with this request:
“I’m trying to track down a good reading, article-length, to give to my students. Something that can break down just how the patriarchy, specifically the globalized capitalist godbag-ridden manifestation of patriarchy, uses heteronormativity to their own ends. In other words, is there a good nugget-sized piece on how assholes want us all to be in neat little hetero nuclear units so they can more easily market our brains out?
I figured you would know. Among all my shelves & boxes of books and articles, I can’t seem to find one that makes this connection in the bald, in-your-face kind of way that this particular group of students is likely to need.”
Sadly, M has grossly overestimated my bibliographical talents. I can’t think of a thing. In an effort not to let her down like a drunken stepfather, I chuck the problem at you geniuses.
