“Morality was supreme because it joined male and female characteristics. Blending the best characteristics of both sexes and the 'opposite' races - the characteristics of intelligence and compassion - Comte claimed the legitimacy to act as the spokesperson for the collective being Humanity and to regenerate society. As a completely unified and moral person, he could create within society the solidarity necessary for progress. In a way, he was challenging the two androgynes who had captured the imagination of his contemporaries: Joan of Arc and George Sand. Comte appeared to heed the words of a feminist journal. La Voix des Femmes, which proclaimed in 1848 that 'Woman must ... emancipate man by making him a woman.”
Mary Pickering, Auguste Comte: An Intellectual Biography, Volume III

“Et pourtant je suis un homme. C'est ça que je voulais te dire : avant d'être un homme ou une femme, homo ou hétéro, on est une personne. Fort ou faible, dominant ou dominé, ça a souvent à voir avec ce qu'on a entre les jambes, mais pas que. C'est pour ça que j'aime Bowie, regarde, il bouscule tous les codes : masculin et féminin, il couche avec des hommes, avec des femmes, il révolutionne la musique, se réinvente chaque fois. Et en même temps il ne revendique rien, ne veut pas être un porte-drapeau, ne marche pas pour une cause. C'est pas un modèle. Il nous ouvre juste des horizons.”
Jessie Magana, Nos elles déployées
