I had an organic awareness of class divides, like most poor people, and a healthy distrust of the rich, as well as a distaste with the greed of bourgeois culture. It didn’t seem fair for a minority to have such exorbitant wealth, while my mother struggled to pay the bills with two jobs. When I became politically active I was drawn to radical feminist and queer politics, because they were both so empowering.
