Normativity demands separateness and distinction. Normativity wants to know assuredly who is gay, who is obedient, who is patriotic, who is religious… clear role representations, clear politics, clear religious beliefs, clear displays of patriotism... clarity sutures some people into and excludes others from the normative narrative.
Queerness questions and mistrusts the façade of clarity.
Queerness knows that the clarity is an insidious form of discipline.
Queerness is gray area.
Queerness disrupts categories, structures, and preconceived notions.
