i'm curious as to how heteronormative facebook might be.
if you are or have been in some form of a "tentative" relationship with a person of the same gender on facebook (ex. just "in a relationship" or "in an open relationship"), do/did you see a lot of ads regarding engagement rings, etc.?
if you are or have been engaged to someone of the same gender on facebook, do/did you get a lot of ads about wedding stuffs?
if you are or have been in a marriage, civil union, domestic partnership etc. with someone of the same gender on facebook, do/have you seen ads that seem to be targeting you based on that relationship?
i'm guessing this may also vary across gender lines, so please do include whether you identify as a male, female, etc. on facebook or not, if you're willing to do so.
ads inflicted on me, a female engaged to a male, though "interested in" both males and females:
"lose __ #s in 4 weeks!"
"cute bridesmaid dresses!"
"find the perfect wedding accessories!"
"free baby stuff!"
"shop ___ for top dress designers and help from personal stylists!"
"amino diet - fit in your dream dress!"
"shop at ___ for your head to toe wedding look!"
"enter for a chance to win gown/trip/jewelry"
"join the _(overpriced store)_ registry today!"
"have the wedding of your dreams!!"
the male i'm engaged to currently has ads for "buy this hoodie!" and something about a jellyfish aquarium... he's only seen one or two ads relating to weddings/marriage.
