Re: Drug Gaze

I would agree. Look at Judith Butler, her studies of gender have shown how
it is a social construction. This however wouldn't discount that there is a
socially constructed gaze. A feminist may claim that it is intrinsic and
due to certain traits, that analysis would more than likely be refuted with
a Foudauldian lens, but the fact that there is gaze, would not.

I think?
