Über diesen Titel


Examines the moral dilemmas facing the gay community, presenting an ethical argument for outing, a critique of ACT UP, and a discussion of such issues as homophobia, repression, and democracy

From Library Journal:

Mohr (philosophy, Univ. of Illinois-Urbana) has a talent for turning an argument on its head just to see it topple. In this collection of essays on some of the more controversial topics in gay studies, sometimes the argument topples and sometimes it just wobbles a bit. On the future of civil rights laws, Mohr deftly examines the Supreme Court's apparent decision to drop the right to privacy as a Constitutional principle as expressed in the Bowers v. Hardwick case. However, in arguing against the notion of the social construction of homosexuality, Mohr confuses the biological condition of homosexuality with the issue of gay identity and culture. The concept of "outing" closeted gay celebrities and politicians takes on the nobility of a moral crusade despite an unnecessarily complex argument. This book has stirred controversy even before its publication; as reported in the press, it was turned down by nine publishers and 23 printers. Most of the controversy surrounds Mohr's use of explicit, homoerotic illustrations to support the thesis that homosexuality offers society an ideal model for the principle of equality. Recommended for academic libraries or larger public libraries with informed lay readers.
