Word Of The Day 4.24.15: HETERONORMATIVE

het·ero·nor·ma·tive ˌhē-tə-rō-‘nor-mə-tiv
:  of, relating to, or based on the attitude that heterosexuality is the only normal and natural expression of sexuality

“Supporting” queer rights as long as queer people don’t express or make known their sexuality while taking no issue with straight couples having a picture of their spouse on their desk, holding hands in public, and casually talking about dates or opposite sex partners is an example of thinly veiled heteronormativity.
