‘PRETEND TO BE STRAIGHT!’ WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE WORLD? #WEEKENDESSAY: Comment on lesbian/gay bigotism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific

Abstract

We need to redescribe our critique towards EU and the US by taking also an account of the bigotist white lesbians and gays. The newly-gained rights to be “included” sexually in some legal regimes creates homonationalism, as some people have started to imagine queer whiteness as their “natural” safeguard and are expressing this in the political arenas, both queer and straight. However, their imagined white-queer-inclusive states would no doubt sacrifice them in the first possible instance for the war, or to use them as scapegoats in order to gain exactly such political targets which would do not include them once some bigger goals have been reached.
