Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others
Jonathan Alexander, Karen Yescavage
Psychology Press, 2003 - Psychology - 298 pages
Explore the common ground—and the important differences—between bisexuality and transgenderism!
This book, guaranteed to provoke debate and discussion of sexuality and gender, is the first devoted exclusively to the relationship between transgenderism and bisexuality. Combining the work of scholars and activists, professional writers and lay people, Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others proesents ideas, thoughts, feelings, and insights from a variety of contributors who are committed to understanding—and deepening our understanding of—gender and sexuality. You’ll find scholarly essays, narratives, poetry, and a revealing interview with four male-to-female transsexuals, two of whom are married to women who also participate in the discussion. In addition, the book includes insightful chapters by well-known advocates of transgenderism, including Jamison “James” Green, Coralee Drechsler, and Matthew Kailey.
The editors of Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others make the provocative but crucial claim that the larger queer community looks at “B” and “T” lives as mere “add-ons” to “L” and “G.” In this book they focus attention on bisexuality and transgenderism—moving the “margins” to center stage and exploring how sexuality, gender, desire, and intimacy are constructed and circulate in our society. The book’s inclusion of voices and scholarship from Eastern cultures challenges our understanding of sexuality and gender constructions all the more, giving this collection a global scope.
Here is a sample of what Bisexuality and Transgenderism: InterSEXions of the Others examines:

I'm curious, what solid proof do you have to support your position that Angelina Jolie's character "Sway" in Gone in 60 Seconds is actually bisexual? She is a beautiful, feminine-butch mechanic, but there is no other indication to say that she is bisexual. That is speculation based on her profession. I am a model and a mechanic as well, obviously meaning I am a well-kept female that isn't afraid to work on cars either, but I am not a bisexual female. I too enjoy knives, video games, and other activities that men are primarily known for, but I am in no way bisexual. I have been happily married (to a man) for many years, and am rather offended by your inference about "Sway", purely based on the stereotype that a female must be bisexual or a lesbian if she engages in any activity that is men-ruled. Now I have not fully read your book, and the rest doesn't concern me, I am just defending that one section that refers to female mechanics. If anything, I would like to see some solid evidence. Did you talk with the directors and have them tell your first hand that "Sway" is indeed bisexual? Have you interviewed more female beautiful, feminine mechanics and have them tell you ALL girls that work on cars bat for the other team? I would love to hear all of this. Otherwise, you don't have a valid argument in this department.
