  • Abstract:  In this note we propose to deal, from a particular vantage point, with the Constitutional Court's judgment in Le Roux & others v Dey (Freedom of Expression Institute and Restorative Justice Centre as Amici Curiae) 2011 (3) SA 274 (CC): we investigate how heteronormativity (as a cultural phenomenon) influences the determination in the majority judgment (authored by Brand AJ) that defamation had been committed by the applicants. By using the term 'heteronormativity' we mean to gesture at the set of cultural practices and assumptions that privilege heterosexuality and assume that the monogamous heterosexual couples represent the principle of social union itself.
