Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer are sexual, gender, and sexual orientation identities constructed outside cisgendered or heteronormative conventions.
In 'A Cyborg Manifesto', Donna Haraway criticizes traditional notions of feminism, particularly its emphasis on identity, rather than affinity. She explores the potential of the cyborg concept in order to construct a postmodern feminism that moves beyond dualisms and the limitations of traditional gender, feminism, and politics.

Essentialism is the idea that there exists some detectible and objective core quality of particular groups of people that is inherent, eternal, and unalterable; groupings can be categorized according to these qualities of essence, which are based on such problematic criteria as gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, and class. Racism, sexism, classism, and most other forms of historical oppression are ideologies and policies maintained and justiÀed by essentialism.

Queer and Trans Youth Resistance
A collection of radical queer moments
A chart summarizing the relationships between a variety of types of privilege
QUEERS READ THIS was distributed as a leaflet at the June 1990 Pride march in New York City. The authors define straightness as different from heterosexuality. Straightness is a force in the world and inside each of us that we must purge. Straightness is normality. The norm for queer people is to take oppression lying down. These authors urge us to fight back.
the rapist is not a deviant. Rape is the norm. Rape is not a crime of passion; it is quite possibly passion’s farthest opposite. Passion’s crime par excellence is murder; we murder for hate or for love. Murder is an act that violates the right to life that is promised by governments; its logical conclusion is pure murder, a violence without object. Rape has only its object. Rape’s logical concussion is pure distance. The rapist does not hate or love its object; the rapist only feels distance. At least perverts have their imagination to feel at home with. Rapists are alone even when they are with their thought. They are the saddest creatures to walk this earth.
