Heteronormative

Denoting or relating to a world view that promotes heterosexuality as the normal or preferred sexual orientation.

We live in a largely heteronormative society, meaning one that privileges heterosexual (straight), cisgender* (see cisgender definition) and monogamous (only has one partner) people, and marginalises* (see marginalised definition) anyone who does not conform to these very rigid ideals.
