    4 AMERICAN MYSTICS

    "Language... is a set of acts, repeated over time, that produce reality-effects that are eventually misrepresented as "facts". Collectively considered, the repeated practice of naming sexual difference has created this appearance of natural division. The "naming" of sex is an act of domination and compulsion, an institutionalized performative that both creates and legislates social reality...Hence, we are compelled in our bodies and our minds to correspond, feature by feature, with the idea of nature that has been established for us...'men' and 'women' are political categories, and not natural facts."
    -Judith Butler
