Afterwards Judith whispered in my ear, “I feel like I’m your super egoomg

Jessica Yee—Say a lil about your first experience, sexual or not, of “finding another queer person for the first time.”
Well, my best friend growing up is and always was super gay. She came out in high school which was a big deal bc we actually met at church and went to a christian school together and her parents, like mine, were super religious. I never thought about it tho because I was “straight” then—really I think I just had a lot of internalized homophobia and all sorts of shit going on so my friend coming out to me didn’t at all change the way I thought of my own sexuality. In college I would get hit on all the time by girls (and occasionally made out with them) because i set off gaydars everywhere I went but I still considered myself “straight.” I ended up falling for this girl after I graduated and that was kind of the catalyst but I look back now at these inexplicable “attractions” I used to have to women throughout high school and college (they weren’t “sexual” at all, they were just really intense/weird/scary feelingz) and how I used to get super nervous as a kid during sleepovers and refuse to sleep in the same bed as my friends, etc., and it all makes sense. Not that it has to. These things don’t have to “mean” anything, etc.

Well, considering a lot of colonial states and imperialist states, former slave states, etc exist in the West it IS something that should be included but yeah I see where you’re coming from.
you know by “the West” he has a very specific anglo-european (spatio-temporal) location in mind right? dude only had so much time to write. I’m less interested in whether or not he wrote about these things and how his theories and concepts can be applied to critique things like colonialism, racism, etc.

She wrote Race and the Education of Desire, which is an expansion on Foucault that included colonialism.
yeah I know who she is and I’m familiar with the critique—I just personally haven’t read her work. I really wonder what ppl expected of Foukie tho like dude wrote a shit ton of stuff, arguably the most influential thinker of the 20th century, completely reworked the way we think about power and knowledge and all these things…and with a couple exceptions, he explicitly says “I’m talking about how these things work IN THE WEST” cuz like that’s what he knows and he’s a white french dude. People like Ed Said took him up in other colonial contexts, which is great, but I’ve always found the “Foucault is eurocentric” argument to be unfair and frankly boringggg
Anonymous asked: What is the blind spot in Foucault's analysis (on power) that Ann Stoller addresses, and how does she draw from Foucault to address this blind spot?
lol, I haven’t read Ann Stoler why does this sound like a trivia question is this like your undergrad essay prompt that you’re trying to get me to write for u?

I was gonna tell the story about how I told the straight white libertarian scumbag in my program how he didn’t have the right to an opinion on anything, but does the time I tore apart whakafuck’s argument that “foucault was a libertarian” count?
