Overview

Announcing the long-awaited memoir/exploration by internationally famed Ethical Slut author Janet W. Hardy: Girlfag: A Life Told in Sex and Musicals!

Girlfags - women who love, are attracted to, and identify with gay men - are a growing community with a growing voice. Girlfags are not fag hags - fag hags enjoy gay men as company; girlfags enjoy them as bedmates and peers. Girlfags are everywhere.

Janet notes, "I get much the same reaction when I mention 'girlfags' as I used to when I talked about 'ethical sluts' - a sudden lighting up of the eyes, a giggle, and a startled 'Hey, that's *me*!”' And Facebook groups, Yahoo groups, a Wikipedia entry, a Livejournal blog, and a television series called Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys offer signs that The Age of the Girlfag is at hand.

Janet's book Girlfag: A Life Told In Sex and Musicals is a memoir, and much more. It visits girlfags past and present (from Pharaoh Hatshepsut through Mary Renault), it meanders through the shifting meanings of gender and orientation, and it spends a whole lot of time at the theater (Janet is not just a girlfag, she's also a showtune queen).

Read an Excerpt

This is a book about dissolution, in all the senses of the word. Lawyers call a divorce a "dissolution,” and there's a divorce in here, although a rather anticlimactic one. And some people say you're "dissolute” if they think that you're morally not quite up to par, and, well, there's a lot of that in here too, mostly with me at its center.
But "dissolution” is the noun form of the verb "dissolve.” Moviemakers use a "dissolve” to transition from one scene to the next, so that they can jump all around their story, sometimes to things that seem irrelevant at the time but that start to make more sense as the movie progresses. And physicists mean "dissolve” to mean the softening of edges, the loss of boundaries, the point where the lump of sugar becomes smaller and smaller, and then the sugar is liquid, and then the water is sweet.
And that's really what this book is about: dissolving, dissolution, solution. Edges softening, edges disappearing, edges so far gone that you realize they never existed and that you're standing like Wile E Coyote in midair. Don't worry, you'll only fall if you think too much about how you got there in the first place.
