Quotes from _The Flower and the Scorpion_ #30

"Rather than gender as a reified category, we witness gender as an aspect that needs ritual disarticulation and reformation in order to build and maintain social structure. This relates to modern Western society as explicated by Butler, in which the ritualized performance of gender takes place on a daily basis, but contrasts with the masking of the performance from the performers (except in clearly delineated subcultural forms like the performance of drag)."
