Becoming fertile in the land of organic milk: Lesbian and queer reproductions of femininity and motherhood in Sweden

2018 (English)In: Sexualities, ISSN 1363-4607, E-ISSN 1461-7382, Vol. 21, no 7, p. 1021-1038Article 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.
