Lorde’s Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence essay intrigued me because of her palpable frustration at trying to explain her intersectional self to White heterosexual women. The gap she attempted to bridge exists in multiple dimensions. She carried within her the effects of marginalization of the three most prominent and visible aspects of her identity: Black, woman, and gay. None of those exist in opposition to anything else. They simply are.
As for my frustration: I don’t know if second-wave feminism gave much thought to bisexuals of any gender. From what I’ve read casually in the last few years, bisexual people were erased from history the same way Lorde describes the erasure of Lesbians. Our identities are often subsumed into expectations of homosexuality or heterosexuality regardless of the self-identification of persons. There are many more examples at https://bi.org/en/famous. And yet, even Lorde and Rich completely ignored our existence in their articles.
For that matter, neither had much to say about transgender identities, either– or at least not in the essays I’ve read from them so far. I can hardly say that I’ve read their comprehensive catalogs, so it’s entirely possible that they did and that I’m just not aware of it.
1. Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, and Alfred Kinsey were all bisexual but society remembers them as gay
2. Christopher Hitchens, Eleanor Roosevelt were bisexual, as is Evan Rachel Wood. Society typically sees them as straight.
