       Invisible Hybrids under the U.S. Census. 
520    The United States, and the West in general, have always 
       organized society along bipolar lines. We are either white
       or black, gay or straight, male or female, 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 they offer, 
       people "living the gap" are often stigmatized by all the 
       communities to which they might belong. These hybrids 
       befuddle courts because existing classifications do not 
       fit them. Ruth Colker here argues that our bipolar 
       classification system obscures a genuine understanding of 
       the very nature of subordination. By rejecting 
       conventional bipolar categories, we can broaden our 
       understanding of sexuality, gender race, and disability. 
       Acknowledging that categorization is crucial and 
       unavoidable in a world of practical problems and day-to-
       day conflicts, Colker shows how categories can and must be
       improved, for the good of all.
