I am trying to understand my essay question, but need help putting it in simpler terms.

Question: How does Selvadurai’s text encourage a critique of normative ideas about gender and/or sexuality?

  • English -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shyam_Selvadurai

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normative
    "In philosophy, normative statements affirm how things should or ought to be, how to value them, which things are good or bad, which actions are right or wrong."

    I haven't read anything by this author, but if you have, you should be able to respond well.

    Does Selvadurai comment on his own and/or anyone else's sexuality? Does he talk/write about what SHOULD BE, not just what is?
