Not really what I expected from such an influential writer. As a book intended to promote gender rights I found it very excluding as a non-LGBTQ reader. "But we are excluded from all straight theory" would be a response that endorses the exclusion. With, IMHO, an over-emphasis on (post-) psychoanalytic theory, the message is lost in the minutae. An anticlimax.
