The author shares her story as a childfree-by-choice woman, and how she came to believe that "atypical chicks" are the ones who must be willing to create not just a new path to follow, but a paradigm shift to confront the need for a smaller population on earth and to ease the adaptation to our changing world by serving others. She long knew she was not like other women and not like men either. There is a middle space. Hybrids blend many male qualities with female. They could very well be the best of both worlds. Their hybrid nature often discourages motherhood and thereby allows the freedom to fully focus on serving the greater good. In the past, such people were marginalized, looked upon poorly by many. No more. Childfree women have a distinct and important role to fill in this over-populated 21st-century world. This is about a world in crisis from overpopulation, resource depletion, pollution and climate change and at the same time it is not about the many and rapidly expanding threats to our world. The details of those topics have been well covered in many peer-reviewed papers and authoritative books and are for this purpose best left to the experts and the many environmental advocates. This is about overpopulation and the many ramifications it is causing. The evidence of the population crisis is unmistakable. In one lifetime, planet earth has gone from 3 billion people to more than 7 billion and headed to 9 or 10 billion. Humans are overwhelming the life support systems on the planet. Our pollution is killing the oxygen-producing phytoplankton and forests. We are overharvesting fish and shellfish stocks, depleting our soils and groundwater reserves and increasingly dependent on a small handful of corporations for our seed and pharmaceutical needs. We must change or suffer unspeakable consequences. Rhonny makes a call to fellow childfree hybrids to serve as role models, to speak and teach and light a new way on an overpopulated world.

Do the conventional insights of depth psychology have anything to offer the gay patient? Can contemporary psychoanalytic theory be used to make sense of gay identities in ways that are helpful rather than hurtful, respectful rather than retraumatizing? In Psychoanalytic Therapy and the Gay Man Jack Drescher addresses these very questions as he outlines a therapeutic approach to issues of sexual identity that is informed by traditional therapeutic goals (such as psychological integration and more authentic living) while still respecting, even honoring, variations in sexual orientation. Drescher's exploration of the subjectivities of gay men in psychoanalytic psychotherapy is more than a long-overdue corrective to the inadequate and often pathologizing tomes of traditional psychoanalytic writers. It is a vitally human testament to the richly varied inner experiences of gay men. Drescher does not assume that sexual orientation is the entire or even major focus of intensive psychotherapy. But he does argue, passionately and convincingly, that issues of sexual identity - which encompass a spectrum of possibilities for any gay man - must be addressed in an atmosphere of honest encounter that allows not only for exploration of conflict and dissociation but also for restitutive confirmation of the patient's right to be himself. Through its abundance of first-person testimony from both clinical and literary sources, Psychoanalytic Therapy and the Gay Man provides the reader with an unforgettable grasp of what it is like to discover that one is gay in our society and then to find the courage and humanity to live with that knowledge. Any mental health professional - regardless of his or her sexual orientation - who wishes to deal therapeutically with gay men will find Drescher's work indispensable. But it will also be compelling reading for anyone seeking psychological insight into gay men's lives and concerns.
