Abstract

A great deal of analytic work has been done by feminists in different parts of the world on demystifying the state’s will to represent itself as disinterested, neutered, and otherwise benign. [note deleted]…Much less work has been done, however, on elaborating the processes of heterosexualization at work within the state apparatus and charting the ways in which they are constitutively paradoxical: That is, how heterosexuality is at once necessary to the state’s ability to constitute and imagine itself, while simultaneously marking a site of its own instability.
