DaddyCell (talk · contribs), I really don't see why this article is needed. The material in it is, or can be, covered in other articles. There is nothing in it that can't be covered in the Heterosexuality and/or Patriarchy articles. Furthermore, I do not see that the term is WP:Notable. Also see WP:NEO.

One more thing: The cishomonormativity red link you have in the article indicates that you are considering creating that article. If you do, I will send it to WP:AfD. For why, I again refer you WP:NEO. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 00:25, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Flyer22 Reborn (talk · contribs), thanks for your opinion. I fully see the importance of this article, as it is independent from those which you propose. Of course they are related, but it incorporates new stances from both and other articles, so in case of merging them it would loose its own context. I know it is a short one, but there is a lot of theory and activism going on around this concept. For sure someone will expand it in the near future.
It is the same problem with the section homonormativity, which looses part of its meaning by being inside the article heteronormativity. Anyhow, I'm thinking of creating just a redirection from cishomonormativity to that section, and maybe in the future someone can expand it as well and create a propper article.

Heteropatriarchy is not a neologism. It is a key term in feminist, LGBT and queer studies. It is not reducible to patriarchy (societies privileging men are not necessarily also homophobic, for example; same is true for matriarchy). In my experience, articles related to feminist and LGBT issues are subjected to deletion and this kind of questioning far more than are articles grounded in other fields. Students, in particular, encountering this word in their research need to have a decent overview of the term and its history. If anything, this page could use more elaboration.

Sandstein, why do you feel that this was a "no consensus" matter? At Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Heteropatriarchy (2nd nomination), I see consensus for deleting or merging, with more of an emphasis on merging. I see no consensus for keeping. WP:Consensus is about the weight of the arguments, not votes. I don't see how the arguments for keeping were strong, especially compared to the delete and merge rationales.

You should add the effect of heteropatriarchy on minorities in that gender and sexual minorities are disadvantaged by the dominant group's privilege. Tie in how heteropatriarchy is related to misogyny and androcentrism. Other general suggestions: remove "from the feminist vision." It isn't necessary, and if you think about it, it sounds unintentionally biased as if it's saying "Well, this is what feminists believe it is/is happening." Instead just say what it is not this is what these people say this is. Two questions relevant to the article: What are some early and recent examples of heteropatriarchy? Is heteropatriarchy strictly discriminatory to gender and sexuality minorities, or can it also be discriminatory to racial and ethnic minorities? --Mmoore122 (talk) 04:59, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
There should be a section on the historical implementation of heteropatriarchy. This hierarchical system is often the result of colonialism, and is reinforced by other social systems such as religion. For example, the United States utilizes a heteropatriarchal system to uphold gender and class privilege and this framework is supported by Christianity, a dominant religion in the U.S. This chapter is a useful citation- Smith, Andrea. "Heteropatriarchy and the three pillars of white supremacy: Rethinking women of color organizing." Transformations: Feminist Pathways to Global Change 264 (2015). There should also be a section on the effects of heteropatriarchy, a section on heteropatriarchy from an intersectional context. Memarti8 (talk) 03:36, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Not sure why this information can't be covered by patriarchy since the assumption of patriarchy is that it is dominated by heterosexual men so there should be no need to emphasize heterosexuality. I can understand what you are trying to get at but there needs to more information including how it affects other marginalized sexualities.

A common argument on here seems to be that this topic can be covered by Patriarchy pages. I think it is important to note this- patriarchy is a broad and common term that showcases the power of 'men' in society.It conjures up the idea that the 49% of men control the rest of the population. To be oppressed by a group that is represented by almost half of society does not seem all that ludicrous. However, since we know heterosexuality excludes the many other gender identities from power, the group that heteropatriarchy covers is much smaller and exemplifies the absurdity of a small privileged elite through the name.
Also, hetero-sexism as a practice uses the damaging constructions of gender to create the hierarchical system necessary for patriarchy to occur as an economic process. Without the socialized identities of men and women cultivated in a sexist way, subordinating women- it would be difficult for patriarchy to occur. Memarti8 (talk) 03:45, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
The article leaves out cisgender females' privilege over (out) transgender and (out)nonbinary gender orientations (based on sex and gender normativity...and not on folks in the closet or passing as strait or gender normative). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:00, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
I tried to identify the field in the first sentence but feminist theory may not be ideal. The article is also in Category:LGBT feminism, which itself has subcategories Category:Lesbian feminism, Category:Queer feminism and Category:Transfeminism. —PaleoNeonate – 11:13, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
I noticed the original research tag and it may well be true. On the other hand, multiple sources used really are about heteropatriarchy, not only sexual orientation or patriarchy alone. —PaleoNeonate – 11:18, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
