({self}NARRATIVE)POINTS OF VIEW;AND “NECK”. FOR LGBT CREATIVE WRITING GROUP. WORDCOUNT C 250.BY STEVEN BENSON

POINTS OF VIEW

1. My/your OWN,individual (self) narrative; mediated by:

2. The interface/interference of heteronormative assumptions.

3. “I am gay”, I SAY{“deal with it”}; they say: “You are always going on about being gay”.

POINTS of view, some oppressive and invisibilizing. Why do lgbt people have a minoritized, problematized point of view?{rhetorical; answer= it’s obvious; google it, or read some critical theory}

——————————————————–

“{me}Hello, I am Steve; we are talking re discrimination, in various senses; I am a gay ; I am also a person; you attack racism /classism{good} but you, somehow, think it is ok to say “you are always going on about being gay” lol; it’s risible; it’s ridiculous; its also NOT critical thinking and, more, IT’S OFFENSIVE/HURTFUL/INSULTING and invades my personhood/sense of self. Please educate yourself; I am tired of doing it for you”

“{them/the homophobes or heterosexists}: I just do not see the need for gay people {they quite often do not know what lgbt means!} to ram it down our throat{s?};I am not discriminatory”: someone A C T U A L L Y said that to me recently.

BLAH BLAH BLAH; I m bored of it/you; that is MY, individuated sense of self speaking and point of view.

Moral relativism: “its ok for people to hold discriminatory attitudes caused by their religion/culture/political dogma”; {Me}”No its NOT; this is not some putative “Western Liberal agenda/point of view”; not being beheaded as a gay man, not being genitally mutilated(as a woman, INCULCATED. against her will,with religious dogmas) are rights to life/HUMAN rights; and being gay is not a “lifestyle”{though it is often fun lol}.

 

SO, not everything is a point of view; some things are just our rights as HUMANS: food, shelter, sexual/love needs,culture, not to be oppressed/mutiliated.We ALL need these basics. FUCK YOUR “MORAL RELATIVISM”.

 

SO, I have stuck my NECK out! Put my head above the parapet; for garrotting?
