Sons of the Movement

FtMs Risking Incoherence on a Post-Queer Cultural Landscape

By Jean Bobby Noble

Description

Sons of the Movement documents the female-to-male (FtM) transition process from an insider's point of view, and details the limitations of both surgical procedures and pronouns. Bobby Noble challenges both the expectations of masculinity and white masculinity. As a result, this text is equally invested in creating both gender trouble and race trouble, calling for a new provocative analysis of the field of gender studies.

This is an accessible treatise arguing that the relation among FtM transsexual masculinity, female masculinity, and feminism is an underexplored site of politics in the field. While FtM transsexuals have been viewed with some suspicion within feminist and lesbian circles, Sons of the Movement argues that since FtMs have the potential to offer a unique vantage point on both feminism and masculinity, FtM masculinity instead should be rearticulated as an alterantive and pro-feminist embodiment of non-phallic masculinity.
