台灣女同志運動雖然同時受到西方理論與中國思想文化的影響,但其性別認同與西方文化有著不同的發展。台灣同志文本中存在著兩種特殊的情境:私人(家庭關係)和公共(社會偏見)領域建構下所呈現的女同志認同衝突,以及女性浪漫情誼中含蓄特徵的存在。本書將藉由比較英國(西方)和台灣(中國)的女同志小說中找出幾種現象: 一. 中國文化中女性浪漫友誼常被視為女同志關係中長期的存在現象。二. 當代台灣同志議題中過度強調性方面的自主權現象。透過台灣女同性志文本的分析,此書分別從精神上和身體上探討了女同志慾望的特點。並且透過中國傳統觀念與西方思想,詮釋女同志的情誼應該涵蓋各個層面 – 肉體與精神。這個定義不僅為現代的中國文學,也在公共領域上提供了一個合宜的女同志認同。
Conjointly influenced by western theoretical practices and Chinese conceptions, lesbian and gay identities in Taiwan are represented differently from those of western culture. There exist two particular scenarios in Taiwanese lesbian texts: lesbian conflicts of self-identity under the constructions of private (familial ties) and public (social prejudice) spheres, and the existence of reticent characteristics of women?s romantic friendship. Through the comparison of British (Western) and Taiwanese (Chinese) lesbian novels, this book demonstrates women?s romantic friendship as a long-term phenomenon in lesbianism in Chinese culture, as well as the overrepresentation of sexual autonomy in contemporary Taiwan. Through the investigation of female homoeroticism in Chinese lesbian texts, it discusses lesbianism through the characteristics of female same-sex desire, both spiritually and physically. By tracing lesbianism through Chinese concepts and western ideology, lesbian eroticism should cover all aspects of passionate emotions. This definition provides a suitable lesbian subjectivity for the modern Chinese literary and political arena.
