Quoting Zoe Leonard

"Why is it that the work of minority artists is always examined for signs of difference? Why is it always us--the dykes and fags, the women artists, the black poets, the Asian playwrights--who are asked about our sexuality or our race? What does being a white man have to do with Robert Ryman's work or Jeff Koons's? What does being heterosexual have to do with Picasso's? I don't mind being a woman artist. And as a lesbian I'm as out as can be. But it's the double standard that bugs me."
