Example text

13, emphasis added) Although different scholars reached different conclusions, the new sexual science had radically changed the study of sexual practices and attitudes around the globe within only a few decades. Western European sexologists such as Krafft-Ebing in Austria, Ellis in England, and Hirschfeld in Germany garnered most of the initial international attention, but by the 1910s and 1920s East Asian scholars were playing a central role. Among the most prominent were Yamamoto Senji and Yasuda Tokutarô in Japan, and intellectuals of the May Fourth New Culture period (1915–37) in China, who translated sexology and sex educational texts from Europe, Japan, and the United States and introduced them to Chinese readers (Rocha 2010).

While early twentieth-century Japanese nation builders imagined their country to be racially (if not ethnically) homogeneous, a bloody civil war and contentious Reconstruction in the second half of the nineteenth century compounded by massive foreign migration in the late nineteenth and early 24 Sabine Frühstück twentieth centuries ensured that the United States would continue to be imagined in racial and ethnic terms. And those terms proved unimaginable without a strong sexual subtext, which tied nonnormative sexual identities to nonwhite populations or washed them out of the national narrative altogether (Somerville 2000).

Political mobilization, beginning with the 1976 Soweto uprising, brought some acceptance for skesana-identified boys and their female counterparts. Interviewed several years later, Linda remembered that: when the time came to go and march they wanted all the boys and girls to join in. ” But then they said they didn’t mind and we would go to march in drag. Even the straight boys would wear drag. You could wear what you liked. (McLean and Ngcobo 1995, p. 180) The timing was propitious for “gay” township participants because the Soweto uprising—initiated by black high-school students protesting the introduction of Afrikaans as a principal language of instruction—centered issues of black identity and resistance to reactionary state-imposed cultural symbols.
