How about instead of endless bickering, we actually try to dissolve the systems that oppress us. How about instead of liberal oppression olympics we have some fucking solidarity.
We need to push to abolish gender assignment at birth. We need to stop assimilating into the capitalist systems that exploit us. We. Need. Solidarity. Stop fighting each other and go dismantle the power structure entirely. Stop with the half baked liberal ideas. Queerness is a class component enforced by and for the benefit of strictly dyadic, monogamous, cisgender, heterosexual, AND heteroromantic people. Unless you are all of that, you’re part of this fucking community. We will not get anywhere sitting here tearing at each other. I (Roe) remember when the trans vs intersex discourse was strong and that shit??? POINTLESS. That was my first big experience with this shit, and it! Was! Pointless!!!! The gendered system, the oppression and erasure of a reality outside the construct of a dyadic cisgender binary hurts both ducking communities. The assignment of gender at birth affects both of us, the systemic assumption of dyadic+cisgender bodies hurts us. This same shit applies to the wider community. We are bonded by our shared experiences in the context of oppression. If you are not all of the things listed before, this. System. Hurts. You. Those factors are interlocked. It is a singular axis of oppression within which there is much diversity, but it is still a single axis. Mutulation of intersex children, medicaluzation of our identities, medical failure to address the needs of trans people, psychological torture aimed at us, the enforced expectation of monogamous nuclear family style relationships, the animosity and rejection of people who are not strictly straight, all of these are factors of queer oppression, they are all part of a system of oppression based around social control, the aim of which is ultimately to strip people of identity, to enforce the idea that we need to be paired up and produce children, that we must be a certain way, that deviation, NATURAL deviation by development, by psychology, by chromosomes is unacceptable… the reason behind it all is to make us productive little servants, cogs in the machines that benefit our oppressors, lining their pockets, enforcing their ideologies. It’s meant to tear away our identity and cohesiveness and make our only purpose to sustain their pool of people to exploit and manipulate. If they can’t control us, they loose. We? We have nothing to lose but our chains. Arguing about sex this, spectrum that, beating each other down??? It does nothing to disrupt their system, in fact it adds to and reinforces there system. That is why that shit is reactionary - it only serves the oppressive systems already at play. You cannot abolish gender while forcing dyadicism. You cannot abolish straight centric society without abolishing gender identity and socially enforced monogamy. You CANT. They’re interwoven. We are in this struggle together - we might have different specifics to how the system affects us individually, but that is a red herring. The system does not target us as individuals, it targets us as a class, just like all other social class systems and just like the economic class system.
The system relies on our cooperation. To assimilate in is to abandon all the others and be sympathetic to the oppression in and of itself, it’s reactionary by nature. We aren’t oppressed *because* we aren’t cis, or aren’t straight, or aren’t dyadic, or aren’t monogamous. We are oppressed because the reality of human variety is incompatible with their system that exists for their profit. We are oppressed because our existence is a threat to the overall narrative and control of the groups with the power. That is what unites our struggle, and other socially oppressed groups have similar fights to fight (targets of racist systems, targets of ablist systems, targets of religious persecution), which all tie back to, as a whole, trying to keep us under the heel of economic class dynamics. It doesn’t matter if you’re trans or gnc, if you’re bi or strictly SGA, if you’re pan or not, if you’re binary or not, if you’re dysphoric or not, what kind of intersex you are, whether you’re closed or open poly, split attraction of not, IT. DOESNT. MATTER. Stop. Fucking. Fighting. Each other. Punch up, not down. Punch up, not to the sides.
We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it. They stand to loose their political supremacy, system of profit, and social control - we have nothing to lose but our chains. Enough already.
(No one is forced to use the label queer if they don’t want it, if they are uncomfortable with it, or anything like this. Queer is referring the the social class dynamic between only the non-queer class and the queer class, the manufactured classes in this power dynamic and system of oppression).
