“Fuck the closet as a metaphor. It is nothing more than dumb carpentry and dull hinges, an illusion that blames the oppressed for not opening the door and walking away.”
Niko Martell, of Macalester College.
Well, we’re certainly one org who just got a very compelling batch of reasons and feelings to reconsider the way we talk about the closet, how and when we use it as a metaphor, and some ways to add some needed richness when we do. One fine reminder of the many any of us get now and then that just because something is familiar and felt positive for some of us, doesn’t mean it stays sound, was ever sound, or feels like a good fit for everyone. Thanks, Niko Martell. :)
