"This is othering..."

"This is othering for anyone who is not a heterosexual man, including, obviously, women, and contributes to their invisibility in the field."

There was an edit that I just rolled back, but I wanted to explain further. The above text isn't assuming that all women are heterosexual. it's saying that women are not men (and therefore, are not heterosexual men).

I tend to think any sentence with "obviously" in it needs to be rephrased, so there is room for improvement here, but the edit wasn't an improvement. Monadic (talk) 23:27, January 13, 2013 (UTC)
