    TEXT º READER Le corps lesbienFREE Le corps lesbienSo you might be a little thrown off by this title from mebut it's really as subversive a book about language it's structure and feminism as you can get Much less lesbian when translated to English from the original French it manages to be both beautiful and disgusting God it's so good

    TEXT º READER Le corps lesbienFREE Le corps lesbieni love how monstrous gruesome and utopian this book is love that lesbian utopia is violently passionate because that is what being a lesbian means a violent exile from the symbolic order where subjectivity is simultaneously impossible yet always excessive i am thinking of how current cultural representations of lesbianism overwhelmingly feminine and all too prett
