The force surrounds us binds us and penetrates us.. the force is a rapist... The force is also apparently female... Females are rapists Disney confirmed. The force is a trans woman

I only point this out because this is the first time I've heard some distinction between, or distancing of one kind of queer from another.

Now this could just be a throwaway statement, but I also wonder if, should a popular pushback against queer ideology occur, how many people will rely on the "I just meant lowercase queer" to walk back their arguments.

Queer, in a casual sense, might mean anyone homosexual or claiming to be transgender, but not much else. This may have become politically apocryphal now.

But in the academic sense (capital Q?) queer (which is now effectively institutional), then it becomes a whole ideology about overturning the heterosexual majority with disruptive tactics, ultimately having the Marxist goal of overthrowing capitalism.

I googled "capital Q queer" and didn't turn up too much, but it did find this. Wouldn't it be funny if we've come full circle now.

Using the phrase "Methinks 'tis related to normativity" is almost certainly a guarantee of why this person is disliked by their peers, but of course it's just because they're "too Queer!" for the regular queer people.

I'm with this kid's mom; these kids have no business "reclaiming" a slur that was never used against them while people that are only in their 30s that actually did have that slur used against them are asking it not to be used.

I thought that it goes further and it's a movement for disruption of "the norm" for disruption's sake, which is even worse than overthrow capitalism- because if the queer theorist gets their way and society is queered, then the most queer thing is to be a alt-right staunch conservative Christian, and thus they will be that to disrupt normalcy.

Most of the theory is 3rd or 4th generation Marxism. But there is a strong anarchist element too.

The norms they want to disrupt are the pillars of capitalism.
