I voted for Donald Trump, I voted for Donald Trump because I thought he'd create a better America for everyone but after reading 800 or so pages on Queer Feminist theory I realise how much I've been duped. You gotta understand I come from a small steel town in Pennsylvania if I had known the foundational texts on intersectional theory I would never have chanted "lock her up lock her up!"
We were told Hillary Clinton was the enemy but it's clear now the true enemy is a patriarchal capitalist soceity that maintains its ascendance by making powerful and ambitious women appear threatening only to protect my status in a system purposely designed to benefit CISET white males like myself. Jesus.
Wheñ Donald Trump said that he would make America great again, it's obvious to me now that he was only trying to play off my own complicity and comfort in an unequal social structure that disproportionately strips women and minorities particularly trans and genderqueer people of color of their autonomy and seeks to subjugate and inveterate to an intentionally antagonistic androcratic order. I get that now after I attended a gender-fluid non-binary poetry slam at the Swarthmore. A couple of other guys from work attended it too and now it's all we talk about on the line.
I liked Trump because he tells it like it is but do you know who teally tells it like it is? Judith Butler "Gender is not to culture as sex is to nature; gender is also the discursive/cultural means by which 'sexed nature' or 'A natural sex' is produced and established as prediscursive, prior to culture, a politically neutral surface on which culture acts"
If I had just known thst back in November 2016 I would have never voted for Trump. God...how could I have been so stupid?
