“Down Low” Acosta * what are the values of familialism? 1. Familial support: the belief that one must support their family in times of need 2. familial interconnectedness: the belief that family must remain physically and emotionally close when possible 3. familial honor: the belief that the individual is responsible for preserving the familial name 4. subjugation of self for family: the belied that an individual must respect family rules * describe the strategies these Latinas used to navigate their family’s reactions to their sexuality Erasure strategy: premised on hypermanipulation and control, attempting to force the daughters out of dating other women. Silencing strategies: avoiding conversations pertaining to sexuality altogether, ultimately silencing this aspect of their lives. Avoidance after disclosure: participants disclose (either forcefully or voluntarily) their sexual noncomformities to families but then chose with their families to render the disclosure unheard of all together (leaving the girls with no one to talk to about their relationships due to Latinas being taught to keep issues within the family). Carrigan * what is AVEN? What is AVEN’s definition of asexuality? AVEN is the Asexual Visibility and Education Network. They host the world’s largest online asexual community. AVEN’s definiton of asexuality is: someone who does not experience sexual attraction. * describe asexuals’ distinction between romance and sex Asexuals distinct between romance and sex because they supposedly don’t experience sexual attraction. So, they can engage in a purely romantic relationships doing things like
cuddling, hand-hollding. They will even masturbate, but distinguish it as their sex drive as opposed to actual sexual attraction or being sexual. Steinbugler * how is “visibility a form of heterosexual privilege?” Heterosexual intimacy is overtly visible in social spaces. A man and a woman can  comfortably express affection in any social setting without violence. * is same-sex intimacy entering an “era of visibility?” Explain with examples. Yes. "explosion of gay visibility" includes news coverage of gay related issues, gay sport  stars and rockstars, gay TV characters, gay cartoon characters, gay entrepreneurs, gay  days at theme parks, a gay MasterCard, and a gay beer. * what are some problems with assuming sexual relationships are monoracial? (1) Presuming monoraciality ignores the rapidly increase number of interracial  relationships in the United States. (2) Analyzing interracial sexual relationships allows us to see how racial difference may  disrupt heterosexual privileges and further marginalize lesbian and gay men.
