if that’s not an essay about why queer theory should be avoided at all costs, I don’t know what is.

Reading the quotes from Rudy's article, I kept thinking it was a stealth attack on queer theory. For example

“Queer theory has schooled me in ways that make the question of what counts as sex seem rather unintelligible. How do we cordon off sexual desire from all the other desires that move our lives? What does sex mean? Do I think I'm having sex with my dogs when they kiss my face? How do we know beforehand what sex is?”
