Butler and Drag


"In this sense, the 'reality' of heterosexual identies is performatively constituted through an imitation that sets itself up as the origin and the ground of all imitations. In other words, heterosexuality is always in the process of imitating and approximating its own phantasmatic idealization of itself- and failing." (Butler 313)
