Queer Theory: Personal is Political

About Queer Theory: Personal is Political

"The underpinnings of all the songs and clothes was, for me, a core rejection of the way the world operates, the mainstream world. It was a critique of capitalism, which makes some people rich on the backs of so many powerless workers. It was about smashing beauty standards that taught fat boys and girls and anyone nor adhering to inhuman expectations to hate themselves. And when you get down to what all these rebellions have in common, it's basic kindness. Love, even. It is making a pledge not to hurt other people - not to profit off their labour, not to teach them to hate their bodies, not to turn hostile at the way we differ from one another, but to go forward, toward a giant community, fighting only against whoever would keep us down and apart, powerless. Under the whole "personal is political" motto of feminism, I feel that personal kindness, treating people decently, is political - is punk."
Beth Ditto in 'Coal to Diamonds' 2012
