Why is desire considered apolitical? What could be more political than desire? How is your exclusive preference for white sexual partners independent of white supremacy? How is your exclusive preference for male sexual partners independent of patriarchy? How are these not expressions of racist, sexist imaginations?
Here I am, your Piscean holocaust. Born in Venice Harlem with some sweet and sour sauce. — Teena Marie, “Irons In The Fire”
fierce pussy, No Special Rights for Heterosexuals, 1994
1994 No special rights
In the early ‘90s , the right wing and the Christian Coalition embarked on a campaign using the phrase “no special rights for homosexuals” A slew of legislation across the country made it legal to discriminate against queers in the workplace, housing, parenting and healthcare. Their incendiary homophobic language created a climate which encouraged violence against queers, and across the country there were countless bashings, murders and fire-bombings. Fierce pussy responded with a poster campaign appropriating “no special rights” to ask heterosexuals the question: how would it feel to have that hatred directed at you?
