Clare writes ambivalently about his ties to rural land and the values espoused by the white rural poor he grew up with.

Exile and Pride reminded me of Where We Stand by bell hooks , where hooks describes her experiences growing up poor and Black in the south, learning to navigate a college full of rich people and an education that planted her firmly in the middle class. But the new ground that he breaks, the new theoretical places to which he takes his readers, begins in the second part of the book, pride.

Here he embraces the identities that helped exile him from home, and weaves an argument against that exile. Clare quite masterfully connects queerness sexuality, gender with disability. He explains the ways that society creates queerness by defining and enforcing binary gender norms. In the same way, society creates disability by refusing to adapt to the differences in human bodies and minds, enforcing a single normal body type.

Clare uses the history of freak shows to demonstrate the different ways Western culture has related to people with differing bodies, whether because of impairment or race or even height. He explores how ableist and racist oppression forced many "freaks" into freak shows, at times by force and at times because of economic necessity. The "pride" chapters are full of unanswered questions, and the reader can tell Clare is just now teasing out answers for himself.

I need to read more books on disability theory, fill in the gaps of experience and learn more about bodies and the construction of ability. I need to learn specifically and broadly how to be in solidarity with those struggling for self-determination. Clare poses a theory that the abuse was, consciously or not, a tool to uphold the norms and binaries he described in previous chapters.

My father raped me for many reasons, and inside his acts of violence I learned what it meant to be female, to be a child, to live in my particular body, and those lessons served the larger power structure and hierarchy well.
