Anonymous asked: Speaking of, what are your views on queers assimilation?

Actually, I’ve always thought the idea of “queer assimilation” was a bit of a misnomer. I’m not sure how exactly we go about being assimilated into a culture we’ve already been born and raised into. 

Feel free to disagree with the tactics, but what these “queer assimilationists” are fighting for is the end to, for lack of a better term, “queer excommunication.” That is any acknowledgement of or action on being queer came with the risk of literally getting you shunned from the community into which you were born. Which pretty much was the standard quo for a long time. 

IDK, it sucks horrible corporations are sponsoring pride parades, but horrible corporations sponsor everything. Oh well.
