Romancing HeterosexualityinPopular Culture,
by Chrys Ingraham
“Match a pretty girl with a handsome guy. It’s true love, now don’t be shy. Dress them in a tux and a wedding gown…. They’re the happiest couple in town! Next a chapel wedding for the bride and groom, then send them off on their honeymoon. Now move them into their family home… add special stickers to make it their own! The time has come for a sweet surprise… a dear little baby with love in her eyes! Inside! A baby for you after saying ‘I do!’.”
