Why are faggots so afraid of faggots? Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification, and the Desire to Conform - Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore


Gay culture has become a nightmare of consumerism, whether it's a quest for the perfect clothes or implants for the perfect body. Whatever happened to sexual flamboyance and gender liberation? Challenging not the just the violence of straight homophobia but the hypocrisy of mainstream gay norms that say the only way to stay safe is to act straight. Sycamore reinvokes the anger, flamboyance and subversion once thriving in gay subcultures in order to explore the perils of assimilation and call for accountability and provide a vision for change.
