In many arenas the debate is raging over the nature of sexual orientation. Queer Words, Queer Images addresses this debate, but with a difference, arguing that homosexuality has become an issue precisely because of the way in which we discuss, debate, and communicate about the concept and experience of homosexuality. The debate over homosexuality is fundamentally an issue of communication--as we can see by the recent controversy over gays in the military. This controversy, termed by one gay man as the annoying habit of heterosexual men to overestimate their own attractiveness, has been debated in communication-sensitive terms, such as morale and discipline. The twenty chapters address such subjects as gay political language, homosexuality and AIDS on prime-time television, the politics of male homosexuality in young adult fiction, the identification of female athleticism with lesbianism, the politics of identity in the works of Edmund White, and coming out strategies. This is must reading for students of communication practices and theory, and for everyone interested in human sexuality.

Devito (Hunter College, CUNY), Timothy Edgar (Purdue), Mary Anne Fitzpatrick (Wisconsin, Madison), Karen A.

"They all raise gender-related issues that affect the beliefs and actions of contemporary women and men. The writings in this widely diversified anthology consider these issues, mainly from feminist perspectives, plus other issues equally provocative. The authors of the selections - female and male, straight and gay, and representing minority as well as dominant cultural perspectives - draw on their own experiences to philosophize and draw conclusions based on thoughtful analysis. Helpful introductions and thought-provoking questions by the editor set the stage for each article and then raise further areas for thought on the part of the reader."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
