Heteronormativity – a concept analysis : ”Everyone is both a victim and a supporter of the system” (English)
Abstract [sv]

Begreppet heteronormativitet användes i litteraturen första gången 1993. Begreppet går att finna i ordböcker och lexikon från 2006, men endast ett par av de moderna ordböckerna och lexikonen har inför begreppet. Idag saknar begreppet en exakt definition. En begreppsanalys syftar till att identifiera karakteristika för ett begrepp genom undersökning av dess användning. Vårdrelationer kan och bör utvecklas till en vårdande relation, vilket bygger på en kontakt innefattande kropp, själ och ande mellan vårdare och patient. Syftet var att beskriva och fördjupa förståelsen av begreppet heteronormativitet utifrån ett omvårdnadsperspektiv. Begreppsanalys enligt Rodgers metod innefattande 23 vetenskapliga artiklar och annan litteratur som resulterade i sju definierade attribut; antaganden, normer, samhällshierarkier, sanktioner för dem som avviker från normen, könsroller, sexuella relationer och stereotyp familjesyn. I analysen identifierades också vad som föregår begreppet, två kvinnor som arbetar med begreppet samt fem relaterade begrepp; jämställdhet, genus, makt, diskriminering och homofobi. En rad konsekvenser av vilka samtliga var negativa för såväl individ som samhälle konstaterades. Sjukvården påverkas negativt på flera sätt av heteronormativitet, bland annat omöjliggörs den vårdande relationen. Konklusion: Heteronormativitet leder till en rad olika problem och alla är både offer och supportrar av systemet.

Abstract [en]

The concept heteronormativity was used in the literature for the first time in 1993. This term can be found in dictionaries and encyclopedias from 2006 but only in a few of the most modern publications. The term currently lacks an exact definition. The aim of concept analysis is to identify characteristics for a term by studying its use. Healthcare relations can and should be developed into a caring relation, which is dependent on a connection involving body, mind and soul between the caregiver and the patient. The aim of this work was to describe and deepen the understanding of the term heteronormativity from a healthcare perspective. Rodgers’ evolutionary concept analysis of 23 scientific papers and common newspapers resulted in seven defined attributes: assumptions, norms, social hierarchies, sanctions for those deviating from the norm, gender roles, sexual relationships and stereotype family apprehension. The analysis also identified what precedes the concept, two women working with the concept and five related concepts: equality, gender, power, discrimination and homophobia. A number of consequences of which all were negative for both individuals and the society were found. Healthcare is negatively influenced in several ways by heteronormativity rendering the caring relation impossible. Conclusion: Heteronormativity leads to a number of problems and everyone are both victims and supporters of the system.
