That's because pro-choicers, people of color, queers, and so on are _taken for granted_ as ready-made progressives or _dismissed_ as 'middle-class' (contradictory as these two thoughts may seem) in the thoughts of many lbo-talkers. That's why there is no discussion about how to talk + appeal to the working-class people who fall into one or more of the above categories. The only thing that lbo-talkers have to say about us is that 'identity politics,' whose political economy they do have yet to theorize, is BAD. No productive + constructive discussion. Worse, in some of their minds, we are to be totally _left out_, since our presence is perceived to be alienating for the 'majority' that exists only in their dreams. (Shades of the 'silent majority' discourse here?)
And when what is thought of as 'women's issues,' 'black issues,' 'queer issues,' etc. do show up in their minds, they are there only as 'bargaining chips,' to be used in the process of 'dialogue' only to be compromised away. Hell, we are compromised away even before the onset of 'dialogue,' judging by what most lbo-talkers say here!
And anti-imperialism is definitely no-no. It might not play well in Peoria! (It played well in Columbus, OH, though, largely because of a coalition _we_ built--activists from women's groups, peace & justice groups, Arab-Americans, people of color, anti-racist anarchist youths, Greens, and so on. Those who disagree with us are free to try and persuade fundamentalists, militia men, anti-choicers, etc. to join us. They are very very welcome as long as they oppose American Imperialism. Go ahead. Make my day.)
