The Last Sex
Feminism and Outlaw Bodies
The Last Sex looks at the future of gender in an age when the transgendered have emerged as a walking and breathing challenge to old sex definitions. Both the Krokers and the authors included (Kathy Acker, Shannon Bell, Stephen Pfohl) present rallying cries for what the Krokers call "transgenic gender," a new gender that lies beyond our current ideas of sexuality, one that exists outside the dualistic man/woman model.
-Richard Kadrey, Future Sex
The Last Sex is about body outlaws, operating in the interzone between the cold seduction of the hysterical male and the beginning of that new horizon called the LAST SEX. It broadens the survey of issues in gender politics to include a consideration of themes related to trans-gender and trans-sexuality, reflecting the major shift taking place both in feminist theory and in the style of feminist writing.
