"They need to pathologise me,” he snaps. “They need to give me a disease. They need to say I’m self-loathing. Because it’s the only reason they can give that identity politics hasn’t worked in this case. I’m gay. I dress and I look and I act like I ought to have politics X and I have politics Y, and they can’t work it out. But it’s not difficult to work out. It’s really easy. It’s that identity politics is bulls***. It’s garbage. It’s total nonsense. It’s not based on truth or logic or anything else; it’s based on hurt feelings and victimhood.”
Fagburn is a Richard Smith production. Now widely acknowledged as Britain's leading homosexual libertarian communist absurdist thinker, Fagburn is for a ruthless gay criticism of everything existing. He has been banging his head against a brick wall since April 2010, and is spokesbot for the totally made-up Gay Media Watch. Always grateful for tip-offs about stuff. Contact fagburn (@) safetycat.org. or @fagburn. Legal bit and small print. Follow me on Twitter @fagburn. Or don't. I'm not that fussed, really. Fagburn was nominated for Publication Of The Year in the 2013 Stonewall Awards - so NERR! He is currently not writing a book.
