Power/identity through perversion

Jennifer: The system exerts a tremendous amount of force to push us into certain roles and into adopting certain “perceptions”.
Karen: As opposed to a powerful and intrinsic knowledge of one’s own gender/race equality and right.Oh yes…prescribed or recreational drugs are certainly a big keeps of the status quo.
Jennifer:  Well the “intrinsic” knowledge can also be wrong and limiting. That’s why I propose the shamanistic thing of self-knowledge through perverting the dominant paradigm. i.e. create various perversions of it and find out if any of those are  suitable for you.

Note: The term, “perversity”, offers an ironic take on this matter above, since those who defend the dominant paradigm will always view any kind of creativity in dissent as “perverse”.
