Example text

Within this discursive space some things are foregrounded and made central, while others are denied or occluded through the silences that open up among those same speech acts. 60 It is not surprising that AIDS legal scripts should rely on these same erratic but predictable schemas. Throughout the past IRONIC JURISPRUDENCE 41 twenty-five years AIDS worked in much the same way that Foucault described sexuality: not as something that was repressed, but as something that was spoken of endlessly with an increasingly specific vocabulary accompanied by elaborate technologies of compulsion.

Throughout the past IRONIC JURISPRUDENCE 41 twenty-five years AIDS worked in much the same way that Foucault described sexuality: not as something that was repressed, but as something that was spoken of endlessly with an increasingly specific vocabulary accompanied by elaborate technologies of compulsion. In the same ways that sexuality establishes a hierarchy of sexual value, AIDS legal discourse establishes a hierarchy of culpability, privileging some people with HIV and sorting them into “innocent” and “guilty” victims, marginalizing others, and ultimately functioning in many of the same ways that Foucault recognized with sexuality.

69 Legal scripts establish a similar form of metonymy between AIDS and homosexuality, but the “organized forgetting” required to avoid the dissimilarities between the two requires more negational rhetorical effort. The gay and lesbian community is engaged in numerous projects designed to advance its social, political, and legal position within the larger context of the American body politic. Same-gender marriage, domestic partnership benefits, military service, parenting and child custody, definitions of safer-sex and responsible sexual expression all appear as sites of tension between the queer community and some mythical “general” public.
