12.4.10

"Some will read “queer” as synonymous with
“gay and lesbian” or “LGBT”. This reading falls
short. While those who would fit within the con-
structions of “L”, “G”, “B” or “T” could fall with-
in the discursive limits of queer,  queer is not
a stable area to inhabit. Queer is not merely
another identity that can be tacked onto a list
of neat social categories, nor the quantitative
sum of our identities. Rather, it is the quali-
tative position of opposition to presentations
of stability - an identity that problematizes the
manageable limits of identity. Queer is a ter-
ritory of tension, defined against the domi-
nant narrative of white-hetero-monogamous-
patriarchy, but also by an affinity with all who
are marginalized, otherized and oppressed."
