As anthropologist Kath Weston notes in Long Slow Burn, the social sciences are just now catching up to the discipline and "getting hip to queer consideration. As even non-gay academics begin to examine literature, film, and the arts with an eye for queer sensibilities, Weston convincingly argues that gay and lesbian studies are here to stay. The essays that comprise Long Slow Burn were written at various points throughout the '90s, when queer theory emerged as a viable academic discipline.

The idea that sexuality, including homosexuality, is a social construction is associated more with The History of Sexuality than with any other work. 1 Volume I: The Will to Knowledge. In contrast to the West's sexual science, Foucault introduces the ars erotica, which he states has only existed in Ancient and Eastern societies. Furthermore, he argues that this scientia sexualis has repeatedly been used for political purposes, being utilized in the name of "public hygiene" to support state racism.

Kath Weston's powerful collection of essays, Long, Slow Burn, challenges the preconception that queer studies is the brainchild of the humanities and argues that social science has been talking about sex all along. To deny this one would have to overlook Kinsey's pioneering sex research in the 1950s, or the psychiatrist Evelyn Hooker's pathbreaking study of homosexuality, but also in the "sex talk" that lies at the heart of classic debates on kinship, inequality, cognition, and other foundational topics in the social sciences. What is different now, Weston claims, is the way sexuality has been isolated from other contemporary issues. Not content with its ghettoization as a contained subfield, Weston refuses to draw an artificial line around sexuality.
