When Man purifies his desire of the pathological remainders, woman disintegrates. Man himself exists only through woman qua his symptom: all his ontological consistency hangs on, is suspended from ..his symptom. -SLAVOjZIZEK

Woman is the symptom of man, caught in the hysterical game of demanding that he refuse her demand, precisely to the extent to which she is submitted to the phallic enjoyment. -SLAVOjZIZEK

Woman redeems man by renouncing phallic enjoyment. (What we have here is the exact opposite to Weininger where man redeems-destroys woman by overcoming his phallicity). -SLAVOjZIZEK
