"Written by cutting-edge sex researcher J. Michael Bailey, The Man Who Would Be Queen is a frankly controversial, intensely poignant, and boldly forthright book about sex and gender. Based on his original research, Bailey's book is grounded firmly in the scientific method. But as he demonstrates, science doesn't always deliver predictable or even comfortable answers. Indeed, much of what he has to say will be sure to generate as many questions as answers." "Are gay men genuinely more feminine than other men? And do they really prefer to be florists and hairdressers rather than lumberjacks? Are all male transsexuals women trapped in men's bodies - or are some of them men who are just plain turned on by the idea of becoming a woman? And how much of a role do biology and genetics play in sexual orientation?". "While Bailey's science is provocative, it is the portraits of the boys and men who struggle with these questions - often with anger, fear, and hurt feelings - that will move you. Their stories make it clear that there are men - and men who become women - who want only to understand themselves and the society that makes them feel like outsiders; that there are parents, friends, and families that seek answers to confusing and complicated questions; and that there are dedicated and compassionate scientists who hope one day to grasp the very nature of human sexuality."--BOOK JACKET.
