(Seal Press, release date May 17th, 2022) examines the mindsets that shape how we perceive and interpret sex, gender, and sexuality. A central focus is on Sexed Up: How Society Sexualizes Us, and How We Can Fight Back sexualization: when we nonconsensually reduce people to their real or imagined sexual attributes (their bodies, behaviors, desires) to the exclusion of other characteristics. I detail how sexualization plagues not just women, but all marginalized groups, and stems largely from the stigma we associate with sex itself. I also share strategies to overcome this sex-related stigma — strategies designed to foster sexual equity without sacrificing sexual diversity in the process.
(Seal Press, 2013; finalist for the Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive Publishing Triangle’s Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Nonfiction) offers vital new insights into how prejudice works and how to improve activism, addressing topics such as intersectionality, call-out culture, Nature-versus-Nurture debates, how to be an ethically gendered and sexual being, embracing heterogeneity and ambivalence, and more! Click the link for more details, reviews, interviews, and excerpts from the book, plus where to purchase it. Excluded was recently included on several best books of the 2010s lists.
