Hegemony, Binary and Heteronormativity

Hegemony,

This Is the dominance of one social class over another. Not just political or economical control, the idea that ideologies are accepted as natural.

Binary

This is the idea that all elements of human culture can be understood in relation to one another. An example of this is the relationship between upper class an lower class.

Heteronormativity

This is the belief that society is built upon strict norms and values for different genders, meaning heterosexuality is the ‘norm’. Anything outside of this definition transgresses the ‘norm’ for example homosexuals and transgender.
