“She is not interested in what satisfies him, but in what he desires.” – ..The hysteric is interested in the Other’s lack. ..Her being as subject ..she obtains through the Other. ..The hysteric’s desire ..is to be the signifier of the Other’s desire – the phallus, not the object of his satisfaction. This explains why ‘being the phallus’ is a possible feminine position.
