This commentary on Frost's comparison of the meaning of intimacy in heterosexual and same‐sex couples explores how the concept of differences between advantaged and disadvantaged groups has often been used to further stigmatize the latter group. The commentary notes that feminist critiques have provided a way to avoid this trap, which is reflected in Frost's study. This research represents a creative mix of theories and methods that provides important, nuanced findings while avoiding reifying the traditional heterosexual/same‐sex hierarchy.
