    I don't know the word "curdling", except as it applies to milk. Could you please clarify your post?

    Read bell hooks. Then you'll learn about "imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy"

    They can start with Foucault who was writing about this going to leather bars and dying of AIDS all at the same time

    Queerness is not yet here. Queerness is an ideality. Put another way, we are not yet queer. We may never touch queerness, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality. We have never been queer, yet queerness exists for us as an ideality that can be distilled from the past and used to imagine a future. The future is queerness’s domain. Queerness is a structuring and educated mode of desiring that allows us to see and feel beyond the quagmire of the present. […] Queerness is that thing that lets us feel that this world is not enough, that indeed something is missing. Often we can glimpse the worlds proposed and promised by queerness in the realm of the aesthetic. The aesthetic, especially the queer aesthetic, frequently contains blueprints and schemata of a forward-dawning futurity. Both the ornamental and the quotidian can contain a map of the utopia that is queerness. Turning to the aesthetic in the case of queerness is nothing like an escape from the social realm, insofar as queer aesthetics map future social relations. Queerness is also a performative because it is not simply a being but a doing for and toward the future. Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.

    ugh, Foucault, fuck, that takes me back to my undergrad days taking "introduction to queer theory" (and I thought getting a girl pregnant that year was my biggest mistake) seesh

    It's pretty obvious the patriarchy promotes economic inequality, homophobia, interfering in people's private sex lives and the tax and benefits systems - all to the detriment of childless gay men.

    I know the french lack inhibitions regarding sex, but they had leather bars in 1784?
