If anyone is wondering what I've been up to, I've spent the last 3 weeks staring at this extract from a 1982 interview of Michel Foucault and steadily losing my fucking mind

@garfiald Hard to believe that it was confirmed in 1982 how "gay" is an umbrella term for all non-het sexual activity, not just homosexual men.


@KitsuneAlicia yeah! but also, more importantly, in my interpretation of what he's saying here, the argument isn't worth having because choosing a term to describe your "sexual identity", and then deciding that you have to act according to that "identity", is really an obstacle to creating new relations with others

@garfiald So, in other words, Foucault is a sexual anarchist advocating for the complete abolishment of the relationship hierarchy, sexual or otherwise.

Sounds good to us! :blob_anar_raccoon:

"Befriend who you want, date who you want, and fuck the limiting labels assigned to each one."
-Michel Foucault
