The Heterosexual Questionnaire

If you’re straight and someone asked you, “Is it possible your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?” how would you react? Check out the heterosexual questionnaire, created by a psychotherapist to illustrate the heterosexist bias lurking in mainstream society.

    This questionnaire is part of the teaching materials in Crooks and Baur’s My Sexuality, which my current (conservative religious) school uses as the Human Sexuality text.  This and last semester, when I co-taught it, the professor read out the questions, and it was amazing to see the expressions on the faces of the students, as if they’d never considered the “other side.”  I think it’s a great way to a) have a little fun at the expense of society’s pervasive heteronormativity and b) show straight people how uninformed and silly their stereotypes and assumptions can be.
