Gays/justice: A Study of Ethics, Society, and Law
Society at large does not know what to think about gays. Social taboos on discussing sexuality, especially gay sexuality, have left a void in society's understanding of gays. This void, though, has been filled to overflowing with stereotypes, prejudices, and unexamined fears, which in concert have largely governed the development of social policy towards gays. This book aims to inform the general audience of gay experience.
