Abstract:

This is a holistic study of the intersecting and overlapping discourses that shape transgender identities. The author offers an examination of mediated and experienced transmasculine subjectivities and aims to capture the apparent contradictions that structure transmasculine experience, perception, and identification. From the relationship between transmasculinity's emancipatory potential and its simultaneously homogenizing implications, to issues of gender-queerness, sexual minorities, normativity, and fatherhood, this book synthesizes these disparate areas of academic study in the context of digital constructions of the transmasculine self.--
