Some of the essays' (Friction Burn, Who's that wavin' That Flag?, Undermining Gender Regulations, Different Types of Hunger; are the few I liked) in this book are little jewel's of information, empathy and wit and will make you see and reevaluate the view of homosexuality, heterosexuality, sex and race, you have about yourself and the people around you. I do think it helps you have a clearer; more open-mind view about the judgments we make on ourselves.
