Freud! Sexual theory, inversion

http://www.bartleby.com/278/1.html
I think people don’t read Freud because they assume they know what he will say.

Stay tuned for traps, queers, degeneracy and genetic aspersions.

It’s like asking a Communist for a good book on capitalism. Psychodynamics is the natural enemy of postmodernism. Everything you do is loaded with meaning, nothing you say matters. It isn’t perfect but it has use. It digs down into motive, unlike, say, the gay triangle of CBT, where thoughts magically pop out of nowhere ~dynamic unconsciousness screams into the void~

“Degeneration.—This term degeneration is open to the objections which may be urged against the promiscuous use of this word in general. It has in fact become customary to designate all morbid manifestations not of traumatic or infectious origin as degenerative. Indeed, Magnan’s classification of degenerates makes it conceivable that the highest general configuration of nervous accomplishment need not exclude the application of the concept of degeneration. Under the circumstances it is a question what use and what new content the meaning of “degeneration” still possesses. It would seem more appropriate not to speak of degeneration: (1) Where there are not many marked deviations from the normal; (2) where the capabilities and the capacity to exist do not in general appear markedly impaired. 6  15″

Hello, DSM 5.

n.b. The ICD is the DSM only stronger. It’s a huge, honest list of insurance codes. They don’t pretend to care about you, pay the man and take your pills.

A momentary pause for memes that get funnier the more psychodynamics you know.

     

“Degeneration.—This term degeneration is open to the objections which may be urged against the promiscuous use of this word in general. It has in fact become customary to designate all morbid manifestations not of traumatic or infectious origin as degenerative. Indeed, Magnan’s classification of degenerates makes it conceivable that the highest general configuration of nervous accomplishment need not exclude the application of the concept of degeneration. Under the circumstances it is a question what use and what new content the meaning of “degeneration” still possesses. It would seem more appropriate not to speak of degeneration: (1) Where there are not many marked deviations from the normal; (2) where the capabilities and the capacity to exist do not in general appear markedly impaired. 6  15  That the inverted are not degenerates in this qualified sense can be seen from the following facts:  16  1. The inversion is found among persons who otherwise show no marked deviation from the normal.  17  2. It is found also among persons whose capabilities are not disturbed, who on the contrary are distinguished by especially high intellectual development and ethical culture. 7  18  3. If one disregards the patients of one’s own practice and strives to comprehend a wider field of experience, he will in two directions encounter facts which will prevent him from assuming inversions as a degenerative sign.  19  (a) It must be considered that inversion was a frequent manifestation among the ancient nations at the height of their culture. It was an institution endowed with important functions. (b) It is found to be unusually prevalent among savages and primitive races, whereas the term degeneration is generally limited to higher civilization (I. Bloch). Even among the most civilized nations of Europe, climate and race have a most powerful influence on the distribution of, and attitude toward, inversion. 8  20″

Nurture theorists got nothing on this man.

“Innateness.—Only for the first and most extreme class of inverts, as can be imagined, has innateness been claimed, and this from their own assurance that at no time in their life has their sexual impulse followed a different course. The fact of the existence of two other classes, especially of the third, speaks against the assumption of its being congenital. Hence, the propensity of those holding this view to separate the group of absolute inverts from the others results in the abandonment of the general conception of inversion. Accordingly in a number of cases the inversion would be of a congenital character, while in others it might originate from other causes.…..

The Relation of Bisexuality.—Since the time of Frank Lydston, Kiernan, and Chevalier, a new stream of thought has been introduced for the explanation of the possibility of sexual inversion. This contains a new contradiction to the popular belief which assumes that a human being is either a man or a woman.”

Unfortunately, Freud appeared to have predicted all this gender binary business.

“The conception which we gather from this long known anatomical fact is the original predisposition to bisexuality, which in the course of development has changed to monosexuality, leaving slight remnants of the stunted sex.”

Sexuality is fluid down generations. Evolution. No naturalistic fallacy about bonobos here, plz.

“Psychic hermaphroditism would gain in substantiality if parallel with the inversion of the sexual object there should be at least a change in the other psychic qualities, such as in the impulses and distinguishing traits characteristic of the other sex. But such inversion of character can be expected with some regularity only in inverted women; in men the most perfect psychic manliness may be united with the inversion. …”

Lesbian neuroscience testosterone studies. 2D:4D ratios. The homosexual male’s femininity is a parody, a social role. They had no trouble hiding it when it was illegal.

He did write a whole book on Leonardo assuming he was homosexual, the reason moderns assume it, so he may be slightly biased in favour of the male purely because his own mother abandoned him to a nanny. We call this attachment issues in child psychology but it’s essentially Freud Pure.

“The conception which we gather from this long known anatomical fact is the original predisposition to bisexuality, which in the course of development has changed to monosexuality, leaving slight remnants of the stunted sex.”

Kinsey hasn’t got shit on Freud.

“A spokesman of the masculine inverts stated the bisexual theory in its crudest form in the following words: “It is a female brain in a male body.” But we do not know the characteristics of a “female brain.” The substitution of the anatomical for the psychological is as frivolous as it is unjustified. The attempted explanation by v. Krafft-Ebing seems to be more precisely formulated than that of Ulrich but does not essentially differ from it. v. Krafft-Ebing thinks that the bisexual predisposition gives to the individual male and female brain cells as well as somatic sexual organs.”

Sounds epigenetic.

“These centers develop first towards puberty mostly under the influence of the independent sex glands. We can, however, say the same of the male and female “centers” as of the male and female brains; and moreover, we do not even know whether we can assume for the sexual functions separate brain locations (“centers”) such as we may assume for language.  33  After this discussion, two thoughts, as it were, remain; first, that a bisexual predisposition is to be presumed for the inversion also, only we do not know wherein it exists beyond the anatomical formations; and, second, that we are dealing with disturbances which are experienced by the sexual impulse during its development. 11  34  ”

“The Sexual Object of Inverts.—The theory of psychic hermaphroditism presupposed that the sexual object of the inverted is the reverse of the normal. The inverted man, like the woman, succumbs to the charms emanating from manly qualities of body and mind; he feels himself like a woman and seeks a man.  35  But however true this may be for a great number of inverts it by no means indicates the general character of inversion. There is no doubt that a great part of the male inverted have retained the psychic character of virility, that proportionately they show but little the secondary characters of the other sex, and that they really look for real feminine psychic features in their sexual object. If that were not so it would be incomprehensible why masculine prostitution, in offering itself to inverts, copies in all its exterior, to-day as in antiquity, the dress and attitudes of woman.”

The original ‘are traps gay?’

To round off by repeating one section considering our current knowledge of the microbiome and the possible role of Gay Germ theory.

“It has in fact become customary to designate all morbid manifestations not of traumatic or infectious origin as degenerative. ”

How about you read the thing before taking an SJW’s word for it?

Their definition of homophobia and privilege are also deeply Freudian.
