I'm delighted to have been profiled by Nico Lang, who contacted me after my "Gay Marriage Is a Conservative Cause" blog went viral.

Gay Marriage IS a Conservative Cause

Hate Crimes, Exceptionalism, and the State's Order to Kill

December 29, 2012

 

The New York Times reports that 31-year-old Erika Menendez is being held after having pushed a man, Sunando Sen, onto the subway tracks in Queens.  Sen was killed by an oncoming train.

Radio Interview with Karma Chávez on Wisconsin Public Radio, WORT

I recently did an interview with my friend, collaborator, and fellow Against Equality collective member Dr.Karma Chávez on Wisconsin Public Radio, WORT (89.9 fm), out of Madison.  We talked about my piece, "Undocumented vs. Illegal: A Distinction without a Difference," and related matters. 

Undocumented vs. Illegal: A Distinction without a Difference

December 10, 2012

In representing only the good immigrants, undocumented activists are literally and metaphorically the dream activists of neoliberalismemphasising individualised narratives about freedom over systemic critique.

On Death and Exceptionalism

December 12, 2012

Have we gone so far down the path of exceptionalism that we cannot find a way to unstick ourselves from its gooey, affective mess? 

On Jim Hubbard's "United in Anger" and Jeff Edwards

 

There's an upcoming free screening of "United in Anger: A History of Act UP," at the Gene Siskel theatre on December 1. 

I have very grave problems with the fact that the film is being introduced by Jeff Edwards, a Gender Studies and Political Science professor at Roosevelt University. He's also a former member of Queer to the Left, and the man who once attempted to discredit my subsequent work by writing, in a public email, that I was "damaged goods" and that my sex life (about which he seemed to claim to know a great deal) marked me as not queer enough. 

Do We Have to Be "Equal"?

I'm happy to announce that my piece, "Do We Have to Be 'Equal'? has just appeared in Public Eye, the publication of Political Research Associates. In it, I address the ways the in which the mainstream gay movement and its support stigmatise and marginalise poor people, especially single mothers of colour, to forward its claim that it deserves adoption and foster care rights. 

Election 2012: Eyes Wide Shut

I dread the prospect of hundreds of  panels on the same topics:  “Will we ever again have a Black President?” or “Are we now PRE-racial?”, as if the problem were with the racial identity of a neoliberal President and not with his neoliberalism.

To those of you who insist that you will be the ones to hold Obama's feet to the fire: you are as deluded as those who marry alcoholics vowing to change them, and I have no interest in coddling your delusion.  When he winsand I suspect he will, even if by a very slim marginthe only feet I plan on holding to the fire are yours.
