Over the last couple of days, many people around the country have been caught-up in the whole same-sex marriage drama that’s currently taking place in the Supreme Court. As someone who doesn’t personally or politically feel connected to so-called ‘marriage equality’ and, frankly, can’t fathom so much time and energy and money being poured into getting one more privilege for one group of people— especially since the people within that group who will benefit the most are mostly very privileged already—at the expense of countless other really important and much more urgent issues facing the queer community and our society as a whole (bullying and suicides of queer and queer-perceived youth, violence against transgender people, invisibilization of disabled queers and queers of color and disabled queers of color, mass incarceration, etc.), I’m just going to save myself a headache and skip the part where I argue for a more inclusive and intersectional movement and instead let y’all know what you may have missed while you were busy being obsessed with single-issue gay politics.
