This article uses this spirit of queer theory and uses a non-linear narrative structure to take us away from the usual course of academic writing to contest some significant aspects of management scholarship and academic identity. In addition to using queer theory as an analytical methodology, I rely on the theoretical space opened by the term postcolonial storytelling by telling stories that are inscribed in and intersect with the material architecture within organizations. These stories also act as metaphors that open up analytical space to talk about key issues related to postcolonial academic identity and queer theory. Thus, these stories simultaneously lament the lack of water in the western toilet, critique the position of God in academic scholarship, discuss the great toilet wars of Asia, and unpack the imaginary symptoms of queer theorists.
