Why aren’t there more radical queers? I just think it’s amazing that there aren’t more of them. Don’t people realize that legalizing gay marriage was an attempt to get us to shut up about homophobia and heteronormativity?

Some of many possible reasons

  • the world trying to kill you and right now you are a shrunken heap of coping
  • capitalist ideology is pervasive as fuck
  • your family wouldn't understand in an even deeper way than if you were a homonormie
  • you need to pay the rent
  • Internalised queerphobia and lack of self-acceptance
  • it is illegal to be gay at all
  • dropping homonormativity opens so many doors it's overwhelming just looking at them
