A Lesbian Celebration of Jael One might be forgiven for imagining that we must have reached a point in history where some of those who are thought to belong to the category of “women” are free enough to inhabit alternative genders without serious repercussion. , despite the unrelenting existence of “women’s” and “menswear” sections of department stores, “women” are free to inhabit clothing predominantly sold to “men” (I object strongly to GUEST: FROM GENDER REVERSAL TO GENDERFUCK 31 the label “menswear”); find jobs in locations that were traditionally not theirs; live in committed relationships with other “women,” which was, until very recently the legal preserve of “men”; and partake generally in what society has on offer.

Thus: When the manhood of its [Israel’s] kings and aspiring kings is represented so often at risk, the manhood of Israel itself would seem to be uncertain. Biblical iterations of gender begin to appear much more often as failed approximations to an ideal, to use Butler’s language; and the Bible’s contributions to stable norms of sex and gender seem much less clear. (Stone 2007, 199) When it comes to the story of Jael, there is a similar potential for fallout. It is already apparent that one knock-on effect of positing a strong, active female character—I use female here because the narrator does signal that Jael is a woman even while he disrupts this with the rape imagery—is that the gender iterations of the men in the narrative are compromised.
