So. I get heckin' tired of the ubiquity of hetero-normative and binary assumptions of the culture at large and amongst my friends. Yet LGBTQIA etc. gets to feel like reciting pi. This book wasn't what I thought it was. I expected a graphic exploration of queer experience: it turned out to be an illustrated, text-heavy summary of queer theory. Very academic. Much went over my head as I was reading more quickly than I'd have liked (Overdrive book).
