Feminism, Manhood & Homosexuality: Intersections in Psychoanalys;2003, p150
The conclusion to the book "Feminism, Manhood and Homosexuality: Intersections in Psychoanalysis and American Poetry" is presented. It looks at issues surrounding feminist and gay and lesbian studies. Although it is recognized that scholars in the fields of women's, men's, gender, gay and lesbian, and queer studies can and should contribute to each others' scholarly endeavors, the relationships among these various disciplines remain complex. One such argument is that because feminism is the theory of gender oppression, it cannot account for the oppression of homosexuality and other sexual minorities. Despite differing opinions, several feminist principles have affected and continue to affect lesbian, gay, queer, and men's studies.
