IS LAW TOO SEXY?

Modern Believing (2017), 58, (4), 361–372.

Abstract

This article considers the definition of sex in English law. It argues that the current position is deeply flawed and reflects a heterosexist binary model of sex. With a particular focus on intersex people and theological writings on sexuality, it argues for the abolition of sex as a legal category. This opens up exciting new ways of thinking about, for example, marriage, as a relationship based around care, rather than sex.
