Chapter 7 elucidates the main arguments of the book: First, that practices of transcription and media technologies that facilitate the (re)tracing of recorded speech have been central to the process of boom-making through which queerqueen styles cross from the subcultural to the mainstream. Furthermore, that queerqueen styles are configured as “authentic” speech that is produced spontaneously without scripting and then “faithfully” (re)traced into text. Such packaging elides collaborative processes of writing and editorial interventions practiced by producers, editors, stenographers, and professional writers, while also maintaining their trace in the text itself. The queerqueen in mainstream media is curtailed by transphobic and homophobic discourses through which their desire is reproduced as excessive. Tropes of self-censorship regiment what can be heard and/or seen and that which must be muted and/or covered. To limit queerqueen figures to heteronormative respectability is to expose the sexualized nature of gendered norms of talk in Japanese.
