Thank you for restating this for us. You are right. Even my most liberal straight friends are unaware of the privilege that goes with the majority sexual orientation. It has only been recently, for instance, that I have felt empowered enough to talk about my family in the same way that most other people do; saying "my husband" without apology or fear. At church at the Peace, we kiss each other on the lips as do other married couples. Last Sunday we were sitting in front of a family with a teenager and a tween. I wondered what the parents and/or the kids thought when we kissed. They all in fact greeted us with the same gusto that they greeted others around them.
While we dismantle heterosexual privilege, we should be thinking of ways to build a sense of worth and privilege for all, not just gays, because that's what the Creator did in the very act of creation; the Creator who was pleased with what had come from the divine creative efforts.
