In the late 1960s, two sociologists, John Gagnon and William Simon, developed the concept of sexual scripts as part of a larger project of treating sexuality like any other social phenomenon. In the end, their vision of social construction turned Kinsey on his head, and their model became the dominant paradigm of social science inquiry into human sexuality, and spurred the development of an entire field of Sexuality Studies. Sexual activity, they argued, was like other social processes, yet one of increasing importance in the construction of the self. Michael Kimmel has gathered together essays from three generations of scholars influenced by this perspective on sexuality. These include many of the foremost social scientists writing and researching sexuality today. The book begins with Kimmel's reflections on the unusual careers of Gagnon and Simon, examines the construction of both sexual identity and sexual behaviors in a variety of settings, and ends with the two of them speaking in their own provocative voices about their perspective in interviews conducted originally for a German journal in 1998.
This engagingly written book describes experiences of microaggressions, or subtle forms of discrimination, toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Nadal provides an overview of the current research literature on microaggressions and their impact on physical and mental health, and reviews discrimination towards LGBT individuals throughout history. He also examines how microaggressions may manifest in families, the workplace, health care environments, the media, school systems, and society at large. Ideal for gender studies courses, this book is replete with real life case examples and questions to foster discussion. It offers practical guidance on how to identify and deal with microaggressions as they occur, as well as implications for policy and clinical practice.
