Here in this review a freudian approach is applied to understand the dynamics of the queer movements. Queer movements irrespective of any contextuality, even in the times where there wasn't any "movement" as such shows the general property of going beyond the normativity and it should be noted that the normativity can be of phenomenological expressions or described from another theoretical school of approach(eg. Evolutionary biology and the discussions on homosexuality). It is inevitable to accept that universally, certain taboo or discrimination or rejection or ignorance of existence or acceptance in specialized forms could be observed in any culture to which any queer aspects are observed. This is the source of discussion for the freudian superego.
1. As some trait lying beyond the "reproductive norms"-Which manifest in several ways such as punishment,suppression etc, which any queer person or movement has experienced.
2. As something that is imposed as the society's view of compassion. - which is a view beyond the initial view presented here, but whose function arises out of society in terms of protecting the life of the individual, and to be contextualised here, the queer person.
1. Popular Resistance:-
Resisting the punishing authority of superego,which is manifested in several forms of various magnitudes.
For instance, the postmodern extremism "I like the way I am,I am what I am and No one else dont have to care about it". This form of extremism is of dangerous, simply because it only reduces the queer person to a grounded level of animalistic instincts, reducing the person to the register of freduian Id.
(A freedom outside the letters-Psychotic freedom).
2. Normal resistence:-
Aiming at the society's need to recognize the compassion- A certain type of true movement, which could recognizes the existence of social factor as well, at the same time showing the resistance which could be better described in the words of Lacan as "A freedom within the Language, Not Outside the Language".
3. Ego Compromise:-
A certain form of movement that resembles the ego psychology. It aims at helping the queer folk in adapting as per the superego and Id. Simply to find a compromise. Some best examples for such a manifestation includes Marriage of Convenience,Supporters of " Marriage for society but secret sex life" etc. Again these forms are highly unstable, switching from any state to another, feeling a gross displeasure.
4. Men of codes Approach:-
They aim to "Correct,repair and adjust" the person as totally a function of existing law. It is characterised by the manifestations of self torture expressed via rigorous reparitive therapies, or a continuous appeal to god to provide a "cure to my disease" However this approach masks the true significance of reparitive therapies, which will be discussed later in this forum. Characterized by excessive control of superego.
