Ce n’est qu’un jeu, ce n’est qu’un ‘je’, on fait semblant, on joue le jeu, et c’est bien ça, pour le sujet femme, la soi-disant ‘vérité’ du signifiant ou du parlêtre. Je ne veux pas dire par là que les femmes sont forcément joueuses (ludiques), encore que cela peut arriver. Mais quand elles ne sont pas illusionnées, elle sont désillusionnées. L’apparent ‘réalisme’ des femmes se soutient de cet illusoire: les femmes ne cessent de faire, et de tout faire, parce qu’elles n’y croient pas, elles croient que c’est une illusion.
For, given its very structure and under the threat of castration, the phallicism of both sexes succumbs to repression and is succeeded by the latency period. e. 4 And yet, phallic monism—with its recognition of one sex alone (the penis), of one libido alone (the masculine) and of a sole symbol for the activity of thought (the phallus)—remains, for the two sexes, a fundamental datum of the unconscious. As such, phallic monism can be understood as an infantile illusion that subsists as an unconscious reality serving to structure the psyche.
Representing the real presence of the phallus, the child becomes the object of a cathexis on the part of the mother in a way that no sign or symbol—even if these were phallic—can be. This was evidently understood by the last religion, Christianity, when it made a child its god and, in this way, definitively won women over to its cause in spite of their profound tendency to disillusionment, which, indeed, amounts to so strong an incredulity when faced with ideals and disincarnated superegos that Freud was led severely to criticize women’s poorly developed sense of morality.
