Abstract:

30 pieces drawn from sources ranging from Girljock to the New York Times Magazine--addresses the question of why the sexuality of female athletes is always suspect. Hicks postulates that men use the label lesbian to "keep women in line," maintain economic inequities in sports, and license socially acceptable forms of sexual harrassment and homophobic attack. Other pieces explore the typing of children as tomboys and adults as dykes. Victoria Brownmiller in "The Competitive Closet" urges that "we regard the sexual orientation of athletes the way we do their color . . . because we are losing a lot of great athletes to prejudice and bigotry." Such argumentation occurs amid pieces that deal specifically with skaters, golfers, tennis players, martial artists, and jocks-of-all-sports as well as coaches and even groupies. Erotic fiction, cartoons, a quiz that lets you get in touch with your "inner athlete," explorations of childhood dreams, and a piece that takes us inside the heart of a "differently abled" jock who just wants to be "one of the girls" round things off.
