“But there is another kind of loneliness which is terrible to endure.”
“He paused.
“And that is the loneliness of seeing a different world from that of the people around you. Their lives remain remote from yours. You can see the gulf and they can’t. You live among them. They walk on earth. You walk on glass. They reassure themselves with conformity, with carefully constructed resemblances. You are masked, aware of your absolute difference. That’s why I always live in the bars — les lieux de drague — simply to be among the others who were like me.”

Michel Foucault

    Hi Sherry,

    As a Pakistani-American gay man who was raised a (non-praticing) muslim, I found your attempts to respond to YLH’s biased arguments on Pak Tea House really excellent. It’s always a struggle to get people to understand that one can be Pakistani without being muslim and that one can be gay and religious at the same time.

    Anway, you sound really interesting and I’d love to get to know you better. I am 23 and finishing my B.A. in English Lit in Washington DC. I am interested in philosophy as well.

    I stumbled on your site today. A friend studying in the US, who is part of a reading Adorno group sent me an email a few hours back on some Conferences and the normal talk routine of the left, she recently attended over there, where the concept of “dialectics of defeatism” turned up. I thus googled the phrase and instinctively of the sites that showed up, I chose yours at random, leading me to your 18/11/07 piece on Zizek.

    …I’ve been glued to the site since then, save for a little break to have some sandwiches….and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it!

    Sincere regard, comrade.

    Sherry, a quick question, if it’s not too pertinent — your blog subtitle says “De-realization of Pak Tea House”. Is that a reference to the Pak Tea House blog, and is there a specific contention you have with that blog? Genuinely curious here … I like PTH, but it’s too nationalistic for my tastes.

    Hi,

    I am trying to use this website as a source however, there is no information about the author other than sherryx or any affiliations to academic sources I can find. Are there any?

  18. Vox Libertas Says:

    You do know that Foucault was referring to his homosexuality and how that kept his trapped in a bubble (thus, the ref. to living “…in bars.”) while writing that post modernist piece right? It is not about anxiety, or loneliness or post modernist dystopia in general typified by artwork “The City” (alternatively known as “The Scream”).
