Example text

A body that is permeable, that transmits in a circuit, that opens itself up rather than seals itself off, that is prepared to respond as well as to initiate, that does not revile its masculinity…or virilize it…would involve a quite radical rethinking of male sexual morphology. (Grosz 1994:201) Queering globalization/“the universality of intercourse” Rethinking capitalist morphology in order to liberate economic development from the hegemonic grasp of capitalist identity is indeed a radical project.

No telos governs and completes it. Self-realization is not its trajectory. 15 Such a body is undoubtedly queer. And just like the queer economy, where things don’t line up and come together, where the market and the commodity do not necessarily signify capitalism and capitalism does not necessarily signify dominance, the queer body is a place of uncertainty and possibility. Gender, for example, does not necessarily accord with male or female embodiment, clothing, object choice, preferences for certain organs and orifices (or neither), identification, forms of dominance, self-presentation and manner (feminine or effeminate), SM top or bottom, or even with itself.

In a “deconstructive turn,” the subordinated terms of these oppositions take their rightful place at the very heart of the dominant ones. Among other things, my recent work has involved a kind of turning inside out and outside in of the sexed body, questioning how the subject’s exteriority is psychically constructed, and conversely, how the processes of social inscription of the body’s surface construct for it a psychical interior. In other words, I have attempted to problematize the opposition between the inside and the outside by looking at the outside of the body from the point of view of the inside, and looking at the inside of the body from the point of view of the outside, thus re-examining and questioning the distinction between biology and culture, exploring the way in which culture constructs the biological order in its own image, the way in which the psychosocial simulates and produces the body as such.
