since hetero is the "defacto" standard, i dont really think it always should be.

Yup, we're becoming an endangered species, especially where I live (fruitier than a Banana plantation).

Yes they should.

Why the hell wouldn't they?

"hetero is the "defacto" standard"

Studies on female heterosexuality (i.e., women's studies, that doesn't focus on lesbians) are quite often included in the gender studies pantheon: women's studies, gay/lesbian/bi/trans studies. I'm wondering, don't male heterosexuals also have a gender? I think so. Thus, I wonder why such studies are excluded from the discipline.

Sure, it makes sense since males are a gender.

They aren't already?

I don't see why they wouldn't be... Last time I checked men were a gender.

I don't see why they shouldn't be.

The topic comes up, but usually as a comparison. My womens' studies classes all compared and contrasted men and women of either orientation.

Yes?

They should, and goodness, they are.

Yes. Straight men are so discriminated against nowadays. (I'm only half kidding.)
