Rotting

In the premodern era, women were goods. Modernity transformed them into free agents, but as free agents women ceased to be women. Emancipation unsexed them. The same thing happened to men when they were emancipated from the burdens of manliness and became “free’ to remain adolescents for life. Modern societies are therefore increasingly societies of the unsexed, formless aggregations of the unformed. This is the true meaning of “gender fluidity.” What is celebrated as fluidity is freedom from form, surrender to entropy. What is called postmodernism is a formula for packaging this surrender to decomposition as a willed transgression of norms.
