Nietzsche for me. Relativism does not make sense and we have known this for thousands of years. You cannot make the statement "everything is an opinion; there are no facts" mean anything no matter how you try to weasel about with language. The only actual meaning it has is that peoples beliefs are biased by their self interest among other things, which everyone already knew.

correct me if i’m wrong but is his take on rape that it is about power and not a sexual impulse? why can’t these things go hand in hand? if it were merely about power than why not just physically assault a woman?

Not really. Remember, he was obsessed with SYSTEMS of power and control. Any individual rape might be motivated by any number of things, but he tried to look at 'rape' in the systematic sense (mass-rapes during wartime, for example) in terms of a broader scheme of state control.

it’s not feminist to say most rape is motivated by an internal insecurity of power as a continuation of state violence, it’s a blatant observation of reality. If rape did not carry those connotations they would just be coomers who watched anime. Feminism came far after this basic fact…

True, true, but Nietzsche is hyperbolic. He is not dogmatic. And besides, I’ve seen two similar quotes attributed to him. One is “there are no moral facts, only moral interpretations of facts” (which seems unobjectionable) and “there are no facts, only interpretations” (less sound), but I feel like the second is a misguided truncation of the first. Anyway, I may be wrong

It's just the logical end product of philosophical idealism, and more specifically postmodern philosophy. Since language is regarded as an arbitrary ascription overlaying an absence, there being no real essential self, we can use words whichever way we please. The issue with Butler's argument is that words may be arbitrary and we can change which words we use but there still are underlying biological realities which are not necessarily neatly separable from the social categories. By making words and language arbitrary they have ironically elevated words and identity categories to the level of Godhood.

How can you claim to be a pessimist if your suffering is self-imposed. You’re just a retard. And it’s like being high and you have sudden enthusiasm for the world like you’re experiencing everything for the first time again. There’s also tunnel vision that keeps you going from one thing to the next like you’re living stream of consciousness. Also lots of synchronicity and people acting weird around you like women peacocking directly at you and talking about what you’re thinking. Idk if you can have a bad high like shrooms.

I'm not wrong. I'm not saying words themselves have meaning. It's the fact that words and letters have no meaning in themselves but only endlessly defer towards other signs which makes it so it doesn't matter how we use them. I can for example make up a word like Differance.... Our use of words of course will never reveal anything true about things in themselves, following Derrida, but since they are arbitrary well now I can just say whatever. It won't be True, of course, but neither will anything expressed via language. And so one can see how this leads to Butler's formulation. Linguistic binaries, like gender, have no real meaning in themselves and no reference to real nature but obscure the true diversity contained within these linguistic categories. So we're free to change them as we like. Read more Derrida.

>> No.19548583

hahah buddy, you're abusing the meaning of 'arbitrary'. words themselves are arbitrary but the interior content is not. derrida points out the functioning of this metaphysics of language - that words are arbitrary because they efface themselves before a fully present and accessible intelligible content (meaning). his argument about presence of meaning being deferred doesn't suddenly permit everyone to make shit up because it still borrows from a shared language. it's just a functional view of that shared system that must remain within that system because there would be no ability for me to even converse with you without it.
for 'differance' it is a fortuitous pun because it combines the two meanings he wants to convey in a single arbitrary signifier. it is complicated by the fact that it functions as a non-concept because it does not immediately restore the presence of an unfolding logic as this exploitation is not proper to Logic but still resembles it in function. it's not just simply a freely changed content.

It is deferred, and that's the peril of communication we an never know if our words are gonna be understood.

I mean this rather loosely, of course. The problem is that people see Jews like Butler attacking "Western [insert thing here]" and then take it as a philosophical attack rather than a racial one. It's racial. It is fundamentally racial. As a Jew, Butler wants gentiles to be reduce to subhuman slave status. Gentiles are below Jews, and every second that this belief isn't reflected in reality is a grievous offense to them. Thus, as she interprets all of her works through this lens, we shall too. "Masculinity" and "femininity" are very real things. Butler isn't trying to deconstruct them. Rather, she's simply denying the subhumans something that they should not have. "Gender" and "sexuality" are things for humans (re: Jews). They're very real things with a concrete existence (and thus, she reifies a form of idealism, something that you actually point out), it's just a crime that gentiles are involved in them.

Butler, likewise, absolutely does not deny the essential self. She very much does. This is in comparison to, say, Foucault, or Deleuze and Guattari, who reject such a thing, and are proponents of system that CAN be used to justify absolutely heinous degeneracy, but they also CAN be used to justify things like Giga-based National Socialism. Rather, Butler requires an essential self to be present when the Shiksa Goddess is reduced to a mere economic unit. Butler is, fundamentally, attacking gentile women by reducing them from women to mere female laborers.

All things can be deconstructed; all things can be constructed. If you aren't deconstructing and constructing yourself, someone else is. Yes, you are correct, Butler is trying to deconstruct White society. The question is, what does she want to construct in its place?
