When discussing the first part of Chapter 3, it was very clear that Ahmed targeted the downfall of queer unhappiness to the sadistic views of general society and towards negative familial influences. In each of the brief narratives she shared with us, Sarah would give us an overview of what was going on and then explain the reason for the unhappiness caused. It just goes to show you how much happiness really does play on other people in the sense that society is unhappy with the queer lifestyle, so it really does bring down the happiness levels of queer individuals, and furthermore it proves how selfish society is. Just because something like being gay/queer is different, rare, not the "norm" does not justify for discrimination to be imposed. It's wrong and immoral. Just think about it for a moment and really try to imagine what these people go through everyday--it's a haze of judgmental remarks. Ahmed truly captures somber ambiance illustrated in her text with such a wide range of examples out there in queer literature and film; it provides the foundation for resentment aimed at all the prejudiced heterosexuals and the emotions experienced by these queer victims. Sarah opens the eyes of both readers: to queer people, explaining how significant and ubiquitous unhappiness is throughout this minority population and to heterosexuals, exploiting their cruel and narrow minded perspectives and negative intentions towards their homosexual peers and family members.
