2/6: desire

“Missing Something? Queer Desire” – Lara Farina

[T]he endorsement of a model of eros based on narcissism raises some troubling ethical questions. To say that a loving relation must be based on a recognition of sameness outside of the self risks promoting a kind of affective clannishness, and homosexual communities are hardly immune to an ethically dubious policing of the boundaries of the self-same, as Jaspir Puar (2007) has demonstrated in her recent work on “homonationalism.” (91)
