This essay examines the potential for using affective connectivities to rethink neoliberal stratification. Because discourses surrounding queer suicide reproduce problematic assumptions not only about race, class, and gender but also about bodily health, debility, and capacity, I link Dan Savage's “It Gets Better” project and related discussions about the recent spate of queer suicides to broader social justice issues about disability as well as theoretical concerns in animal studies and posthumanist studies.
