I really only have one question about this:
What would real gay liberation look like? Marriage would be abolished for all in favour of something based on equality and next of kin rights rather than ownership and tax avoidance. Gay men and lesbians alike would challenge a culture and politics based on consumerism, and would speak out against the misogyny that confines both groups to stereotypes. And we would look beyond the picket fence and rejoin the picket lines in protest about the ongoing oppression and anti-gay bigotry we still face, despite legislative equality.
What in buggery does that have to do with what set of genitals one desires to fondle or be fondled by?
I get the idea about smashing the basic viviparous mammalian living arrangements that our species is prone to. Smashing capitalism and consumerism. I even get the idea that who you sleep with and how is a matter entirely of individual determination. I’ll agree that that last is a highly desirable state of affairs while rather humming and hawing about the first two.
I just cannot for the life of me see the connection between them all.
