When do you learn that "normal" doesn't include lots of yelling, lots of sleeping, lots of beating?

Self-sacrificing mothers and forgiving wives, caretaking lesbians, and vigilant maternal surrogates—these "good women" are all familiar figures in the visual and print culture relating to AIDS. In a probing critique of that culture, Katie Hogan demonstrates ways in which literary and popular works use the classic image of the nurturing female to render "queer" AIDS more acceptable, while consigning women to conventional roles and reinforcing the idea that everyone with this disease is somehow suspect.In times of crisis, the figure of the idealized woman who is modest and selfless has repeatedly surfaced in Western culture as a balm and a source of comfort—and as a means of mediating controversial issues. Drawing on examples from journalism, medical discourse, fiction, drama, film, television, and documentaries, Hogan describes how texts on AIDS reproduce this historically entrenched paradigm of sacrifice and care, a paradigm that reinforces biases about race and sexuality. Hogan believes that the growing nostalgia for women's traditional roles has deflected attention away from women's own health needs. Throughout her book, she depicts caretaking as a fundamental human obligation, but one that currently falls primarily to those members of society with the least power. Only by rejecting the stereotype of the "good woman," she says, can Americans begin to view caretaking as the responsibility of the entire society.

Ann Girard is a black woman, born to black parents. But she has blue eyes, straight hair and fair skin. Because of her own questionable features, she has experienced a problematic existence. Her life has now become even more complicated with the news of her unexpected pregnancy. Ann wants to be elated about her impending arrival, but is plagued with the overwhelming concern about a future filled with cruelties afflicted upon her firstborn child because of his or her features. Her unfeigned worry is rooted in her own awkward experiences based on "blackness." As she prepares for motherhood, Ann chronicles her first memories as a child through her passage into adulthood, and describes how she was forced to adjust while being catapulted back and forth between black neighborhoods and predominately white environments, constantly antagonized and questioned about her true "blackness." As Ann records her daunting experiences of trying to belong, she undergoes a re-birth, thus redefining her philosophies of everything she ever knew. Readers are immediately pulled into this poignant tale based upon the complexities of intra-racial relations, as K. Broussard overlaps a heartfelt third person voice that details the experiences of an expectant mother, with an intimate forthright first person voice of Ann "speaking" to her unborn child about her own painful journey and discovery of what looks like black.

The desire to write this book was at first born out of frustration of yet another failed relationship. In the midst of this frustration, I attempted to explain what I felt love really was, to someone who I thought at that moment to not have a clue. From this relationship, I began to explore my mind and remember how love first found me. From there, this book was born. In no way am I professing to be an authority on love or relationships. I have no degrees or licenses which can validate it. I am only sharing my most intimate experiences—allowing you to be there and hopefully feel what I felt and see through my eyes, my life as it existed in those moments. To say that I'm a hopeless romantic is a very accurate description of a huge part of me. I believe in the truth of love, because love is responsible for our very existence. If not for our father in heaven, non of us would exit. My hope is that, you will be inspired by my story and that you will avoid many of the situations I encountered by cherishing yourself and the essence of love. If you do this, then I will have accomplished my goal. May love live on in you.
