the minute I saw the phrase, "revising history to suit an agenda" I knew that the person who wrote had their own agenda.

Speculative writing of this nature hurts no one, unless you think that being queer is an aberration.

My teacher, Lillian Faderman, taught me that queerness is a social construct, in terms of how not being a 100% hetero gets represented in different time periods and cultures.

But however you slice it, some of us just are....queer.
