Look Both Ways: Bisexual Politics

A book by Jennifer Baumgardner

< read all 1 reviews

The best book on bisexuality I've read in a long time

By far the most interesting, most readable and most satisfying exploration of bisexuality I've read, and perhaps the most interesting book on the intersection of bisexuality and feminism ever written.

Baumgardner is young, and of a different generation, but her thoughts and experiences are completely in line with my own, and, therefore,  I embrace them as brilliantly insightful.

The connections she draws between bisexuality and feminism are fascinating, though she gives short shrift to male bisexuality. That said, her insights are seminal (pardon) and her weaving of personal anecdote with a more global and maturing political awareness is well worth reading.

This book belongs on the bookshelf of every one interested in human sexuality, and especially those active in the Queer community.

A remarkable book.
