I am a straight, male, middle-class, Taiwanese American.

I have liberal democratic “instincts” coming from at least four and probably more sources. 

An empirical difference.

A coffee shop full of isolated men on laptops is a suggestion that men more than women cannot stand being home alone.

Intersectional implications.

Every axis of social formation can move in at least two directions (oppressor and oppressed), where it crosses at least one other axis (e.g. gendered race, raced gender).

Don’t read “the classics” in terms of identity.

If they spewed idiocies about race, nation, gender, and sexuality, who knows what else they could be wrong about?
