Getting Past the Stereotypes: Women and Motorcycles in Recent Lesbian Novels

http://ijms.nova.edu/March2006/IJMS_Artcl.Boslaugh.html


Mainstream American popular culture presents a severely limited view of those who rides motorcycles, and how and why they ride. However, anyone willing to look outside the mainstream will be rewarded with a view of bikers and biking which is far more varied and interesting. The lesbian community includes many avid bikers, and they bring a point of view to motorcycling different from that which is commonly expected or represented. Several contemporary lesbian novelists have incorporated motorcycling in their work, and in so doing have both embraced and critiqued the mainstream image of the biker and the road trip genre.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

joking or not.

You took a sterotype and made a blanket statement about all people. I'm just glad there are no negros on CLSB, so I can make fun of blacks all I want... this is ridiculous. Why was this brought up again?
