Becoming fertile in the land of organic milk: Lesbian and queer reproductions of femininity and motherhood in Sweden
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Centre for Gender Research.
2017 (English)In: Sexualities, ISSN 1363-4607, E-ISSN 1461-7382Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

 This article draws on popular culture, ethnographic materials and mainstream commercials

to discuss contemporary understandings of the relationship between fertility, pregnancy

and parenthood among lesbians and other queer persons with uteruses. It argues

that, on the one hand, same-sex lesbian motherhood is increasingly celebrated as evidence

of Swedish gender and sexual exceptionalism and, on the other, queers who wish

to challenge heteronormative gender disavow both the relationship between fertility

and femininity, and that of pregnancy and parenthood. The author argues that in studying

queer family formation, we must move beyond addressing heteronormativity and

begin studying how gender, sexuality, race and class get reproduced in queer kinship

stories.
