This blog is dedicated to the disruption of hegemony with the proposed end goal of diversities in complex and relatively harmonious interaction and balance both within society and within the individual.
“What we might remember is that to be against something is precisely not to be in a position of transcendence: to be against something is, after all, to be in an intimate relation with that which one is against” (Ahmed, 2004).
Unity and loyalty do not depend on absolute homogeneity. Maybe it's the American obsession with race that makes it so difficult for us as a nation to get rid of fear our that difference implies, even guarantees, animosity and opposition. But denial of difference is not the road to harmony. It is the road only to a kind of false unity that is so fragile it will splinter at a touch. (Hine & Thompson, p. 316, 2009)
