do u ever just get an essay prompt like
1) Butler asks the question: Is it possible that a gender can preexist its regulations, or is gender formed under subjection? Are regulations just forms of subjection that creates gender? Butler further writes “to become subject to a regulation is also to become subjectivated by it”, yet gender is susceptible to change due to the contigent nature of its practices or instantiations. Explain.
2) Terms such as “gender blending” or “transgender” suggest that it is possible for gender to move beyond the so called “naturalness” or the binary. So, if the restrictive, binary view of gender is a regulatory operation “that naturalizes the hegemonic instance and forecloses the thinkability of its disruption.” Is it possible to destabilize it, if so how? What role does language play in the destabilization and/or reproduction of the binaries?
3) What is the import of the Queer movement in relation to the LGBTA liberation movements, what ideological and practical problems are posed by the creation of new “identities.” How does identity factors in recognition? Are identities necessary as organizing principles for coalition forming? How can new signifiers of gender identifications be simultaneously inclusive and exclusive?
and just wanna drink a whole bottle of wine and go to sleep?
