One of main bottlenecks in the discourse on “#identity” is the conflation of ‘identity’, which is subjective, and ‘social position’, which is not.
To understand things like #race and #gender as ONLY ‘identity’ is to grasp the rim but drop the ball so to speak. Race and gender are not merely ‘identities’ but also ‘social classes’, as economic #class is, social life being a unified whole and not a neatly segemented set of distinct, distant sectors.
Do you remember when Zoe Saldana was an awesome character in the first Pirates of the Carribean movie and had a whole backstory with Jack that actually sounded plausible and interesting and literally captained her OWN SHIP and then they did nothing with her?
I think about this way too often.
She was also a goddess, so yeah. Lots there.
