  10. The [Puerto Rico] pro-statehood folks have an vested interest in keeping the island as economically dependent and culturally bound to the U.S. as possible… The same is for the pro-colony folks who occasionally appropriate nationalist, independentista rhetoric to appeal to progressive (and cynically patriotic) electoral elements (e.g., the new municipal slogan of San Juan is “Ciudad, Patria” - City, Motherland - but the mayor is a member of the pro-colony party!).

  11. There is certainly an insecurity [by transmen] that they will always be confined to queer social and sexual circles as a result of being trans*. This insecurity is understandable in the context of straight-identified people typically conflating bodies with gender - which the trans* person does not want to feel rejected as a result of this. However, this insecurity, in practice, translates to sentiments of anti-queerness and a desire to consume and create submissive women in order to validate their masculinity.
