How comfortable indeed…

The Disobedient Feminist

You know, I never was bothered by queer theory/ identity until the last few years because I thought that it was just that: an identity that was just used as a descriptor of self. I didn’t realize how seriously queer theory was being taken as a means of addressing oppression. I thought it was just used as a label to recognize individuals with similar tastes regarding sexuality. I thought it was just something people used to sound edgy and be creative.

I thought this mainly because queer theory was not a relevant point of discussion in my women’s studies department. I took one cross course in the queer department, but otherwise it was recognized for what it is: a theory created by gay men with nothing productive to contribute to women’s liberation.

Unfortunately feminists such as Judith Butler got involved, and queer theory became mainstreamed in feminism and society.
