Intimate Partner Violence outside the Binary

Intimate Partner Violence outside the Binary

(p.1) 1 Intimate Partner Violence outside the Binary

Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz

NYU Press

The introductory chapter situates the discussion of intimate partner violence within its current rigidly gendered framework. The chapter introduces the reader to the historical backdrop of how we have come to acknowledge IPV as a social problem and how dominant forms of thinking within the genderist and heteronormative frameworks have marginalized those who exist outside the gender binary. This chapter presents a theoretical overview of the state of IPV in the United States and introduces the key concepts of the gender binary, heteronormativity, genderism, and transphobia as they relate to understanding the survivors’ stories. Finally, the first chapter introduces the study that the book is based on and provides a summary of the study design and a table of participants.
