“Learned gender roles are learned roles of conjouring up fantasy through the fake aspect of seeming to be other from the other sex – up to the point of fantasies becoming too obviously fake and sterile and even up to the point of enjoying the very sterility of it all.” – “For sexual tension to sustain itself one always associates the lover to some degree with a fantasy. Sexual difference itself is not sufficient enough to do that. Yes, it creates the appearance of just enough difference, enough otherness, enough fantasy, to attract or arouse, but what actually sustains this attraction is the fake aspect of every difference.” – ANDRE VANTINO on Zizek’s take on heterosexuality
