The Unbearable Heteronormativity of Biology


"Romance is just the vacuous finery of biological processes," reads the blurb introducing the above Cracked.com video — 6 Ways Your Body Tells You Who to Love. This is hardly anything new for anyone with basic scientific knowledge, but interesting nonetheless in the times we find ourselves in.

Five of the six process described relate directly to reproduction; "Reproductive science is controlling us like puppets." Lipstick lesbians might be partly explained by one of the processes, but do they even exist in the real world? The question I have is that if Biology is as heteronormative as some religions (all of them actually), will it too come under attack?
