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.

This might cheer you up.

(It's ridiculously emotionally manipulative AGT, but still, worked on me.)

Thanks so much, James. That was really wonderful. Yeah, it was a little emotionally pornographic, but I feel it was touching enough that it was worth it!
