Re: Perversion

HI Blaine,

wow, that sounds like a fascinating study. I personally am quite interested
in disgust, which I would relate to perversion inasmuch as the object of
'conventional' disgust is usually considered in some way perverse. I have
found Kristeva's concept of the 'abject' of inestimable value here, as
detailed in 'Powers of Horror'. And I think that Bataille forms a suitable
adjunct to these ideas as well. Anyone who can say 'My father slaps me and I
see the sun' just HAS to be mentioned in this context!
