So, look, I had London Calling stuck in my head, ok?
If the nuclear era created the nuclear family – the standard family that we sometimes call “the traditional family” – then the post nuclear era is about seeing past that. It’s about rejecting those standards, and all models for living which rest upon ideals we do not hold. What happens after your entire culture decides to define something as intimate and magical as family in patriarchal, capitalistic, heteronormative terms? What happens next? What happens if you don’t fit into that?
This is a blog about the next parts. This is a blog about trying to make family in a different image. This is a blog about queer parenting, queer family, queer life, and the ways that we desperately – and sometimes beautifully – try to live our ideals in this incomplete revolution.
