Social formation of gendered and sexual identities

 Thanks to a Facebook post by Danial Chandler for this:

‘I consider semiotic codes to be constitutive of the meanings out of which individual subjectivity is born. They define the social and symbolic context within which subjectivity takes shape and are therefore basic to the social formation of gendered and sexual identities.’
