Flirtational politics

dorightwoman:

“There can be no stable ‘identity politics’ if identity is a state of perpetual becoming. And if differences are uncontrollable and identities are protean, it may be necessary to embrace a politics that is pulsational, equivocal, ‘flirtational.’

Many may find the idea of ‘flirtational’ politics a bit unsettling because it’s assumed that politics must be unified to accomplish liberation. But it may be time to radically redescribe liberation itself. ‘What organize, imprison, [and] censure,’ Cixous reminds us, ‘are models, ready-made structures into which one pours all that is still fermenting in order to congeal it.’ It is our unquestioned models that enslave us. They force us to coagulate, like the fat that rises to the top of the soup and hardens, unable to disperse, disseminate, dispense itself […]

A flirtational politics would devote itself to affirmative forgetting so that its constituents might laugh again, so that they might act rather than react.” 

— Diane Davis, “‘Breaking Up’ [at] Phallocracy.” Affirmative forgetting, flirting, laughing, resisting coagulation, etc, all of the above, yes.

"Feminist shark theory."

“Feminist shark theory.”

- Every Christmas at the little brick church uptown they have a caroling and cider night and then everyone stands on Park Avenue and the pastor flips a switch and you see the fairy lights on the trees turn on, tree by tree, like a thought shooting ahead. This is like that.

"The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I know I said that I could, but I just can’t compromise…"

“The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I know I said that I could, but I just can’t compromise myself like that. I mean, I’m an emotional person. I feel things, and I need to be able to get upset and talk about how I’m feeling. That’s who I am, and I can’t change it, and I don’t want to. And the thing is, you knew that. You knew it, and you still pursued me. Because you want something with me. You just aren’t strong enough to have it, which in a way makes you a coward. And the saddest part is that one day, you’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna realize what you missed and it’s gonna be too late.”

I believe I mentioned that making connections would be a major activity in 2012. I will be making many of them with my mind. Others will come in various ways, for example through Michelle.

Trademarks from September 1970, by Vito Acconci, scanned from Avalanche magazine, Fall 1972. Acconci’s text: “Biting myself: biting as much of my body as I can reach. Applying printers’ ink to the bites; stamping bite-prints on various surfaces.”
