Queer's Final Frontier
"As Western homoerotic desire becomes increasingly sanitized, acceptable, benign, commodified, co-opted, and contained under the aegises of consumerism, liberal pluralism, and gay marriage, it seems to me that the resilience of transgender panics across a panoply of social and political divides demonstrates the continuing centrality of the transgender/cisgender divide in contemporary culture (to reformulate the famous opening line of Sedgwick's Epistemology of the Closet)—this may be where “queer’s” bottom/foundational line now lies."
