QUEER IS NO BORDERS
Queer rights will not be exploited for the benefit of racist politics. Queerization stands for abolition of Fortress Europe and its border control that leads to thousands of deaths on the Mediterranean. We refuse politics that positions humans hierarchical categories according to the color of their skin, their religion or birthplace.
We will not have ourselves used as an excuse to promote nationalism. Queer rights are being hijacked to back a propaganda project that paints a picture of homophobic immigrants. Meanwhile, queers who have fled their home countries are not granted asylum in Finland. Our relationships, including those of immigrant queers, do not fit the heteronormative family model that is the prerequisite of citizenship. Queer has no borders.
QUEER IS RADICAL SELF-DETERMINATION
Medical trans examinations need to stop. The trans experience is none of the state’s or medical authorities’ business. Everyone should be able to self-determine their gender by announcement. What do we need gender juridics for? Juridical gender, name changes & modification of one’s body should not be governed by the state. We want radical self determination of our bodies and identities.
QUEER IS CONFLICT
Queer challenges the norms of society – both those of the state and in our own communities. It’s not just one more identity, but a way of thinking and acting that constantly dismantles power hierarchies & privileges.
Queer is in conflict with everything normative that crushes our spirit, makes us hate ourselves, makes our lives look worthless and less real. Queer does not measure the value of life according to the logic of productivity. Queer shakes the certainty with which we estimate the capabilities of our bodies, the bodies of others and what they can be. We are not victims of the system: we have a right and strength to revolt!
