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.
~confetti~

“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  ”

another thrilling round of-

“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.

Political quizzes are biased, says common sense

The structure writing them is designed to support itself.

These people aren’t taught alternatives!

It’s like asking the Pope’s position on theism!

They should just ask your age, sex, race and nationality status and guess based on those.

Everything is identity politics, including class.

French warm up to another Revolution

Maybe if the MSM keep hitting the Nazi pinata, people might start listening to them again?

Jihad isn’t mentioned once.

This is indicative of what’s really going on.

The Communist isn’t called ‘far-left’ and her word about her sworn enemy (the right) is automatically believed.

These Frenchies don’t have Internalised Racism. They have genophilia.
It’s like none of those clueless people understand the reason the monarchy was toppled. They refused to listen to the people. It was about class, identity and stealing money with taxes for the lazy. The demographic leeches kept sucking.

I don’t think France will kick off first. Maybe Paris, but not France.

Probably Italy, somewhere nobody cares about like Denmark, Sweden would be funny.

Don’t forget who caused this mess. Brussels, I’m looking at you.

PC ‘culture’ [signalling] is a fake fantasy world. You can be anything you want except a happy, straight white man.

“I’m not eating little cakes with a few representatives who, in reality, represent only themselves,” she sniffed.

Nothing to do with the Revolution, nope!

The Guardian panics, turns on SJWs

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/dec/01/blame-trump-brexit-identity-liberalism

They say no enemies to the Left, but when the going gets tough, they push one another in the line of fire first.

These hoes ain’t loyal.

They always beg a question with this rhetoric, critical theory never posits alternatives so you can never argue with an alternative.

And how, exactly, would a non-populist democracy work?

How? How would we count votes? Isn’t a vote like a beauty contest? This is absurd.

A selection of comments.

How else can Oxford law students tell welders about how privileged they are.
Identity politics is how the modern left got around having to deal with poorer people,class and economic inequality.
It was also about making the focus on themselves, their friends and not those beneath, whatever colour or sexuality etc they are.
It is a rejection of what the left was always about.

We were taught to value diversity back in the days when we weren’t overwhelmed by it. Now, the fear is setting in because we never thought that we, the majority, would have to sacrifice our own culture in order to help other people assimilate. I think the current problems are being caused by minorities who have not reciprocated by sacrificing a part of their culture to fit in with us. Yesterday, I noticed that the wrod ‘ADVENT’ has been replaced by ‘chocolate’ (thanks, Tesco). It seems we are no longer allowed to call advent calendars by their real name. I have always supported the multi-cultural society, but it’s gone too far now.

Edging towards some kind of argument about 15 years too late.

At last someone in this paper that gets it, sadly judging by the comments the average Guardianista still doesn’t and let’s be honest they never will, they’re not genuine left wingers, they’re more interested in virtue signalling than they are in actually doing any good.
The old left wouldn’t have supported staying in the EU and they wouldn’t have tolerated the harm mass immigration has done to the poorest, there’s a reason why UKIP could destroy the Labour Party.

Multiculturalism doesn’t work. Globalism is good for capitalists.

Utterly superb article that I am amazed to see on here, and which restores a considerable amount of my faith in the Guardian. So much so that I’ll give serious thought to contributing, finally.
Obviously I say this as the article effectively supports the position I’ve been setting out for years on here – I imagine many would disagree with this though. The problem for those people, is that they have no way to win power back with identity politics.

Oh no what a shame…

These people have never painted a room, have they? You plan your exit first, otherwise the expression ‘paint yourself into a corner’. Victory conditions, not that they read game theory. They probably think it’s the Scrabble rulebook.

It* was only going to work for as long as Labour held the working class.

The White working class.
You screwed over the white people and they stopped voting for you. Boo hoo.

They always beg the question, they presume their belief system is true and you agree with it, before speaking. Social Justice is a theory. So is creationism. So is astrology**. You can make a layman’s theory about anything, but the burden of proof is on you to apply that fantasy to reality. If you can’t, if you fail to FIX the problem and pontificate on about it (a Catholic term) then you lose. Leftists – all talk, no walk.

*Cultural Marxism.

**Yes I’m mocking myself. However, I did predict Trump based on an uncanny Regulus, making me more reliable than 90% of MSM. Even most astrology sites were gunning for Hillary based on a misread of her natal chart.

“Hold the working class”
“No way to win back”

much force and entitlement, the Left always becomes fascist eventually

They know exactly what they’re doing. The type of creature to flop on its back, expose its belly and plead for mercy, and then, once your back is turned, kill you ruthlessly. If Trump hadn’t won, what do you think this article would have been about? They want to start fights and beat people (up) without using their fists. Cowards. Who listens to a chicken? Especially when they go Chicken Little about the ice caps (fine), the polar bears (fine) and the poor gays (better than ever). They complained about victory so we gave them defeat.
