Discussing the weirdness of Heteronormativity with Jessa crispin+Podcast!

Heterosexuality can be really weird, especially when you have to prove it to the government. Heterosexuality is baked so deeply into our legal, social and government infrastructure that it impacts almost every facet of our lives.

*listen to You do You, a Dating Podcast here:


This week, Kaley and Sarah are joined by author, critic and podcast host Jessa Crispin to talk about the ways in which heteronormativity has impacted her life. Crispin never intended to get married. But a green card marriage was the only solution to keeping her German long time partner in the United States. Proving the validity of your intimate relationship to the government is awkward business, and even more awkward if you’ve been ideologically and vocally against marriage for a long time.
Listen to this episode for a deep, critical take at heterosexuality as one of the most taken for granted constructs of all time.
