"Why is the sexuality of people with intellectual disabilities often deemed 'risky' or 'inappropriate' by teachers, parents, support staff, medical professionals, judges, and the media? Should sexual citizenship depend on IQ? Confronting such questions head-on, 'Already Doing It' exposes the 'sexual ableism' that denies the reality of individuals who, despite the restrictions they face, actively make decisions about their sexual lives." -- BOOK JACKET
