HD 10180 is a sun with a bunch of planets. So far there are seven known planets and two that are probably there. The only one in the habitable zone is a gas giant, but maybe it has a moon with an atmosphere that we could go live on.
By ‘intoxication culture’, I mean the entire set of institutions and behaviors that establish alcohol drinking and drug use as community norms. The term assumes that people’s decisions on whether or how much to drink or use are based not just on their individual preferences but also on our collective context of norms around intoxication and community structures that uphold them. I also want to emphasize that an individual’s decision around whether and how much to drink or use is not a neutral personal choice but has community-wide implications. Within this framework, use and abuse are mutually reinforcing patterns, each equally necessary to maintain the status quo.
My experience as a queer guy frames my understanding of alcohol and drug use in queer communities, so my discussion is weighted towards the experiences of gay, bi, and queer men. Lesbian culture differs significantly from gay/bi male culture in terms of social and sexual norms; it is also shaped by sexist oppression. These factors each change queer women’s relationships to substance use. I also don’t intend this article to generalize the experience of transgender folks of various sexual orientations, since I neither identify as transgender nor do I understand all of the ways that gender identity and transphobia specifically impact substance abuse.
The absence of alcohol-free spaces weighs even more heavily on queer youth, who are legally excluded from most of the few venues available for us to meet outside of major cities. Since we’re not allowed into most queer spaces until we’re eighteen or twenty-one, many of us suffer our most intense isolation during the volatile coming-out years when we most desperately need community support and affirmation. This isolation fuels the astronomical levels of alcohol and drug use among queer youth, patterns which are often solidly in place by the time that we’re legally allowed to participate in some aspects of intoxication culture. When we finally obtain access to the mysterious world of the bars and clubs, we more often than not abandon the spaces we’ve carved out for ourselves with other youth to soak up these new worlds and the possibilities they present.
