  1. Thanks for this piece! It spoke to me so much! I’m in a very similar life-place. As an anti-marriage queer feminist who would ideally like to bring down the whole institution, I also have fought for marriage equality in my state and am what we call “queer married.” Being radically queer doesn’t preclude you from working on progressive causes. Winning progressive policy change doesn’t mean you can’t still critique those progressive gains.

    Getting queer married was ridiculously weird and hard for me as I tried to hold these ideas in balance. Even more so when people wanted me to be super normative about it. Thank you for writing such an articulate piece about that uncomfortable tension.

    P.S. Thanks for the link to our blog post. We appreciate it! -K
