What is heterosexuality? In recent years, scholars in all fields have spent so much time defining homosexuality, the nature of heterosexuality has gone unexplored. This collection of original essays will unravel the current heterosexual scene in two parts: one on rights and privileges, the other on popular culture. Topics covered include weddings, proms, citizenship, marriage penalties, cartoons, mermaids and myth. This imaginative work is an impressive addition to the growing field of critical heterosexual studies.
