From Michele Aaron's article, one thing I found interesting was when she mentioned how "queer television" or shows usually incorporate/scream "straight." Or rather, the show's "straight" community is usually seen as the "worst," meaning the queer in the show is seen as most "normal." Except what is meant by "normal?" Should we have such a term as "normal?" Must a show, especially a queer show, portray it's queer [society] as "better" or as Aaron puts it, "more normal," than the rest of the troupe in order to succeed or penetrate the mainstream audiences?
