1. Who used the weird term "surgically dismembered?" and what does that suggest?

Reminds me of Susan Sarandon talking about not being a "vagina voter." to defend her curious preference for letting Donald Trump get into the Oval office.Women being reduced to body parts. Ah women, remember how Freud under pressure from his male colleagues retracted his finding on women being sexually abused as girls and decided they were just fantasizing about being molested and raped? Butler's analysis seems much like Freud's convoluted re-assessment

In any case, maybe New Statesman should consider a name change.
