Judith Butler – Gender Troubles

The lecture’s I have been watching mention Judith Butler, found this extract called gender troubles, she’s a feminist and she mentions in one of her personal video journeys that ive been watching (6 part video on youtube) that she is gay, and that she refuses to be named that first, because most people introduce someone (with a sexuality other than hetrosexual) as their sexuality, which she feels does not make a person she is other things before she is a gay. So she has a book called gender troubles which backs up some of her points in her video’s too. She is feminist, and she is gay, it maybe bias in someways possibly? but its good to get another point of view so from about page 16 she talks about sex,gender, identity and desire.
