Humanities Student Surprised Judith Butler Not Good Pillow Talk

After an otherwise successful second date, 3rd year humanities student Jennifer Flanagan was surprised to discover that Judith Butler’s classic study on performative gender theory was not a welcome topic for post-coital discussion. Instead of being engaged in a nuanced sociological debate about identity politics, Jennifer was promptly informed that she could go to sleep or get out.

‘I don’t understand,’ Jennifer complained to Flipside, ‘he has an earring, how can he not be interested in transgressive and divergent forms of masculinity? Surely he must recognise that subversive bodily acts destabilise the naturalised categories of identity and desire – it can’t just be a fashion statement.’

Other rejected topics of conversation that night included cultural appropriation, the commoditisation of women through marriage and the possibility of getting brunch the next day. Jennifer’s anthropological blog post on the difficulties of modern dating goes live at midnight
