New book mentions asexuality

Hi everyone. I set up a Google alert for asexuality and today got a notification for the following book. The snippet that mentions asexuality (and there may be more) is

 

Typically, humans are classified as being one of two sexes, but the incidence of bodies being born that do not neatly fit one cat ... Homosexuality, heterosexuality, bisexuality, and asexuality are
all characterized by the sex or gender of the object(s) of an individual's desire, if any

 

Phenomenal Gender: What Transgender Experience Discloses

By Ephraim Das Janssen
Indiana University Press, 16 Jun 2017 - Philosophy - 170 pages

 

Just what is gender, and what can be expected of it when dealing with identity, justice, and equality? Ephraim Das Janssen uses a phenomenological approach to challenge and dismantle the way gender is currently understood. Janssen questions ideas that have formerly been taken for granted, as individuals did during the Civil Rights movement, the women’s movement, and the LGBT rights movement. In so doing he recasts the moral debate about gender and grounds his analysis in observable aspects such as clothing and social roles and how these can imply transgression and questioning. Janssen shakes the very core of gender through a deep engagement with Being and the structures that confine our contemporary notions.
