3/6: pleasure

Jouissance: The Gash of Bliss” – Kathryn Bond Stockton

If per chance it didn’t exist, queers would invent it. Along with irony, bliss is a quintessential queer accouterment. It’s hedonistic and wedded to pain. It’s clearly buoyant, yet it is dark. [….] It’s the perversion everyone shares, no one knows, and, with its shadows and tied to loss, society denies in favor of “pleasure.” (102)
