    1. Mais lorsque je m’abandonnais à ces exquises déchéances, je n’oubliais jamais qu’il s’agissait d’un jeu. Pour de vrai, je ne me soumettais à personne : j’étais, et je demeurerais toujours mon propre maître.

    1. life as the reigning queen of Rupaul's Drag Race

      Certainly, it would be interesting to discuss how normative male domination doesn't leave place for posthuman drags deemed by society as "otherness". Otherness would not be the right term to convince the multiple identities embodied by drags. I think you can challenge the relationality between multiple others in so may ways (inanimate objects, cyborgs...), because posthuman drags' life are diverse (multiple characters). There is even maybe some self-styling notion.

      Maybe, you can also introduce some limitations of the posthuman drags boundaries.

    1. Is the freedom of the individual served by neoliberalism? Centrality of the state for this freedom, which NL denies. “neoliberal thinkers deliberately sustain the fiction that ‘the market economy’ is a natural and spontaneous order that must be placed beyond politics … The question of how authority can be something other than domination and private power shaped the ideas and action of those who built the tradition of constitutional democracy in western societies from the 16th to the 20th centuries … basic needs were those that had to be met before the individual could practically enact the status of a free subject or person. It was such needs provision that made it possible for individuals to be both personally secure and to enjoy an equality of opportunity to develop as individuals free to discover their talents and gifts … the representation of market society as a spontaneous order is pitched to the punters while, within the tent of the doctrine’s initiates, it is fully understood that the state has to be both a strong state, and to be re-engineered in order to impose neoliberal institutional design.” YeatmanFreedom.pdf
