Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Explore the common ground—and the important differences—between bisexuality and transgenderism!

This book, guaranteed to provoke debate and discussion of sexuality and gender, is the first devoted exclusively to the relationship between transgenderism and bisexuality. Combining the work of scholars and activists, professional writers and lay people, Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others proesents ideas, thoughts, feelings, and insights from a variety of contributors who are committed to understanding—and deepening our understanding of—gender and sexuality. You’ll find scholarly essays, narratives, poetry, and a revealing interview with four male-to-female transsexuals, two of whom are married to women who also participate in the discussion. In addition, the book includes insightful chapters by well-known advocates of transgenderism, including Jamison “James” Green, Coralee Drechsler, and Matthew Kailey.

The editors of Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others make the provocative but crucial claim that the larger queer community looks at “B” and “T” lives as mere “add-ons” to “L” and “G.” In this book they focus attention on bisexuality and transgenderism—moving the “margins” to center stage and exploring how sexuality, gender, desire, and intimacy are constructed and circulate in our society. The book’s inclusion of voices and scholarship from Eastern cultures challenges our understanding of sexuality and gender constructions all the more, giving this collection a global scope.

Here is a sample of what Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others examines:
  • biphobia and transphobia within the United States’ gay and lesbian community
  • the bi/trans and subversive aspects of the works and images of cultural icons Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bernhardt
  • how bisexual and transgendered identities are socially constructed through relationships
  • the false promise of pomosexual play—why the concepts of postmodern sexuality fail to rewrite the construction of gender
  • why swingers who practice bisexual and transgender behavior are often disdained and marginalized by other GLBT people
  • suicidal thoughts and other mental health concerns of bisexual males and females, as well as transgender people
  • Eastern perspectives on sexual/gender identities—with revealing chapters on gender identity in Japan and Indonesia
