Wimmin, Wimps & Wallflowers

An Encyclopaedic Dictionary Of Gender And Sexual Orientation Bias In The United States

Book - 2001
Rate this:
This title takes on terms and expressions that malign gender or sexual orientation, or create controversy and confusion. Many of the words or expressions in this dictionary are recognizeable at once for their bias, others are words we often use without realizing their underlying meaning or without knowing how their meanings have been twisted to suit the purposes of those who demean others. The expressions shed light on how our lives are shaped by learned notions of gender and sexual orientation - in particular, how words are used to put some groups down and privilege others.
