The Autostraddle Roundtable: Is there a Lesbian Generation Gap?

“To many young gay people, the passage of Prop 8 was shocking but not alarming,” writes Mark Harris in New York Magazine’s “The Gay Generation Gap,” published two weeks ago in the magazine’s special Pride Week Section. Harris continues: “It has jolted them into action, but one suspects it’s out of a Milk-fed belief that identity-politics activism can be ennobling and cool.” Ouch! One suspects that one is being unfair to us! One suspects that if we’ve managed to make activism “cool,” then that’s a BIG SCORE! — but wait. Before you get too excited (as we did), there’s no need to be offended ’cause this shit ain’t about you, woman! … so we decided to ask ourselves: Is there a Lesbian Generation Gap?” Special roundtable participants include Grace Chu of Grace the Spot, Haviland Stillwell and Riese’s Mom!
