After Queer Theory makes the provocative declare that queer idea has run its path, made out of date by way of the elaboration of its personal good judgment inside of capitalism. James Penney argues that faraway from signalling the top of anti-homophobic feedback, besides the fact that, the top of queer offers the social gathering to reconsider the relation among sexuality and politics.

Through a serious go back to Marxism and psychoanalysis (Freud and Lacan), Penney insists that how to implant sexuality within the box of political antagonism is mockingly to desert the exhausted premise of a politicised sexuality.

After Queer Theory argues that it's important to wrest sexuality from the lifeless finish of identification politics, starting it as much as a common emancipatory fight past the succeed in of capitalism's powers of commodification.
