While I do agree with Butler that we as individuals are performing genders all the time, I would disagree that it is to imitate heterosexuality. Because one may identity as a masculine or effeminate individual and have partners that exude the opposites attributed to "preference" because the sheer nature of performing, I feel that genders are fluid and ever changing. There is way more occurrences I would argue that have relative neutral identities as well as far as dominance and passivity. I do also agree that the movie is a heterosexual replica however in the sense that the stereotypes played off to reinforce a heterosexual marriage between the kids is why I would argue that the movie itself promotes a hegemony of a heterosexual underlining.
