butler:
drag is not the putting on of a gender that belongs properly to some other group, ie: an act of expropriation or appropriation that assumes that gender is a the rightful property of sex, that "masculine" belongs to "male" and "feminine" belongs to "female." there is no "proper" gender, a gender proper to one sex rather than another which is in some sense that sex's cultural property.
