Imagine a world in which the old normal has been completely destroyed, replaced by a new normal that follows leftist/feminist/anarchist norms.
Even if you are attracted to the opposite sex in this brave new world, if you are male,you act according to traditional feminine norms, while your female partner acts according to traditional male norms. In short, men act like lesbian women, while women act like gay men. It’s called queering heterosexuality.
Your penis has been replaced by BOB, your partner’s Battery Operated Boyfriend (a vibrating dildo). I suppose that vaginal sex with her is out. Is anal in? I have no idea.
Queering heterosexuality flips the script. That much is for sure.
A number of my students were queer heterosexuals. For example, one very attractive 20 year old coed once suggested some sort of bizarre sex that I did not completely understand at the time, since I was not aware of queer heterosexuality at the time. I THINK (not sure) that what she suggested was some sort of threesome that involved her, me, and another male professor, with somebody wearing a strap on dildo. I’m not sure if that somebody was her or one of us males. I know that following queer norms that we men would be anally penetrated, possibly by each other or by her and her strap on.
This kind of (to me) bizarre sexuality permeates college campuses today. They learn it from pron and they learn it from profs–feminist profs, not men.
The author of “queering heterosexualities”, Sandra Jeppesen, being a good feminist/anarchist does not use capital letters in her paper, excerpted below. How’s that for rebellion?
First, an excerpt from one of the professor’s older publications, from the journal fishpiss. Here she does capitalize.
How to go Insane in Ten Easy Steps
1. Skip two grades in grade school, move six times to six different cities, never make any close friends. Hate everybody, they probably hated you first. Be a shit-disturber in class. Swear precociously. Get into fights at school and get sent to the office a lot. Learn to say the alphabet backwards from Z. Fight with your parents about everything. Snigger secretly because you know you are smarter than they are. When they hit you, hit back. Lie to your friends (when you have them) about your black eyes, your broken teeth.
2. Go to university when you are sixteen. Study pure mathematics or quantum physics. Pierce one eyebrow, your bellybutton and both nipples. Shave your head. Read Sylvia Plath and like it. Hang out with people who are more fucked up than you. They will be hard to find. Don’t get discouraged, keep looking. Drop lots of acid with them, control your hallucinations, get cramped cheeks from laughing so hard. Drop ten hits the night before you have to go to the suburbs for Father’s Day. You are still tripping. Listen to your father trying to have a heart-to-heart with you for maybe the first time ever. Look him straight in the eye and say, Y’know Dad, you always did remind me of Elvis. Never laugh when you are straight. This will not be often.
My interpretation of this writing is that while there is an element of satire and trolling, that she is proud of being mental.
I assume that piece is autobiographical. It exhibits a certain detachment from reality. The next piece certainly is autobiographical:
Excerpt from The Anarchist Library. I’ve broken up her long paragraph for readabilty.
in this piece i will be considering the impact that taking on queer politics has had in my life, thinking through ways that queering anarchism might happen in the lives of anarchists and anti-authoritarians who society may identify as heterosexual due to the sex and/ or gender of the object of their desire, but who ourselves disidentify with all things straight, perhaps even with the subject-position of heterosexual.
what does this mean? this means that we are working on queering straight-seeming spaces, that we are straight-ish allies of queer struggles, challenging heteronormativity in the anarchist movement, as well as in the mainstream spaces we inhabit, from workplaces to families, from classrooms to cultural productions.
this piece itself is one intervention that attempts to queer the space of narrative and theory, through non-capitalization, on the one hand, and on the other hand, through mobilizing a personal narrative to think through or theorize the queering of heterosexuality and the de-heteronormativizing of ‘straight-acting’ spaces.
through an examination of the queering of hetero-space from an anarchist perspective, a liberatory politics of sexualities and genders emerges that intersects with anarchaqueer liberation in challenging dominant forms of social organization including the state, marriage, capitalism, parenting, love relationships, friendships, families, and other important sites of anarchist politics and struggle.
non-normative sexuality means, among other things, that people ditch sexual norms, and just hook up with and have long-term relationships with whoever inspires them, doing whatever they are into sexually.
for me, sometimes this is women, sometimes it is men. often it is with people who are not my age. when i was younger i dated older people and now that i’m a bit older i seem to date younger people. these are more or less the people i seem to find myself hanging out with.
i don’t really see age as an interesting way of dividing people. my friendships have always been across ages and even generations. my current partner is more than ten years younger than me. when we got together we were polyamorous and, although we communicated well and had great sex, we weren’t taking the relationship too seriously. it was lots of fun. we both had other partners, but soon that kind of went away, and we made more of an explicit commitment to each other, first to be primary partners, and then to be monogamous. i’ve always felt a little ambivalent about this decision.
recently i moved to another town, and we decided to be poly, although neither of us have acted on it yet.
Here’s a short video that introduces students to their queer/anarchist/feminist/bisexual professor:
This is what taxpayer dollars are buying today. Is it any wonder that students emerge confused and ignorant.
