  2. Hello Shriri Eisner! My teaching assistant from women’s studies, Greg, has sent me to your website for many ressources on the topic of biphobia within queer communities. I’ve already seen many things here that will be of great use! I won’t be writing this work after your book release but this is really great. Thank you!

    • Thanks! Happy to be of assistance :)

      Make you spell my name right, though – my name is Shiri (which translates in Hebrew to “my song” or “my poem”). Shriri in Hebrew, however, means muscular ;)

  3. Shiri, I’ve just come across your book and resultantly your blog. I’ve just started blogging myself and becoming more active in the bisexual community. Frustrated with male bisexual invisibility to the point of bumping up against the ceiling. I hope you might, when you have a chance, peruse my blog – it’s a combination of cultural and political commentary and I don’t push content out nearly as much as I’d like (working on that), be curious to know what you think and very much looking forward to reading your book.
    ps – I don’t know if you followed the Matthew Shepherd case (it did receive quite a bit of coverage internationally) but a new controversial book is set to come out that suggest there was a bisexual angle combined with drugs that was really behind the crime. Just what we need more bisexual shaming. Ugh.

  5. HI Shiri. I read your book a couple of months ago and enjoyed it.
    What do you think the relationship is (if any) between “the male gaze” as you put it and
    ‘phallocentrism”. I have this gut feeling it is 2 unhealthy malignant sides of the same coin but just not clear in my mind how-why this is so. Any thoughts? Thanks. Keep up the good work.
