“”a man’s day-dream..shows that..all his successes [are] achieved..to please a woman and to be preferred by her to other men”. [This] desire for mastery is nothing but the disguised articulation of another desire—the desire occasioned by the impossible object” – 1908 A 9/157 cf. Hysterical phantasies and their relation to bisexuality (1908). http://ift.tt/1x5Fixm (The Real Gaze) – Todd McGowan citing Freud
