This has yet to happen. To what extent can I manipulate my subconscious, natural desires? Is the purpose of disability studies to get people to the point where they can gaze at a disabled person and feel attraction? I suspect the latter question is a no--that the purpose is to turn the disabled from object to subject--but I have to wonder, Are we expected to look at an amputee with the same amount of amazement as we are Venus de Milo? (I'd also like to point out that the West's infatuation with Venus may not be due to her level of physical attraction, but the expertise of her sculptors; sculptures of Egyptian Pharaohs are physically attractive, but their sculpted form isn't as 'realistic' as that of Venus or many other classical Greek works).
This all comes back to me being wary of Theory, yet, at the same time, Biology. What can the mind control, and what is it forced to leave be? I suppose this most comes up when reading Lacan, the man who so forcefully divorces biology and the mind, especially in the case of the death drive and many psychosomatic disorders (anorexia, etc.)
I've just confused myself more. Thoughts?
