Ran across a great piece on the Huffington Post this week about a funny new sketch video, and it got me thinking about the power of language in the human social experience. Words are stronger than we often give them credit for--they conceptualize our entire experience and perception, they are how we classify what we experience.
Here's a preview:
For example, if lesbians totally invalidated heterosexual sex:
"It's not, like, really sex, you know?"
Or fetishized straight romantic relationships:
"You two are straight? Can I watch?"
Or took a tongue-in-cheek approach to straight sexual identity:
"It's cool if you're straight. I just don't want to see it!"
Definitely worth a look. I hooked you up with a link up above. Enjoy.
Have a wonderful day.
