Viciously Heteronormative Speculation From Slate

I thought Slate was more progressive than that.

Naturally, with the recent "news" regarding certain entanglements some astronauts have found themselves in, the question of SPACE SEX has arisen.

Slate tries to answer this question.

My question, as a reliably lefty hang out, how could Slate be so heteronormative as to not even entertain the notion that sex in space could happen in any manner other than between a man and a woman?

(and given the lengthy stays some astronauts and cosmonauts have enjoyed, the likelihood that 'self loving' has occured seems high, yet the Slate article doesn't speculate along those lines, either)
