Phrase: Gibbons

“Homosexuality is thought as a threat to the logic of thought itself insofar as it figures the availability of an unthinkable jouissance that would put an end to fantasy—and, with it, to futurity—by reducing the assurance of meaning in fantasy’s promise of continuity to the meaningless circulation and repetitions of the drive.”

Homosexuality as a reality completely intrudes on the world of fantasy. In doing so, it brings a shocking realization that a full turn to homosexuality would result in the end of legacy, permanance and futurity. The end of a name would destroy people’s fantasy of living on forever, and it is not logical to not want to live that fantasy; homosexuality can then be said to be a threat to the logic of thought and a abrupt destruction of fantasy.
