Heterosexism/homophobia is based on Misogyny and anti-woman sentiments. Note that lesbians, so long as they are titillating to males, are acceptable. Gay men are not. Why? because gay men's bodies are penetrated and penetration is seen, by patriarchy, as a FEMALE experience and rite of passage. We become "women" upon the handing over of our virginity (virgin originally meant a woman NOT owned by and controlled by men, it now means a woman who has not had sex with a man... which is the same) to males. Also, the patriarchy requires patriarchs for its maintenance. Women are birthing the agents of patriarchy daily, males, and trying to keep those soldiers on our team as our loving sons. The appearance of Gay males is anti-patriarchy in that, gay men are NOT going to be sexually dominating women into submission to patriarchy. Gay men are agents of matriarchy, or rather they SHOULD be. It was the eunuch and the gay man who were the priests in the temple. It was the eunuch and the gay man who was deemed fit to be around the High Priestess or Queen without being a sexual threat to her.
Patriarchy requires agents (male) to do its bidding and gatekeepers (female) to police the herd. The poling by the female of the gay male is women enacting patriarchy and sewing into their own oppression. This is one of the ways that females become active agents of patriarchy. (agent read: assistant, co-conspirator, complicit in the oppression of women.)
Racism is based on misogyny and anti-woman sentiments. Note that RACE is a NEW concept and means of oppression globally. American introduction of the codification and legalization of race recognition happened in and around 1619. It is how the patriarchy established itself as white male dominant and exclusive in the divisions of power. It wasn't enough to have patriarchy, we needed a new layer of it to address the depraved greed of the dominant culture.
All of these isms and systems of oppression are TIED TO the original form of oppression: that of the Womb, the Yoni and the Feminine to the patriarchal realm of male dominance, rulership and abuse.
The resolution of male supremacy of women will bring about the END of all supremacy. The first slave was the female/feminine. Her liberation is central to the global change in how we view oppression and the intersections it creates.
