Gender and Migration (The International Library of Studies on Migration, 10)
This volume demonstrates the ways in which a gender perspective has been incorporated into existing themes and methods of migration research and has also led to the development of new areas of interest. It draws together the most important published articles on gender and migration in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia in order to highlight major theoretical developments relating to employment, gender relations, household organization, identity, citizenship, transnationalism and migration policy. In the introduction the editors provide an overview of these key developments in gender and migration research, as well as suggesting topics for future research. “Gender and Migration” should be a useful resource for demographers, geographers and gender studies researchers.

sexysupacat | Gay Asian Boy Dances Dancehall
The Saga continues of the Asian Boy who stands up to the music that he loves, but this is a Paradox, because Dancehall music involves hate toward Gay people, sometimes even talking about burning them or killing them.I can never go to a country so hateful, and yet I love the sound of their music. I know that there are many Gay men in Jamaica, and I feel for them, because they have to live in secrecy. This is why I want to be there and stand up for something worth while. Maybe I can inspire someone else. The statistics of Aid and HIV infected people are out of control high right now in Jamaica, and the wives and children are sure as hell not giving it to the men. It is illegal to be gay, and there are some people who feer their own lives. This is why they secretly hook up, and bring it back to families. The sad part of it is that the woman and children are suffering for mans negligence to be honest as a man, whether your straight or gay, it dont matter, a man is man when he is honest to himself and others.

I love Dancehall,,,,,,I am a proud Bati Bwoy, and Chi Chi man. And the collective community of Gay is everywhere. You cannot escape it, so just stop hating and treat us with respect. We aint trying to hurt nobody. So that is why I want to dance like a Dancehall Queen, cuz I aint scared and so I can ruffle some feathers and making people think about how Homophobia is causing AIDS all over the world, but especially Jamaica, please lets start creating an understanding enviroment worldwide so undercover gays dont hook up secretly and unsafely bring back diseases to their wives and families.

The Mismeasure of Desire: The Science, Theory, and Ethics of Sexual Orientation (Ideologies of Desire)
In the last decade, fierce controversy has arisen over the nature of sexual orientation. Scientific research, religious views, increasingly ambiguous gender roles, and the growing visibility of sexual minorities have sparked impassioned arguments about whether our sexual desires are hard-wired in our genes or shaped by the changing forces of society.
In recent years scientific research and popular opinion have favored the idea that sexual orientations are determined at birth, but philosopher and educator Edward Stein argues that much of what we think we know about the origins of sexual desire is probably wrong. Stein provides a comprehensive overview of such research on sexual orientation and shows that it is deeply flawed. Stein argues that this research assumes a picture of sexual desire that reflects unquestioned cultural stereotypes rather than cross-cultural scientific facts, and that it suffers from serious methodological problems. He considers whether sexual orientation is even amenable to empirical study and asks if it is useful for our understanding of human nature to categorize people based on their sexual desires. Perhaps most importantly, Stein examines some of the ethical issues surrounding such research, including gay and lesbian civil rights and the implications of parents trying to select or change the sexual orientation of their children.
The Mismeasure of Desire offers a reasoned, accessible, and incisive examination of contemporary thinking about one of the most hotly debated issues of our time and adds a compelling voice of dissent to prevailing–and largely unexamined–assumptions about human sexuality.

Is there a “gay gene”? What if there is? And what does “gay” mean, anyway? Philosopher and queer studies instructor Edward Stein asks these questions and far more, delving deeply into our feelings about gender and sexuality in The Mismeasure of Desire, a deep but accessible examination of how we classify and study sexual orientation. Stein is that rare postmodern philosopher who explains his terms simply and strives for clarity in thought and prose; readers scared off by his background in the humanities will find his book as sensible as any science text. He divides his subjects into sections on metaphysics, science, and ethics, each building on the last.
First turning his attention to the construction of gender and desire, Stein takes great pains to define his terms so that they satisfy our intuitions yet maintain the rigor required of them by his philosophical operations. This territory has been explored fairly well over the last 30 years, but he finds new paths well worth further pursuit. Next he examines the social and biological research pertaining to sexual orientation; not surprisingly, he finds much fault therein, as much (if not all) of it rests on thoroughly disreputable and homophobic foundations. These assumptions are brought out of the closet and don’t stand up well to scrutiny, lending power to Stein’s concluding ethical arguments that we should at the very least demand more of researchers looking into sexual orientation, and perhaps curtail such research altogether. The powerful, heady ideas in The Mismeasure of Desire will keep you thinking for years to come. –Rob Lightner
