In 2004, in his field-defining book No Future, Lee Edelman stressed a particularly transgressive aspect of “queerness”: “queerness names the side of those not ‘fighting for the children,’ the side outside the consensus by which all politics confirms the absolute value of reproductive futurism.” In 2022, with the over-turning of Roe v. Wade in the United States, Edelman’s insistence on the political breach represented by non-reproductive sexuality seems all the more significant, as the biopolitical project of imposing futurity on sex and particularly on women becomes ever more prominent.
