i failed to find any of "Make Capitalism Gay" homophobic. While the
"gay" angle of the article is very underdeveloped, as i understand it
Yoshie is implying that opposition parties increase their effectiveness
by embracing LGBT civil rights. Thus the call for reformist left parties
to "Make Capitalism Gay", i.e. to work to win the maximum protections
for non-heterosexual and/or trans-people available under capitalism.
It's not the most useful strategy as far as i can see - i am unconvinced
about how durable such gains are, considering that they often come at
the cost of further co-opting the LGBT movement and marginalizing
leftists and others within said movement - but i fail to see anything
homophobic about it.
p.s. as previous posters seem to find it relevant, i may as well add
that "i am writing as a queer man".
