Dear ba ba sheep. Wave high the pink and black. Seek liberation not assimilation. Love your diversity and uniqueness not the possibility of sameness with straights. Remember you can change all the laws you want but a law is a law in today and out tomorrow. Let’s get real and move out from under the state, and stop begging at their door for equality. Equality with what? The way straight folks act. Drone attacks, civil liberties gone, more capitalism. Shit on the world. To hell with the brown women in the sweat shop making the rainbow flags. Wave those flags high gay boys and girls. Revolutionaries everywhere must squash the red and pink, the blue and yellow = signs. It’s time folks its time.
Let’s think beyond straight and think of what our people really need. Let’s think beyond straight and stop this baby talk of assimilation. Let’s stop excusing ourselves and allowing a rich white gay and lesbian elite to hijack the movement convincing everyone what they want is what we all want. No marriage doesn’t preclude other anti-oppression work but you wouldn’t get those folks at the Fed building out for a free Bradley Manning rally, for a anti drone rally, for a rally against our loss of civil liberties under the present administration, out against the pink washing of Israel, to stand up against the budget cuts.
No most of this marriage movement is for themselves and marriage. We have seen it in this state. Folks happy with crumbs from the masters table cloth getting what they want and the hell with the rest. Killing community as they go pushing their little precious babies in their strollers. Just like mommy and daddy use to do. See Dad we are normal just like you. Don’t worry Mommy now you got grand kids to goo goo with. No not for me, I do not wish to have what straight folks have nor do I wish to be like straights and daily I am becoming more and more in the group of queers who dislike straights very much. PLEASE I don’t need a teary rainbow speech about loving everyone so keep it tucked in your butts. When these marrying kind stand up for all the oppressed and speak of liberation, and tell us that capitalism is wrong and a person such as Sen. Blumenthal doesn’t speak for them then maybe I will listen to their whine to be normal just like straights except for what they do in bed. My my how we have gone backwards on that one. Do you all remember that shameful plea from our wonderful stories?
Check out these young folks of color and what they have to say about this issue and your quest to marry. I have to stand with them, “Queer Rage” from LGBT Students of Color: Poetry Performance Critiques Marriage Politics, and Is Badass . enough said.
