We may never touch queerness, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality….The future is queerness’ domain. Queerness is a structuring and educated mode of desiring that allows us to see the future beyond the quagmire of the present….We must dream and enact new and better pleasures, other ways of being in the world, and ultimately new worlds….Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.
— José Muñoz, 1967-2013 (via helixqpn)
When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.
