Intersecting Identities and How the Minority Dominate the Majority


OMG- How true. Jamie Lee

Transendent Lives

The other night, I got into a bit of a heated discussion with an acquaintance of mine I know through my aunt. It started with us talking about the now memetic “binders full of women” comment made during the Tuesday debates, moved into how trans people are barred from the presidency within the current social setting of our society, and ended up getting into LGBT rights politics and somehow illegal immigration. He got offended by the fact that I mentioned how the rich, white, gay men who are the primary face and voice of the LGBT rights movement, and asked me what race and gender have to do with it. So today, I felt like discussing just how much race and gender, as well as class, have to do with not only this movement, but pretty much every movement to date.
