Feminism, the Public and the Private

By Joan B. Landes | Go to book overview

Notes
1.
Throughout this paper we have used terms such as 'lipstick lesbian', and 'gay skinhead', and 'heterosexual'. However we recognize that these identities are not uniform. Similarly, for the purposes of this paper only we have felt it necessary to adopt the false dichotomy of heterosexual/homosexual.
2.
The labels are important: Ben Sherman, Fred Perry, Doctor Marten, Levi--even skinheads outside the UK (such as those in the USA, as part of the 'Queercore' scene) fetishize the same brands of clothes.
3.
In December 1990 16 gay men were given prison sentences or fined for engaging in consensual sado-masochistic (SM) sex acts. This followed a police investigation, code-named Operation Spanner, prompted by the chance finding of a videotape of SM activities. A campaign, Countdown on Spanner, mobilised SMers of all sexualities to protest, the biggest single event being an 'SM Pride' march in 1992. The men had their convictions upheld by the Court of Appeal and the Law Lords, and are now taking the matter to the European Court of Human Rights (for details, see Bell, 1993).
4.
Russell Square is a leafy square and the gay cruising area in Bloomsbury, central London. The Countdown on Spanner march passed through this square en route to the adjacent University of London Union. The town of Rostock in the new German 'Land' of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern was the site of prolonged violent far-right attacks on hostels housing immigrants during 1992.
