Name Instructor Class 20 October 2013 Oppressive Gender Relations in Heteronormative Societies and Fields Heteronormative societies enforce stereotyped gender roles and expectations that continue to shape modern mainstream gender identities and relations. The term “heteronormative” is used in the essay as the worldview that produces and strengthens beliefs, attitudes, and practices, where heterosexuality is considered as the only dominant valid sexual orientation and where the male sex dominates over the female sex and other genders (Bedford 2)…
Gender, politics, and race intersect in producing repressive heteronormative gender relations. Lindsey Feitz and Joane Nagel explore the intersections of gender, war, and sexuality in “The Militarization of Gender and Sexuality in the Iraq War.” They assert that although the U.S. military employs more women in army operations nowadays, the same heteronormative relations are imposed on the latter. Feitz and Nagel add the complication of race, as sexuality and gender issues intersect. They talk about the example of the rescue of Private First Class Jessica Lynch, whose race and gender contrasted to those of her takers, where “American men [were] saving a pretty, young, white American woman from the possible sexual and personal assault by dark and dangerous Iraqis” (206). ...
Gil Z. Hochberg presents heteronormativity that is more racial than sexual, although the causes and effects have gendered dimensions in “‘Check Me Out’: Queer encounters in Sharif Waked’s Chic Point: Fashion for Israeli Checkpoints.” Hochberg shows how checkpoints in West Bank and Gaza depict heteronormative exploitation. In his analysis, he asserts that checkpoints serve to “produce the Palestinian body both as a symbol of imminent danger (“the terrorist”) and as the object of complete subjugation lacking any political agency (“the occupied”)” (578). Because these checkpoints target both men and women, heteronormativity is depicted in a regional scale, wherein one male nationality controls and suppresses a different male and female nationality. Sex and gender become political arenas of power over those who are more powerless or those whom the dominant race wants to render powerless. The male gaze is an important image of heteronormative sexuality production in several articles. How the heteronormative male sees women affects how they treat them. Feitz and Nagel indicate the role of gender in the male military gaze. Military personnel, for instance, continue to see military women in their stereotyped roles (Feitz and Nagel 204). Female soldiers continue to be embedded into the heteronormative aspirations of the military in specific and the American society in general. In “Securitizing Gender: Identity, Biometrics, and Transgender Bodies at the Airport,” Paisley Currah and Tara Mulqueen explore gender issues in the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) gender and biometrics practices. They describe that by using biometrics and comparing its results that to gender information, TSA’s programs ...

This essay understands the connection among the writings of Gil Z. Hochberg, Kate Bedford, Lindsey Feitz and Joane Nagel, and Paisley Currah and Tara Mulqueen. They assert the existence of heteronormative spaces in modern society, where heteronormative refers to the belief that heterosexuality is the only right form of sexual relations, and that stereotyped traditional heterosexual gender relations are valid.
In contrast, belief does not enrich knowledge (Plato et al. 181; par. 477e).
Belief is like a multiply fractured mirror that inadequately reflects what reality is. Knowledge enables one to reach the roots of reality. Therefore, knowledge
