las-fuentes asked: I wanted to ask your opinion on something that's been bothering me lately and I wanted to know if you share this view. But the idea of gayness/queerness as a defining identity really bothers me and I feel like this is something intrinsically tied to whiteness. I think that gayness can only be experienced as a master status through the context of white existence. And for POC who are, in this society, first and foremost a racial subject, sexual orientation cannot supersede race.
I agree that these terms are for the most part tied to whiteness in some way. The reason being is because our society is a society based on race. That’s the very founding of our country.
The tricky thing about labels are that on the one hand they can help individuals be able to express themselves and identify with other groups of people in a particular community, i.e. identity politics. On the other hand, this very community can become scrutinized and demonized by the dominate community at large for what ever political or social purpose. Your submission reminds me of the Marxian theory of the base and the superstructure. Whiteness is the base which permeates throughout society in various ways. (school, church, popular culture, etc.)
I agree that sexual orientation can not supersede race. We are still dealing with the affects of racism today. However, we must also recognize that individuals have intersecting identities that are emphasized or de-emphasized based on a particular context. bell hooks has a great phrase that I believe sums this up nicely “white supremacist capitalist patriarchy” these are the systems that interact with us daily and they interact with each other.

aww Icona Pop’s new video is all about ball culture and it’s really nice
Icona Pop just showed the girls how to successfully appreciate a culture by letting the participants of the culture be the stars and give them the spotlight to tell their stories. And gave them that free national promo by naming names. YES!
