Abstract
Raising My Rainbow is Lori Duron's frank, heartfelt, and brutally funny account of her and her family's adventures of distress and happiness raising a gender-creative son. Whereas her older son, Chase, is a Lego-loving, sports-playing boy's boy, her younger son, C.J., would much rather twirl around in a pink sparkly tutu, with a Disney Princess in each hand while singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi."
C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming, whichever you prefer. Whatever the term, Lori has a boy who likes girl stuff - really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender-variation spectrum from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mess or a rainbow creation. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow.

Abstract
In this book, Sarah Smith Rainey examines the subject of care between couples consisting of a disabled person and a nondisabled person, focusing on the nature of care in loving and sexual relationships. Rainey illustrates that the bulk of existing research posits care as a burden most often placed on women and that caring of disabled people is portrayed as stressful, and more often than not, a major factor in relationship disillusion. Rainey asserts that in many cases care between disabled/nondisabled couples offers a profound aspect of intimacy that enables relationship resilience.
