The line between
I disagree with this point. I believe that although there is some degree of a return to a more normal masculinity with Tick's attempt to be a manly dad, and Bernadette's ability to punch a man out, there is still a great deal of the questioning of the hegemony and heteronormativity. I think the fact that Bernadette can punch out a man and still remain a women, anatomically and sociologically, straddles the line that doesn't lend itself to the hegemony. The fact that Bernadette does end up getting attached to a man, although could seem anti-subversive, the fact that she was born a he, and that the man she is seeing is actually open minded and "macho" furthers this separation.
The end of the movie also shows that this hegemonic idea doesn't work. As the men assume their characters as Abba/Drag queens, we can see that they are ultimately comfortable and happy in what they are doing. Drag isn't an imitation of women, but a breakage from assumed identities and the roles that we play. There is nothing hegemonic about them and their performances.
