Judith Butler

18: If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be? What would you say to them or ask them?

I would want to meet Judith Butler, and I would say “teach me everything you know”.  This is for purely selfish reasons.  Reading Butler makes me feel.. at home (currently reading gender trouble).  The way she describes gender speaks to me on a deeply personal level and reading articles by her in college changed the way i saw myself and the world.. it shed light on things for me, but I still don’t feel I understand it thoroughly.. to be able to engage in a conversation with her and ask questions and challenge… my brain would explode. I don’t necessarily agree with everything she writes or argues for, but it gives me a jumping off point and asks all the questions and poses arguments that help me to better understand how I feel about gender and thus myself.  To discuss it with her would be.. really effing crazy! Everything I’ve read from her is a little dated, to hear what she thinks now in 2011 would be absolutely amazing. I feel like I would leave that encounter truly enlightened.
