Great Expectations for Lesbians to Provide Unpaid Care
AbstractLesbian unpaid caregivers face significant challenges in their caregiving because a seeming lack of additional family responsibilities constructs them as model caregivers, while they and their partners continue to experience homophobia and heterosexism. The intersection of female gender, lesbian sexual orientation and heteronormative public policies disadvantages lesbians financially, socially and in health related contexts. Résumé Les lesbiennes qui ne sont pas payées qui donnent des soins à de proches dépendants font face à un défi significatif dans leur rôle de pourvoyeuse de soins, à cause du manque apparent de responsabilités familiale additionnelles les définissent comme un modèle de personnes qui donnent des soins à un proche dépendant, tandis que leur partenaires continuent à faire face à l'homophobie et à l'hétérosexisme. Le croisement du sexe féminin, de l'orientation sexuelle lesbienne et les politique publiques hétéro-normatives défavorisent les lesbiennes financièrement, socialement et dans les contextes reliés à la santé.
