March 1, 2024 — Perverse Relatedness
Richard Tuch, in Murder on the Mind: Tyrannical Power and other Points Along the Perverse Spectrum, gives a comprehensive overview of the history of thinking about perversion and perverse relatedness.
In Perverse Female Relating, Andrea Celenza updates old notions of perversion that were based on male development as normative and gives readers a new self-structure to consider: the Objectified Self. She suggests that in contrast to male perverse relatedness, a hallmark of female perverse relating is self-objectification, the aim of which is to control a dangerous subjectivity within.
