    Not completely practical, but nevertheless highly influential

    There are serious limits to Butler's philosophical framework here, most notably in the degree to which she seems to assume that we can deliberately produce gender trouble in order to subvert normative sociopolitical practices, and in her assumption that identity politics within feminist movement can serve no further political purpose. Nevertheless, the text remains highly influential within academia for its deconstruction of our notions of sex/gender/desire and for its singlehanded founding of what would become queer studies. However, one must keep in mind that there are critical corrections Butler herself makes in her later work to some of the rhetorcial strategies she employs here.

    break the boundaries and read this!

    Everyone should read this book,because it helps break down the social roles we are all faced with into what they really MEAN in our lives and how they retrict us to one behavior or another according to gender.
