According to Philip Hammack, a professor of psychology at the University of California at Santa Cruz, there is a gentle revolution to comprehend 21st-century sincere and loving relationships.
Scientists should take these changes into account, so the results of their research are more convincing.
UC can read the analysis of Philip Hammack in an article published in the newspaper Santa Cruz. "Queer Intimacies: A New Paradigm for the Study of Relationship Diversity" uses the word "queer" to describe all relationships that arise from heteronormativity and monogamy.
The researcher in psychology emphasizes the proper evolution of relationships. A number of close relationship definitions have been built and developed around a monogamous and heterosexual norm since the year 2000, including polyamyl, hetero-variability or pansexuality, as well as relationship and shooting patterns. More visible and applicable.
From heteronormativity to heteroflexity
For Hammack, the legalization of gay marriage in the United States in 2015 is the initiator of this freedom of practice. Through this legalization, the Supreme Court has symbolically encouraged people to fight for recognition of their relationship.
Following this legalization, many applications are visible and strengthened. For example, more and more heterosexual, heterosexual, without identifying themselves as bisexual, do not approach the potential of establishing a relationship with a person of the same gender / gender.
Philip Hammack explains that heteroflexility is always less integrated into the female environment, but that this definition of sexual orientation is increasingly adopted by men. Which leads to a structure of "masculinity" codes.
The researcher also emphasizes the great importance of the Internet in the development of these intimate relationships. The tool allows access to both more information and communities to get together.
For more representative results
While intimate and romantic relationships are often defined by the existence of sexual relations, visualization of asexuality makes it possible to reverse these codes. Sexuality is the fact that I do not feel sexual attraction to anyone.
Until 2013, it was revealed that asexuality was removed from the manual of the diagnosis and statistics of mental disorders and there was no evidence that there was a profound connection between the very limited relationship design standards in the Western system.
Philip Hammack also reminds that kayb perverse ölçü or fetishist relations have greatly depreciated in society and scientific research. This is usually for researchers with subclass relations. They are therefore often left out.
This highly normative intimate relationship model prevents meaningful outcomes from changing society. For this reason, Philip Hammack invites other scientists to expand their databases on intimate and romantic relationships.
