When we speak of and celebrate ‘global queer’ movements, we have to question if we are standing in solidarity with people who are resisting inequalities based on sex, gender or sexual orientation, or if we are projecting sex, gender and sexual orientation as points of differences with which we want to stand in solidarity for the sole purpose of empowering ourselves and feeling like we know enough of Other oppressed peoples. This becomes dangerous when we call ourselves allies while refusing to let the Others talk about how liberal queer rights movement can and has come in the form of capitalism-driven geopolitics expansion and imperialistic demolition of other societies’ autonomy (see: pinkwashing). <source removed as requested by the author>
