Racism, Queerdom, Freakdom

I was delighted at first to find out that the newest winner of Ru Paul's Drag Race was a Freak.... like me. Sharon Needles looks like me (or at least like I did when I was her age). She wear black lipstick and freaky contacts and used to hang out in punk squats, and I was thrilled.

Then I read this

Well, fuck.

Racism, cisexism, and classism, all in one fell swoop. I am crushed.

I have always felt that if only all the disenfranchised groups could come together and stand as one, we could overcome the empowered and create a world we can all live in. I know that sounds naive. And I guess it is. Damn it.
