I found this book fascinating, and eye-opening. The author starts from a unique perspective: her partner is intersex (XXY) and appears androgynous. Is her partner male, female, or both? Is the author heterosexual or homosexual? Blank challenges the reader to re-examine his/her/hir attitudes about sexuality and how it's defined, and how we are shaped by cultural and sexual "doxa".
