    Abstract

    Introduction: Contradictory social policies and attitudes about gender diversity raise questions about how we should understand the current status of the historical ‘heterosexual’ gender regime. Conclusion: Drawing on the work of the feminist philosopher and psychoanalyst Luce Irigaray, this essay argues that sexual difference is the irreducible starting point for all meaning, sense, morality and affect.
