This book is about more than just homophobia. It addressed heterosexism, bisexism, gender stereotypes, homosexual parenting, suicide of homosexuals, heterosexual marriage of gays and lesbians, lesbian baiting, censorship, AIDS and breaking free of homophobia.
I have learned a lot from this book and thought of things from a perspective I might not have thought about had I not read this book. For example, at the end of Chapter 12, there is a Heterosexual Questionnaire by Martin Rochlin, Ph.D. It is designed to be full of questions that homophobes ask homosexuals. Seeing it the other way around just proves how silly the questions gays are asked really are.
For example, "What do you think caused your heterosexuality?" or "Is it possible that your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of members of the same sex?" or "The great majority of child molesters (95%) are heterosexuals. Do you really consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers?" That last questions contains a very true fact often conveniently 'forgotten' or more accurately, 'ignored' when accusing homosexuals of constantly molesting children. It simply isn't true.
Chapter 17 is by far my favourite chapter. In it, the author talks about Nadles, Berdaches and Winktes. These are homosexuals of the Navajos, American Indian and Lakota people respectively.
In these cultures, men and women are considered equals and therefore, a feminine man is not lowering himself.Read more ›
