We were discussing bi and queer-erasure during lunch and I became super steamed. I can’t handle this. I’m really glad I have friends who I can discuss this stuff with though.

Queer theory challenges sexuality studies to move beyond humanist understandings of essential sexual identities that animate a politics of liberation for those who are presumably excluded from heterosexual hegemony.

Hi everyone! Thanks for all the nice things you said, Prom was lovely. It’s crazy to think such a pivotal thing happened (or at least by American teen standards) only hours ago. Hmm, a good night.

How many times have I wondered if it is really possible to forge links with a mass of people when one has never had strong feelings for anyone, not even one’s own parents; if it is possible to have a collectivity when one has not been deeply loved oneself by individual human creatures. Hasn’t this had some effect on my life as a militant – has it not tended to make me sterile and reduce my quality as a revolutionary by making everything a matter of pure intellect, of pure mathematical calculation?
