I agree about perspective. Perspective is precisely what people do have to offer when their identities are acknowledged.

I also agree with some of the other respondents that pieces of one's identity, such as gender or class, do not have to be paraded around -- but they should be acknowledged. Acknowledgment and flag-waving are not the same. (Then again, if we never have any flag-wavers, we hardly ever see much progress...)

This is a very big topic, and we're only exploring one part of it here, so feel free to parse it out into separate threads if you would like to discuss it from another angle.
