Straight: The Surprisingly Short History Of HeterosexualityStraight: The Surprisingly Short History Of Heterosexuality by Hanne Blank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this book fascinating, and eye-opening.  The author starts from a unique perspective: her partner is intersex (XXY) and appears androgynous.  Is her partner male, female, or both?  Is the author heterosexual or homosexual? Blank challenges the reader to re-examine his/her/hir attitudes about sexuality and how it's defined, and how we are shaped by cultural and sexual "doxa".
