"We act as if, that being of a man or that being of a woman is actually an internal reality or something that is simply true about us; a fact about us. Actually it's a phenomenon that is being produced all the time and reproduced all the time. So to say that gender is performative is to say that nobody really is a gender from the start." ~ Judith Butler [click on this image to find two short clips exploring Butler's notion of gender performativity]

In this lecture on queer theory, Professor Paul Fry explores the work of Judith Butler in relation to Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality. Differences in terminology and methods are discussed, including Butler's emphasis on performance and Foucault's reliance on formulations such as "power-knowledge" and "the deployment of alliance." Butler's fixation with ontology is explored with reference to Levi-Strauss's concept of the raw and the cooked.

"Let's Do Some Role Reversals Shall We?" - interesting how disturbing this image can be yet when it is a woman naked on a magazine sexualized and in a bow tie we don't think twice. Gender stereotypes dictate that women conform to their roles as sexual objects and men remain appreciated for being strong, smart ect...

Lately, I´ve been feeling ...¨wrong¨ if I look too feminine or too masculine and then there are the days when I feel ugly if I look to feminine or too masculine. This town is really restrictive, they love their gender roles and so they hate me.
