i can't remember the last time i read something academic, indeed, written by Very Academic Somebodies, without taking notes. maybe it speaks to that strange (and strangely affective) relation i have with "queer theory" and its theoreticians -- girls can write (and there are certainly no geographers to be found amongst this bunch.) reading (seeing) all of these beautiful writers together - brainy losers, avuncular queers, momentary heroes - arguing but still vibrating across the pages, just...marks me. doubles me over too. i can't explain it (maybe i shouldn't try to?) i guess gay shit just gets me every time?
