The following people exist:
-queers who didn’t go to college
-queers who don’t know about queer theory
Erasing us? Super gross.
There are all kinds of easy, quiet ways for middle class, upper class, college educated, Coastal, liberal, properly progressive people to be homophobic.
In a lot of ways, y’all are uniquely violent, actually.
But we can’t talk about that.
Using someone else’s homophobia to justify your classism is about fifty different kinds of fucked up.
If you ignore how half the country works, you create an unsustainable worldview.
Dismissing someone’s poison because they’re trashy doesn’t actually make them stop mattering, you know. They’re still dangerous; you just can’t (won’t) see them anymore.
This is a stupid method of staying alive.
People aren’t homophobic because they’re lower-class or religious or rural or uneducated.
They’re homophobic because they hate us.
Stop letting them off the hook.
Also, “religious” is not a synonym for “Christian”, so if you’re assuming that all religious folk are homophobic because of a handful of (not even all!) Christian denominations (and not even all the people who are of those denominations, at that), that’s equally fucked up. Knock it off. Religion is not homogeneous. Not all faiths are the same, have the same doctrines and practices, believe the same things, have the same worldview.
