Marriage Equality: Don’t Let the Good Become the Enemy of the Perfect on Feed 44

C4SS Feed 44 presents Cory Massimino‘s “Marriage Equality: Don’t Let the Good Become the Enemy of the Perfect” read by Tony Dreher and edited by Nick Ford.

Elizabeth Tate reminds us, “The very act of calling it ‘gay rights’ erases the identity and experiences of everyone else within the queer community (gay is only one identity and marriage equality does not help bisexual folks, transgender folks, and many others.)”

We mustn’t dismiss the identity of some marginalized groups when discussing or fighting for other, related marginalized groups, even if they are both mentioned in the same, common acronym. The acronym “LGBTQIA” encompasses a wide subset of oppressed minorities; boiling it all down to merely one letter of the acronym when others are suffering in their own distinct ways is counter-productive.
