This chapter examines how states produce particular raced-gendered-sexualized identities, in ways that simultaneously create the dominant and the subordinate. It describes how racialization and gendering operate through microtechniques of power to create forms of inequality "written on the body," producing women and men as members of particular races, classes, ethnicities, nationalities, and sexualities. The chapter deals with the related problems of omission and examines the caricatures of identity politics associated with conservative, liberal, and radical politics. It examines how claims to secure and protect the nation are used by particular male leaders to create and sustain interior frontiers that accredit some as full members of the community while placing others outside the boundaries of political belonging. The chapter explores regulation of marriage migration and the emergence of new racial codes and criteria of citizenship, sexual terror as a means to perpetuate women's subordination, and political homophobia as a means to position gay and lesbian citizens as threats to national security.
