Question of the Week:
Question: I live with my mother. I'm 21, I work at a Dry cleaners and do a lot of baby sitting during week nights and weekends. I love baby setting. My question is: When my mother is called out of town for work, or for that matter when she goes out with her girl friends on Friday or Saturday nights, I rush to her bedroom and watch as she leaves. Knowing she's gone, I get this rush. Before I know it, I've got a pair of her panties, panty hose, full slip and one of her dresses plus a pair of her heels on. It seems like I got to do this. It seems as though it's a relief. When she goes out of town I apply make up. It seems like a feminine side comes out of me. Again, my question is. Am I alright? (from Ricky, Boston area)

Siobhan Somerville, author of "Queering the Color Line: Race and the Invention of Homosexuality in American Culture". Siobhan is a Professor of English and Women's Studies at Purdue University where she teaches queer studies, theories of race, American literature, feminist theory, and film. We talked with Siobhan about how race and homosexuality have been historically linked, and how the sexological division of people into homosexuals and heterosexuals was shaped by the discourse of scientific racism.
