“Asian Latina American, queer, whose scholarship is on African American literature; this matters.”

No it doesn’t: The only thing that matters is the content, not the colour or sex of the person delivering it.

I love books too, but I have never even put any thought into the race, sex or sexuality of the writer. Identity politics and scholarship are completely incompatible with each other.
