    Ending at the Skin: Sexuality and Race in Feminist Theorizing.Abby Wilkerson - 1997 - Hypatia 12 (3):164-173.
    Many feminists have found inspiration in Donna Haraway's myth of the cyborg (1990). From the standpoint of feminist bisexual identity, however, I contend that this myth evades the very issues of race and sexuality which it seems to be addressing. I examine the uses of a bisexual standpoint for a more concrete, situated approach to theorizing sexuality, arguing that reflection on racial identities must be incorporated as well.

    “Obesity,” the Transnational Plate, and the Thin Contract.Abby Wilkerson - 2010 - Radical Philosophy Review 13 (1):43-67.
    This article explores how the notion of obesity as health problem (1) functions to obscure or justify global inequities related to food production and access and (2) indicates still deeper problems of injustice and the neglected role of embodiment in analyses of justice and injustice, and notions of political subjecthood. Food, the need to eat, and the food system shape social existence profoundly yet are underexplored in philosophy, especially political philosophy. Drawing on disability theory and food studies, this article uses (...)

    I Want to Hold Your Hand: Abstinence Curricula, Bioethics, and the Silencing of Desire. [REVIEW]Abby Wilkerson - 2013 - Journal of Medical Humanities 34 (2):101-108.
    The abstinence approach to sex education remains influential despite its demonstrated ineffectiveness. One bill forbids the “promotion” of “gateway sexual activity,” while requiring outright condemnation of “non-abstinence,” defined so loosely as to plausibly include handholding. Bioethics seldom (if ever) contributes to sex-ed debates, yet exploring the pivotal role of medical discourse reveals the need for bioethical intervention. Sex-ed debates revolve around a theory of human flourishing based on heteronormative temporality, a developmental teleology ensuring the transmission of various supposed social goods (...)

    Composing Disability: Diagnosis, Interrupted.Abby Wilkerson, Joseph Fisher & Wade Fletcher - 2016 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 13 (4):473-476.
    Writing is central both to the medical diagnostic codification of disability and to disabled people’s efforts to interrupt, complicate, or disrupt dominant medical narratives. This Symposium, like the George Washington University conference from which it takes its name, creates space for diverse modes and genres of claiming authority regarding diagnosis and its cultural and material effects. “Queer” and “crip” interrogations of diagnosis illuminate its status as a cultural phenomenon, embracing culturally disavowed embodiments and embodied experiences as tools for diagnosing inegalitarian (...)
