'The best interests of the child': reflecting on the family and the law as sites of oppressive hetero-socialisation
If you would like to obtain a copy of this Research Output, please contact Hanlie Baudin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This chapter aims to reflect on some of the ways in which hetero-socialisation operates within the family as an institution and within the law as an authority that lays claim to and delimits ideas of acceptable bodies and behaviours. Employing a multi-disciplinary approach, this chapter reflects on oppressive heteronormative values and how these often operate in opposition to the best interests of non-heterosexual children.
