PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Speaking Queer: A Reply to Richard C. Friedman Related Papers

Ken Corbett, Ph.D.

Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you

[Sartre, 1946, p. 495].

Readers who have followed this exchange will not be surprised to learn that Richard C. Friedman and I hold differing views regarding protogay gender experience. However, both the content and the tenor of Friedman's accusatory protest point beyond our views on protogay gender to a foundational disagreement between us: Our beliefs about authority, specifically, what constitutes a truth claim, who is invested with the power to speak, and how that invested speaker may utter the truth. Friedman moves toward “setting the record straight.” I was striving to queer the record, to experiment with a queer inflection within psychoanalytic discourse.

It is not my intent to stake out a heterosexual-homosexual divide. Indeed, I find such simplistic divisions deeply troubling. The degree to which one's approach to the protogay subject is influenced by one's sexuality is open to considerable variation. One could argue, as does LeVay (1996), for example, that gay people have a “privileged insight into their own natures” (p. 7).
