So I’m doing a video called “The Reinforcement of Homonormativity Using Queer Characters on TV,” and I’m using Modern Family, The New Normal, and Grey’s Anatomy for analysis/video clips/examples.
I’m not familiar with Grey’s, but I wanted to include a same-sex couples of men and women, so I started researching Arizona and Callie. On Callie’s wiki page, there’s this quote “Torres struggles with her bisexuality, and cheats on her with Sloan.”
Subtle biphobia woo! It can’t just be “Torres struggles with her feelings towards Sloan?” Nope, she’s struggling with her bisexuality of course. And it’s my understanding that the character ends up ID’ing as a lesbian…? (I’m having trouble finding that info.) Or at least, she’s apparently perceived as such by 90% of blogs/Tumblr posts/Google results.
Also, if any of y’all are have any insight/video clips/etc on any of the three shows, I’d appreciate it. I’m the most familiar with Modern Family, but I’m sure you all have read posts/seen blogs/have some kind of insight. Thanks!
