    If you like to be yourself, read!

    This book is a collection of essays on the question implied in the book's title. None of the essays explicitly answer that question, however, which leaves the reader to answer that question for him/her/hir/er self. The range of voices is very broad, but also limited. None of the voices represent or desire conformity to the status quo of assimilationist thought. Which is not a bad thing, of itself, but it limits dialog. But then, the voices of conformity are all around us constantly, and the voices of the rebel all but silent. A weakness for many will be the lack of a unifying essay that ties all of the voices together into a chorus, a consensus. Personally, I didn't mind, but for many that's a deal breaker, as I like to think for myself. I would recommend this book for everyone who is involved in or wants to be involved in the Rights movement, since the small voices are the ones we are protecting, the powerful are what we need protection from. Oh, yes, my answer to the question of the title involves these words: Hate, Belonging, and Desire.
