Media and challenges to normative gender and sexuality clips

From Wald, the Backstreet Boys, "I Want it That Way"

Blink-182, "All the Small Things"

Backstreet Boys, "Larger than Life"

From Taylor, instructional video on creating Everquest characters

From Cohan, selection of clips from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy

From Frank, the first segment of the "After the Final Rose" special for the recently completed Bachelor 13. Here, bachelor Jason tells Melissa, the woman he had chosen in the final episode, that he does not want to be with her and instead wants to be with the runner-up Molly. If you must watch more (can't blame you if you do--this thing has already sucked up way too much of my day), the first part is available here and you can get to the other segments from it.

Check out John's post below for a couple of more contemporary slash examples to help illustrate the Penley article.
