1/6: identity

“Precarious Sexualities: Queer Challenges to Psychoanalytic and Social Identity Categorization” – Alice Kuzniar

“O lord, let me be the person my dog thinks I am.” […] [T]he dog loves us apart from our identity–whether this is defined by gender, race, class, or age. To be so loved also means we are loved, in Bersani’s terms, for our virtual, ideal self that the dog perceives, responds to, indeed creates in us, freeing us from arbitrary social identities. (72)
