QotD: “queer liberation, not incarceration”

This is interesting (but two years old, so not exactly cutting-edge ‘news’ any more), that not all people who describe themselves as ‘queer’ are entirely uncritical of pornography and BDSM:

At least six people were arrested on Saturday night after a protest against a prison-themed Kink.com party. The protestors’ message was “queer liberation, not incarceration.”

This is a travesty–on the anniversary of the famed Stonewall Rebellion, where trans and queer people rose up against police brutality, that six people would be arrested for protesting an SF Pride-sanctioned party that celebrated state violence and prison rape.

The six included a National Lawyers’ Guild Legal Observer; several protesters were clubbed and beaten to the ground after a protest numbering several hundred marched to the Armory at 14thand Mission Streets in the Mission District, from a 10 p.m. gathering at the 16th Street BART Station
