"Being queer, that is not straight-line, not belonging, tells me that gender is only the beginning of the story, not the last word. I like some ambiguity. One of the exciting - and dangerous - things about email is that we have no way of discerning gender, and that upsets a lot of our notions about innate masculine or feminine traits. Listen, I don't want a unisex world. I like it the way it is, but I think we should have more fun with it, and the fun and the experiment is what Queer Culture is all about. To that extent, my own experience interfaces with my work."
