Disparate is the term I have chosen to address the question of the difference between the sexes, or better still, the difference that sex introduces into the speaking being. It’s also the question raised by the topicality of ‘trans’ discourse and sexual gender. Are we, with trans discourses, in the age of disparate genders? In fact, we could say that for psychoanalysis we are still, and always will be, in the era of the irreducible disparity of the sexes. The question is rather what kind of disparity we are talking about.
