However, as posited by the authors, that argument. It also depends on the psychoanalytic field gehero identifying, often too quickly, in the field of queer studies – its practices and discourses – the constituting or reinforcing references of community identity politics.

On the contrary, according to the author: Indeed, sinceeven before they were referred to and defined as queer 3the psychoanalyst already highlighted the importance of the Freudian field welcoming the biopplitica gay and lesbian studiesparticularly contesting the university subjects 4 they presented, a contestation in relation to which psychoanalysis now seems to be positioned more as an biopoliica than as an agent.

From these observations, Allouch poses the following questions: Perhaps the reflection on the place it occupies in relation to bippolitica field of queer studies and practices can be now considered a privileged pathway for psychoanalysis to better define its terms.

This use was particularly visible in the occasion of discussions regarding PaCS in France in the turn of the century and, more precisely, in the arguments that, in the name of Lacanian categories, defended positions contrary to the civil recognition of homosexual unions.

That relationship is also real. Inhowever, even though Morel continues to insist in the difference between psychoanalytic theories on sexuation and gender theory, her references to those studies attest to the fact that psychoanalysis has broadened its rapprochement to this field, including queer theories, based on other conceptions of gender, not those marked by identity categories.

Similarly, even though she highlights the differences between psychoanalytical and Foucaultian conceptions of sex, the author also highlights in which measure her own formulations align themselves with the denouncement of identity syndrome and the injunction of identification with sexuality and its different forms as undertaken by Foucault.


In the first book, her references to the field are restricted to theories in which the category of gender is conceived in terms of identity subjective or culturally constructed.

The emphasis on the necessary binary of sexuation stands out in this clarification. We should now make it clear that the context in which this emphasis happens, i. As specified by the author, this postulation would have been based, throughout history, first in theories and treatments for homosexuality based on an equivalence between object choice and sexual identification and, more recently, in theories and treatments of transsexuality based on the idea of a natural error.

In the second book, the question comes up again. Morel interrogates us in the following terms: Regarding this, the author states:.

We can point out two important moments in which this opportunity was offered to psychoanalysis: It is, therefore, towards this approach that we now turn. Go, accused one, pursue your fate! The world that you invoke was not made for you. You were not made for it.

In this vast universe, where every grief has its place, you shall search in vain for a corner where you may shelter your own, for it would be a blemish there. It overturns all the laws of nature and preciaco. In the beginning of their youth, Herculine is ripped, by the modern dimorphic epistemefrom the old, monosexual, world where they lived. Herculine exists in the void between two frames for sexual representation, as giopolitica their body had fallen in the gap separating two divergent fictions of the self.

As observed by the author: Preciado is the beatrzi that the philosopher – until recently known as Beatriz Preciado – started adopting in On his own words: His body appears, then, in the essay, as the essential political resistance space.

Throughout the 20 th Century, however, with the invention of the biochemical notion of hormones and the pharmaceutical development of synthetic molecules for commercial use, a new regime of sex production and government takes shape. In the form of caps, through the mouth, or through the pores. Preciado presents a history of this regime, which would have originated in the early s, when the first molecules of progesterone and estrogen were obtained and then commercialized as synthetic hormones.

The pharmapornographic regime then establishes its authority, transforming the concepts of femininity and masculinity in material realities genedo manifest themselves in chemical substances, synthetic hormones, commercialized molecules. While beahriz disciplinary regime of the 19th Century considered sex as natural, definitive, immutable and transcendental, the pharmapornographic gender seems to biopolitjca synthetic, malleable, variable, open to transformation and mimicable, as well as technically producible and reproducible.


Bodies, pharmacological networks and communication networks constitute, then, the political laboratories for constructing and deconstructing the self. Or, even, a hacker of their own body, a hacker of gender, a sexual hacker.

In the last few pages we discussed two books: Herculine Barbina fundamental reference in queer studies, and Testo Junkiethe most recent contribution to these studies published in Brazil. We should now question in what measure putting these books side by side can help us advance a few steps in the path towards articulating the psychoanalytic formulations on sexuation, articulated by Lacan in the early s, and the queer practices and discourses put forward since the s.

In first place, it seems possible to see these two books as fundamental archives – or crucial moments – of the history of the political production of sexual bodies.

In each one, a specific modality or regime of power is revealed, intervening through a set of medical technologies prexiado investing in bodies and of legal devices for controlling civil records. In each one, a particular rationality through which bodies can recognize themselves or be recognized in terms of male and female or other terms is revealed.

At the same team, each of these books tells a story of resistance. Their resistance even leads them to the extreme end of suicide. In his time, Lacan was led to articulate and highlight the terms of that impossibility not only through a rigorous logic argument, but also through a critical interlocution with what some practices and discourses strongly supported in the identity category of gender were then supported.
