The reason for this is that borders inhibit one’s desires as we are taught to conform to the expected behaviors and associated pleasures of our gendered selves. For this reason, the “imagination is trained to shift desires,” meaning there needs to be a balance of attending and respecting the borders of the permeable body. Moreover, in the long-term, “borderlessness is associated with pleasure,” so although complying with gendered stigmas might keep one safe, it is ultimately a self-imposed inhibition of desire....   [tags: Gender, Transgender, Sexual orientation]
