‘Queer struggle is class struggle!’
I like this phrase, because it evokes revolutionary politics.
Politics informed by queers and our struggles
placed outside the system through the system
violence coloring the entire process.
What i fear is it becoming just that
reminiscent of days gone by and struggles that rallied
‘black white unite and fight’
with no real understanding of what ‘black’ and ‘white’ means
in terms of class and therefore struggle.
Capital is too complex for shallow understandings of our oppression
and i, for one, am tired of being erased.
