female. thing. I. THE RISE OF REPRODUCTIVE CULTURE Upper-class women
of the late nineteenth century provided the prototype of sanctioned femininity.
They displayed subdued emotion and unsullied tact, a practiced frailty, restricted
mental activity, domestic privation, and a constriction of physical activity. One
hundred years later, this prototype is still recognizable in popular imagery. In an
Oscar de la Renta ad for perfume, the copy reads: "Experience the power of
femininity.

In seeing the femalething,” and its absolute difference from his own organ,
Pricket realizes the power of his penis. To some extent the scene dramatizes
masculine superiority, as the attention lavished on the prince's prick by the two
women provides what Irigaray has called the “woman's fetishization of the male
organ [that must indeed be an indispensable support of its price on the sexual
market.” Yet the scene insists as well on the immense and frightening power of

Ox A Femalb Thing. By a Male Creature. I can't bear female things. They never
run twice alike. You can't depend upon their form from one day to another. A
female thing is a tissue of contradictions and inconsistencies. I'm not quite sure,
though, about her being a tissue, for that means something slight and flimsy,
whereas some female things I have known have been dooa'd solid and
substantial. A medical friend, however, advises me that they possess tissues, so I
suppose it is all right ...

inmates. Unlike men, whom COs believe act instrumentally to obtain resources
from officers and from the system, women rely on indirect tactics. Handling the
latter is ...

The elder of my cousins is a very lively girl, and so great an enemy to all kinds of
form, that y«. seldom see her with so much as a pin in her gown; while the
younger, who thinks in her heart that her sister is no better than a slattern, runs
into the contrary extreme, and' is in every thing she does an absolute fid-fad. She
takes up almost as much time to put on her gown as her sister does to dirty one.
The elder is too thoughtless to remember what she is to do, and the other is so

my garment was somewhat soiled before I entered into the water, when I came
out of it, it was in a measure cleaned, as you see. And another reason 1 have to
