Why Sexual Diversity Politics Matters?
-Rights, equity
-Relationship between rights claims around gender
-About social relations
-Politics is not just about laws; about broader social relationships and social equity
-Has specific political relevance because what policies include and exclude affects how
people see the “other”
-Jeffrey Weeks- sexuality is intimately linked to moral and social anxiety and has been
for at least a century
-The most acute moral anxieties are about sexual roles and gender roles; tied to
conceptions of the normal/abnormal
-Sexuality being a trigger for debates over morality, normalcy, social stability, family, etc.
-The fact that steps have been taken to sympathize with moral conservatives (Can fed
gov!t), this suggests that sexuality is still important
-In other parts of the world, many of these issues have only begun to be asked about
Analytical Basics
"Identity Politics
-“Sexual identity development of a sense of self shaped by one!s pattern of sexual
attractions to other people
-Sexual identity also refers to the way you are seen by others
-Emergence of a variety of identity labels
-For some who identity themselves in one of these categories, they would see this as
political and act politically on that basis, others not
-People who don!t see the identity in political terms usually act political without being
conscious of it
-Having your identity shaped by your sexual practice is a modern idea
-The development of sexual identities was an inevitable product of modernity; others
argue that the emergence of these identities and a politics based on these identities
have as many negative aspects as the positive
-The debate about this reveals a growing divide between activists and academics;
trying to organize politically is hard to do without a core constituency
-Sometimes queer academics and writers are critical of mainstream organizations; a lot
of the criticism is based on the absence of activist experience and failure to recognize
the difficulty of working in these organizations
"Essentialism
-Clear division between male and female; creation of a category that there is a
universality of experience in M&F, homosexuality, lesbianism, transgender
-Assumes that everyone in each category has a similar experience
