Alienated sex

Saturday, December 6, 2008 | |

"Sometimes my sex seemed to me another being entirely, a stupid animal living parasitacally upon me, swelling and dwindling according to autonomous appetites, anchored to my flesh with claws I could not detach. Why do I have to carry you about from woman to woman, I asked: simply because you were born without legs? Would it make any difference to you if you were rooted in a cat or a dog instead of me?" 

-J.M. Coetzee, Waiting for the Barbarians

yeni bir icerikle yeni bir blog! aman efendim hayirlara vesile olsun :)) -gec kaldim bi miktar, farkindayim.

coetze'nin alintisina tipatip benzer bir pasaj, sartre'in bulanti'sinda da var...sanirim evrensel bir yabancilik hissi bu. aslinda rasyonel ego ile irrasyonel durtulerin mekani alt-ego arasindaki musabakasinin ifadesi bir miktar.
