Gender: Whose Fantasy?

What I am proposing in my talk is, that we take the fear of destruction seriously, since it will help to understand the attack on gender, the projection on this called gender as an instrument or a cause of familiar and civilizational destruction. The opponents of gender fear destruction and identify gender studies or its so called ideology as: destructive. There are good reasons, as I’ve said, to fear destruction, it’s happening all around us. Perhaps it is this fear that takes form in phantasy and that gender becomes the name for that phantasmatic cristallization of fear.
