Another puzzle in the tradition of five from four:

I am three, but my second can be any of the five.

  • My first is placed above you.
  • My second believes itself normative.
  • My third is of wild popularity.
  • My fourth is alluring and desirable.
  • My fifth can be all around you.

I think the answer is

H_T

And we obtain the explanations by

Placing the nth vowel in the space

My first is placed above you.

HAT

My second believes itself normative.

HET (referring to hetero-normativity, I think)

My third is of wild popularity.

HIT

My fourth is alluring and desirable.

HOT

My fifth can be all around you.

HUT

I am three, but my second can be any of the five.

Three letters long but the second letter can be any of the five vowels.
