Tushnet on Identity

Eve Tushnet offers a feast of explanations of why she identifies as queer. Her points are all fantastic and I agree with every last one, not just for her, but for myself as well.  I heartily endorse solidarity with the downtrodden, being mindful of and grateful for the role one’s sexuality has played in one’s conversion, refusing to reject the hard-won truths and awarenesses that one has arrived at, speaking out, enjoying the riches of gay culture, and acknowledging the complexity of identity and not taking it too seriously all the time.

Alas, the “BUT…” must wait for another day.
