#1: Bikini

In July 1946, the United States detonated two nuclear bombs at the Bikini atoll, an island in the South Pacific, which of course was big news around the world.

A year later, a French fashion designer introduced a scanty two-piece bathing suit and named it the bikini.

Unable to find a model immodest enough to wear it, he debuted it on a stripper – and it too became big news.
"Some will read “queer” as synonymous with
“gay and lesbian” or “LGBT”. This reading falls
short. While those who would fit within the con-
structions of “L”, “G”, “B” or “T” could fall with-
in the discursive limits of queer,  queer is not
a stable area to inhabit. Queer is not merely
another identity that can be tacked onto a list
of neat social categories, nor the quantitative
sum of our identities. Rather, it is the quali-
tative position of opposition to presentations
of stability - an identity that problematizes the
manageable limits of identity. Queer is a ter-
ritory of tension, defined against the domi-
nant narrative of white-hetero-monogamous-
patriarchy, but also by an affinity with all who
are marginalized, otherized and oppressed."

the coming insurrection

There will be no social solution to the present situation. First, because the vague aggregate of social milieus, institutions, and individualized bubbles that is called, with a touch of antiphrasis, “society,” has no consistency. Second, because there’s no longer any language for common experience. And we cannot share wealth if we do not share a language. It took half a century of struggle around the Enlightenment to make the French Revolution possible, and a century of struggle around work to give birth to the fearsome “welfare state.” Struggles create the language in which a new order expresses itself. But there is nothing like that today. Europe is now a continent gone broke that shops secretly at discount stores and has to fly budget airlines if it wants to travel at all. No “problems” framed in social terms admit of a solution. The questions of “pensions,” of “job security,” of “young people” and their “violence” can only be held in suspense while the situation these words serve to cover up is continually policed for signs of further unrest.
