"Activist-academic Meg John Barker and cartoonist Julia Scheele illuminate the histories of queer thought and LGBTQ+ action in this groundbreaking non-fiction graphic novel. A kaleidoscope of characters from the diverse worlds of pop-culture, film, activism and academia guide us on a journey through the ideas, people and events that have shaped queer "theory". From identity politics and gender roles to privilege and exclusion, Queer explores how we came to view sex, gender and sexuality in the ways that we do; how these ideas get tangled up with our culture and our understanding of biology, psychology and sexology; and how these views have been disputed and challenged. Along the way we look at key landmarks which shift our perspective of what's "normal", such as Alfred Kinsey's view of sexuality as a spectrum between heterosexuality and homosexuality, Judith Butler's view of gendered behavior as a performance, the play Wicked, which reinterprets characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, or moments in Casino Royale when we're invited to view James Bond with the kind of desiring gaze usually directed at female bodies in mainstream media,"--Amazon.com.Though not a graphic novel, this high illustrated nonfiction book explores how we came to view sex, gender and sexuality in the ways that we do. Barker and Scheele show how these ideas get tangled up with our culture and our understanding of biology, psychology and sexology; and how these views have been disputed and challenged.

An oversimplification of queer theory and often conflates ideas or states things that are entirely incorrect. The art is cool though. ( )

I like that theory exists, but generally I don't want anything to do with it. As a research scientist I was firmly an experimentalist. And in general I am more of an action-oriented person than a pure-thought person (while I also appreciate that the people who do favor theory have bridged the gap to get me to where I am able to take action on things).

There were some interesting nuggets in this book, and it definitely helped me to appreciate theory maybe a tiny bit more by giving it illustrations, but otherwise I was just kind of bored by the whole thing.

Also, due to my lack of theoretical knowledge in queer / gender theory, I lack the ability to critique this book on a higher level, as other commenters have done. I will admit that there probably are large flaws in this book that I am unable to detect, so I will leave that as a warning to others who, like me, don't know Sartre from Nietzsche. ( )

A good introduction and overview of queer theory. ( )
  zacchaeus | Dec 26, 2020 |
The title is a bit misleading: it really should be subtitled a history of theory, for this is what it is. It is a bit jargony for casual readers, but it does a great job breaking down the complex terms and inter-related academic fields. A must-read if you need a crash course in queer theory. I would have benefitted from this in my theory class. ( )

Probably more accurate to be called "Queer Theory: A Graphic History" - in just knowing the title I wasn't sure what to expect but it's an overview of the main theories and theorists that fall under the umbrella of queer theory.
A nice overview for me, as someone who hasn't read a thing about academic queer theory. Though sometimes I would think, I definitely understand this concept, and then close the book and be totally unable to explain it to someone else, that's mostly how I deal with academic concepts in general. I liked the style of this book, and the illustrations were great. Here's my favourite one:



I also liked this one just for the fun juxtaposition of nihilism with the happy talking head:



At the end there's a nice section on how to incorporate queer theory into your everyday life, which is hard to imagine considering how dense and academic a lot of it is; but I think what they've suggested is a nice broad idea for critical thinking in general:

"Try to avoid polarizing into either/or binaries: male/female and straight/gay, but also, beyond that, (sex) positive/negative, good/bad, real/fake, essential/constructed, healthy/harmful, transgressive/conforming, assimilationist/liberatory, reformist/radical...
Instead ask what an idea or representation opens up and closes down. What is included and what is excluded? Might it be a matter of both/and rather than either/or?"

I've been reading this at the same time as [b:Testosterone Rex: Myths of Sex, Science, and Society|30231724|Testosterone Rex Myths of Sex, Science, and Society|Cordelia Fine|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1466695471s/30231724.jpg|50692501] which dovetailed pretty nicely in terms of muddling gender and sex binaries.
