Agenda: Gender

Not quiet at all is a new breed of young people who prove that genderfucking can still be in-your-face. This second wave is hell-bent on creating their own labels: baby butches, tranny boys, girlfags, genderqueers, pansexual girls and bois. They eat Judith Butler's cultural theories for breakfast. Some of these exceptional specimens of the future of gender were at the conference, and they give me hope. Many of them say "Fuck Your Gender" and mean fuck gender altogether. The I-don't-identify-as-anything-but-me generation wants to toss out the baby, the bathwater, and especially that silly blue bonnet. Can't wait to see the stickers and the riots they create.

PS: That right-wing bastard Fred Phelps (of God Hates Fags fame) is protesting at the graduation ceremony of Krystal Bennet, on June 9 in Ferndale, Washington. She's the lesbian high school student who was elected prom king, whom I wrote about in my last column. Supporters of Krystal can pledge money for every minute that bigoted crap spews from Phelps. Donations will be made to a scholarship fund administered by Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (www.pflag.org). E-mail queentoaster@hotmail.com for details.
