Part III: Deconstructing, Envisioning, and Making Practical Suggestions
The purpose of the final section of the book is to employ the preceding narrative-oriented chapters to explicitly deconstruct the professional discourse on sexual orientation and to make suggestions for navigating and creating positive change in this discourse. The task of writing these chapters was daunting because the authors wanted to do justice to the compelling work of the preceding chapter authors, who courageously and forthrightly shared their personal experiences. The authors of these last three chapters sought to integrate the narrative material in creative and useful ways that could facilitate insight into the current discourse on sexual orientation, as well as illuminate practical paths toward action in challenging heterosexism and working toward equity.
