This chapter uses deconstruction in order to examine the underlying concepts, assumptions and contradictions in explorations of sexuality in anti-oppressive literature (AOP). Although I use the term AOP, the discussion in this chapter is just as relevant for anti-discriminatory practice (ADP) texts. While oppression and discrimination are different things, social work texts which state that they are about either AOP (for example, Dominelli, 2002a; Dalrymple and Burke, 2006) or ADP (for example, Thompson, 2012) all discuss instances of discrimination and their occurrence in wider contexts of oppression and so have the same broad focus.
