Summary and Info
Interrogating a broad array of lesbian, gay, and feminist theories, this book considers instances of unnecessarily divisive turf-battling, yet focuses primarily on the productive debates that define and vitalize the field. Moving beyond the classic opposition that pits the sex-positive leftist academy against abstract "sexism" and "homophobia," Foertsch's text isolates oppositions within gender and sexuality studies, considering homophobic feminist theories, sexist (or anti-feminist) gay theories, and the field's tendency to triangulate itself in two-against-one fashion or in contests between two camps for the allegiance of the third.
