"The parody of "heterosexuality"-- when and where it exists in gay cultures-- is always and only an imitation of an imitation, a copy of a copy, for which there is no original." (Butler) This quote embodies the metonymy of queer-ness so well. Without homosexuality, there would be no heterosexuality. It goes back to the discussion that a "thing" cannot exist with the absence of a binary opposition. There is no original sexuality, there just is deviations of sexuality.
My piece of artwork is very clearly an illustration of the pride flag. If you can see, the text says the iconic "love is love". While the pride flag and the associated slogan is, without a doubt, a beautiful sentiment, it begs the question, why do we have a "gay" pride flag when there is no "straight" pride flag? In deconstructing the deconstruction of queer theory, it is interesting to me that this piece of art can exist without an opposing one, unlike so many of the binary oppositions we have previously discussed. If heterosexuality cannot exist without homosexuality, how can the pride flag exist for one sexuality without existing for any other sexuality?
