Jill St. Jacques analyses the depiction of sexually ambiguous characters in works of adaptations. Because the clinical and critical misuse of the term ‘sexual ambiguity’ has been so striking since the 1950s, his project necessitates a conceptual reorientation of the concept away from its function as a defining characteristic for the sexual anatomy of human bodies, as that usage is both highly subjective and potentially damaging.
