It Ain’t Over: Marriage (in-)equality and queer assimilation— Barbara Baumgartner

$5.50

As the same-sex marriage debate pushes into the mainstream in Australia and the United States, the author asks us to deconstruct the institution of marriage and examine its classist, patriarchal and consumerism-driven motives which serve to add further privilege to an already privileged group, while obscuring the intersections of oppression experienced by the queer1 community. Is this community being assimilated into a mainstream or is the right to marry a needed step in the journey to equality? What do we in the community of narrative therapy need to consider in our work for social justice, and how do we ensure that the call for equal rights in all countries continues to be heard after Western governments endorse same-sex marriage rights?
