“I know I’m not a man–about that much I’m very clear, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m probably not a woman either, at least not according to a lot of people’s rules on this sort of thing. The trouble is, we’re living in a world that insists we be one or the other–a world that doesn’t bother to tell us exactly what one or the other is.”— Kate Bornstein

This site is rooted in the reality of the
Mestizaje, theories and practices of feminism[s], queer dispositions and epistemologies, women of color critiques, and liberationist theories. This site seeks to be faithful to culture gazing, and is committed to being a critical social player and critic of the dominant society, which is rooted in white hetero-patriarchy. The work found on this site is a thoughtful and critical response to the intersections of race, class, sex/gender, sexuality and culture(s). At minimum, this site is one attempt from a Ph.D. student to exhibit virtual Xicanisma!
