Uncomfortable encounters. Dutch same-sex oriented young people's experiences and the relation with gender nonconformity in a heteronormative, tolerant society
Abstract and Figures
This dissertation centers on the question what Dutch same-sex oriented young people’s experiences are in a tolerant, yet heteronormative, society in which being ‘normal’ is highly valued. The meaning of gender nonconformity and power dynamics were pivotal. The dissertation is based on survey data among 1636 same-sex oriented people aged between 16-25, followed by 38 in-depth interviews. Empirical studies focus on: * perceived victimization, gender and gender nonconformity in various social contexts * experiencs of bisexual young people and the implications for bi-inclusive policy * labeling same-sex sexuality in relation to normalization, tolerance, heteronormativity and post-gay * gendered sexual scripts in gay and lesbian public venues and the relation to hegemonic masculinity/femininity and the heteronormative asymmetrical gender order Final conclusions concentrate on uncomfortable encounters, the Dutch culture of tolerance, heteronormativity, subtle intolerance, intersecting normativities, and the recommendation for a perspective based on diversity instead of equality and normality.
