Here is an email sent to a friend of my from a girl who “identifies” as “queer” not “bisexual”.
oh! i almost forgot. language is obviously essential in how we understand concepts. “bisexual” reinforces the oppressive gender binary. i also like queer because it’s vague. it basically means not straight. and sometimes i feel mostly straight and sometimes i feel mostly gay. i don’t like all genders equally all the time. my attraction to a cis woman is different from a cis man from a ftm trans from a non-binary person etc etc. also i love the history and community associated with the word queer, it being an insult reclaimed by the queer community. i hope that makes sense!
My new name for the GLBT community is GLBTKKK. I think that sums it up nicely. I love how the GLBTKKK says you can’t label people but sets up all sorts of labels for people. Cis man, cis woman, ftm trans, non-binary, queer. For a group of people against labels they certainly have many labels for people.
Catching Fire was pretty terrible. Statism, weak female lead and a repeat of Hunger Games.
Obamacare cost more than not having Obamacare and paying the penalty. I told you that. You don’t listen.
Annie E. Clark and Andrea Pino attempt to fight sexual assault. By asking the government to solve the problem for them and by putting notes in little blue boxes. Not by expecting women to be agents and not by teaching the Non-Aggression Principle.
