On Rev. Emily C. Heath's Barbers, Gender, & Why $5 Matters, in which she discusses being charged $5 in a barbershop more than a man for the same haircut, noting that it's a queer issue. Some Projectors said it's not a queer issue. Various explanations were offered as to why not: gender discrimination, sex discrimination, poor shopping skills.
Jessica Max Stein's comment said it is a queer issue.
"Queer" denotes more than desire. The Rev's queer/butch gender expression means that she trangresses gender norms and assumptions in a barbershop, that her "simple haircut" complicates the assumptions behind a "man's" haircut (simple) and a woman's (an extra $5 worth of effort).
I will never stop being surprised at how many Bilerico comments boil down to, "I don't want to be an ally to this person! Our struggles don't overlap!" when so frequently they do.
What say you Projectors? Is the Reverend's bad hair experience a queer issue? What is a "queer" issue, anyway -- is it anything affecting people not conforming to sexual stereotypes, even heterosexuals, or is it something more specific to the gay community in the realm of being gay and gayness? Is there a problem with lumping all gay people into the larger group that we might call "queer", or are the gays just one member of the big happy queer umbrella family?
