(The) Other

Philosophy, 1807

Something which needs to be “neutralised” by “queering” a city with Pride parades.

Very few other concepts owe so much to so many low-IQ usual suspects than “the other”, “otherness”, or “othering”. The sheer amount of nonsense written on the subject is stupefying, with every idiot chipping in: Sartre, Derrida, Foucault, de Beauvoir, Lacan, and even Gramsci. In 1807, “The Phenomenology of Spirit” by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel attempted to conceptualise a companion to “The Self”. Ever since then, every imposter with a pen has attempted to use it to give their bad ideas legitimacy
