Gaga Feminism: Sex, Gender, and the End of Normal J. Jack Halberstam

Gaga Feminism provides a roadmap to sex and gender for the twenty-first century, using Lady Gaga as a symbol for a new kind of feminism. Judith "Jack" Halberstam, a well known academic in queer theory, gender, and cultural studies, makes sense of the tectonic cultural shifts that have transformed gender and sexual politics in the last few decades. This colorful landscape is populated by symbols and phenomena as varied as pregnant men, late life lesbians, Spongebob Squarepants and queer families.
