However, as Judith Butler has asserted, authenticity is a poor critical mechanism as it privileges hegenomic structures at the expense of the queer. Within the legal sphere, the emphasis on the moment of the giving of consent also privileges those structures that turn human relationships into forms of contract. Butler's famous notion of "gender performativity" may help in crafting a new understanding of artists' and society's approaches to consent, one that recognizes its epistemological and ontological limits.

For example, the rock artist Meat Loaf’s highly theatrical and campy approach to consent in “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” recognizes and plays with the fluidity of the objects of consent’s intentionality by leaving ambiguous the question of precisely what “that” is. The cosmological focus on hell, the planets, dreams, and prayer reveals the ideological parameters that craft what individuals recognize as needing consent as well as the terms of that consent, and yet also recognizes the unconscious drives that prevent intentionality from ever attaining the pure rationality of the contract: “Some nights I lose the feeling, / Some nights I lose control, / Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls.” Meat Loaf moves from the role of victim to that of voyeur and magus as his ability to communicate his intentions dissipates. Intentionality in consent laws is a normative legal fiction that assumes a stable identity, and yet the concept of performativity as it is embodied in art shows that identities always remain contextual."

Hey, even if you don't get into Yale, your numbers are almost certain to get you into Harvard and Stanford.

And, you know, two out of three ain't bad.


I'm so sorry

Not to be a wet blanket, but SLS is also unpredictable even with high numbers: http://myLSN.info/cae5l1. HLS should be a lock, though.

Well, last year's FB group has 252 members. There were 245 net admits last year, and there are a few admissions officers and students who are members that make up that difference. (There's probably a few people who also don't have Facebook and others who left the group.)

This year's group has 85 members, and I'd say that's probably pretty reasonable right now. Much of the communication with admits goes out via the Facebook group, so it doesn't make sense to not be a part of it. According to the YLS website, the majority of decisions are sent out between mid-March and mid-April.

I have this completely irrational hope that I will be amongst the few. I wonder if everyone feels this before they are ultimately told that they aren't good enough.

It kind of makes me hate myself.

I think it's perfectly normal...

Always the hope there of being the exception...

Confession time: I spent all of the tenth year of my life waiting for my Hogwarts letter. :oops:

I had a weird dream last night that there was a sort of interview Olympics for all of the remaining applicants. I woke up expecting a decision and was deeply disappointed :lol:
Now I'm even more anxious for movement. Anyone up for some pointless speculation?
