Title: If you say it three ways, it still doesn't mean it's true: The pervasiveness of heteronormativity in early childhood education

Abstract: Heteronormativity, the concept that heterosexuality is an institutionalised norm, and a superior and privileged standard, is held firm when related discourses of gender, sexualities and family form converge. In a study of heteronormative discourse in the context of early childhood education, teachers shared accounts of practices where notions of gender, sexuality and family form were in some way troubling. An analysis of these accounts showed the repetitive constitution of heterosexual sexuality as normal.
