Journeys of Gendered Adolescence
Chapter 4 conceptualizes sexual harm as peremption rather than predation. Correspondingly, the chapter substitutes our constellating characters of sexual harm and freedom--the child, the sex offender, and the homosexual--with the gendered adolescent, so we may perceive other impediments to flourishing. The first part develops a theory of peremption as the uncontrolled disqualification of possibility. The second part reimagines gendered adolescence as exemplary of sexuality through three twenty-first century U.S. films.
