Abstract

"The English Patient" and "Fun Home" are both texts that involve the topic of sex and male sexuality. However, these topics are handled very differently when it comes to race. "The English Patient" treats a harmless brown man as a threat whereas "Fun Home" portrays an abusive white man as safe. This paper examines the differences in treatment and reflects on what this says about the view of men-of-color as sexual threats in the culture at large.
