The Queer by Choice Community


Hi my name is Eric and I'm new to this LJ community. I've been really pissed off by my assimilationist LGB peers and I am sick of them using the idea of the gay 'gene' as an excuse and justification to assimilate into mainstream culture. I feel like they're victimizing themselves and giving away their power. They're also telling the rest of the world that they cannot be LGB or queer without a scientific explanation.

I'm majoring in Languages & Cultures and minoring in Queer Studies at California State University Northridge. We just started this minor last Fall and I am having trouble getting my peers interested. Any tips on recruiting?

I'm not sure why this community is apparently being attacked by comment-spam today. Sorry about that. Welcome to the community! That definitely bothers me too, when I keep seeing comment threads about queer rights and same-sex marriage and so on degenerate into needless, stupid arguments about a 'gay gene' that (a) really hasn't been "proven" like so many people want to insist and (b) really isn't relevant in any way to the fact that we and our relationships should have equal rights and recognition.
