Gender isn't what it used to be. What was deviant for baby boomers has become mainstream for their offspring. Gender as we once understood it is over.
In End of Gender, Shari L. Thurer argues that we are in the midst of a new sexual revolution. One, she argues, where gender categories are blurring not just at the `fringes┐ of society, but in mainstream lifestyle, media, fashion, and art. So, why is this cultural phenomenon happening now? And what does it mean? Thurer explores topics such as:
* Psychoanalysis Meets Postmodern Sex
* Postmodernism For Those Who Missed It
* Men are from Earth, Women are from Earth, and so are Queers
In lively, non-technical language, and with sometimes surprising case studies from her twenty-five years as a psychologist, Thurer answers key gender questions, combining complex postmodern theory with cutting edge psychoanalysis.
