Review:

""Thinking Straight is a valuable contribution to critical heterosexual studies, that difficult work of keeping different-sex sexualities in social and historical focus as it questions all those traditional assumptions about heterosexuality's natural, normal, universal, and eternal character." -Jonathan Ned Katz, author of "The Invention of Heterosexuality

Synopsis:

What is heterosexuality? In recent years, scholars in all fields have spent so much time defining homosexuality, that the nature of heterosexuality goes unexplored. In White Wedding , Chrys Ingraham began to ask the important questions about the nature of the institution--how was heterosexuality invented, naturalized, normalized, and institutionalized? These questions begin to define the field that Ingraham has dubbed 'Critical Heterosexual Studies'. In Thinking Straight , a collection of original essays will unravel the current heterosexual scene. The collection will be broken into three parts: one on power, one on paradox, and one on promise. Topics will include: cartoons and heterosexuality; weddings; proms; citizenship; marriage penalties; mermaids and myth.
