Part I of this Review will briefly assess the principal arguments in Colker's book. In Part II, Colker's book will be situated within the larger currents of the discussion concerning bisexuality and the arguments for a bisexual jurisprudence. Part III critiques Colker's concept of a bisexual jurisprudence as applied to sexual hybrids from the standpoint of an identity, as well as a legal, skeptic. Part IV will sketch out some important implications for the advancement of a bisexual jurisprudence as well as question the need for a bisexual jurisprudence. This review concludes that the addition of a bisexual jurisprudence, like the one Colker has fashioned in her book, is neither transformative nor liberating for individuals with varied identities. Instead, the idea of a pansensual jurisprudence that seeks to deconstruct existing identity categories, as opposed to adding new categories, is a more radical and potentially transformative vision of our current legal and social system.
