Title Details
Ties That Bind by Schulman, Sarah
Ties That Bind: Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences
by Schulman, Sarah
 
“Familial homophobia,” as prizewinning writer and professor Sarah Schulman calls it, is a phenomenon that, until now, has not had a name but is nevertheless an integral part of most people’s experience. For it is in the family that straight people and queer people first learn about homophobia, which has lasting consequences for their future relationships and sense of self.

In the same way that Susan Brownmiller’s Against Our Will transformed our understanding of rape by moving the stigma from the victim to the perpetrator, Schulman’s Ties That Bind invites us to understand familial homophobia as a cultural crisis, not a personal or individual problem. She offers us the opportunity to intervene with violating families, community, and the state.

Ambitious, original, and deeply important, Schulman’s book draws on her own lived experience, her research, and her engagement with active social change to articulate a practical, attainable vision of transformation that can begin today. The paperback edition of Ties That Bind will become a fundamental text that alters our understanding of homophobia and adds a critical dimension to the political landscape of all Americans.
