Contents Introduction : living the gap -- A bi jurisprudence -- Sexual orientation -- Gender -- Race -- Disability -- Bipolar injustice : the moral code -- Invisible hybrids under the U.S. census.
Summary The United States, and the West in general, has always organized society along bipolar lines. We are either gay or straight, male or female, white or not, disabled or not. In recent years, however, America seems increasingly aware of those who defy such easy categorization. Yet, rather than being welcomed for the challenges that they offer, people living the gap are often ostracized by all the communities to which they might belong. Bisexuals, for instance, are often blamed for spreading AIDS to the heterosexual community and are regarded with suspicion by gays and lesbians. Interracial couple.
