That said, I think this book is more for educating straight and cis anarchists. If you're already a queer or trans anarchist than you may not find anything new here. I felt uncomfortable as well with how much of the book was dedicated to finding ways to make heterosexuality queer and the definition of queer (while they very clearly express is not the only one) is including BDSM and polyamory (and anything "different" from the "norm" which gives pretty much any straight person access to our identities and spaces.) As a person who has spent time around nonradical poly and kinky straight people, many of whom are oppressive as hell, giving them reason to appropriate queer identity is not something I am comfortable with. It made me wonder how many of the editors were in heterosexual relationships when I was reading the introduction, which was not what I was hoping to be my main thought while reading a book I had high hopes for.
That said, the queering heterosexuality essay, which I found quite stimulating aside from some of the jacked up words used in it, was very clear in saying straight people should be very careful not to appropriate queer identities or heterosexualize queer spaces. Unfortunately, all of the hetero "queers" I have met in real life seem to be more concerned about how much space they can take up and how oppressed they are by queer people who don't want to hook up with people in heterosexual partnerships or be their experiments. I wish this book catered less towards making heterosexual/heteroromantic people feel queer and more towards creating safer space for marginalized queer people.
Gender Sabotage, Tyranny of the State and Trans Liberation, Harm Reduction as Pleasure Activism, Queer-Cripping Anarchism, and others all made this worth buying and reading. I am glad to have it on my shelf. I just hope the focus on straight people being queer doesn't lead to even more straight people taking up queer space and pushing out the people that created it.
