Cet article propose un lien entre le discours féministe et la perversion. Dans un monde où le sujet pervers est Maître, le réel est anticipé de façon à satisfaire les besoins primaires. Mais la réalité est tout autre, lorsqu'une femme se pose, ou s'oppose, d'une façon plus spontanée, et vient compromettre la quête du pervers : d'objet, dans un monde qui l'assujettit, elle devient sujet. Elle secoue ainsi l'édifice masculin, non sans heurt, car une certaine forme de violence s'impose alors que l'objet résiste. Ce scénario ne fait que rendre manifeste ce que nous savions déjà sur l'agressivité inhérente au rapport pervers. Ce qui a néanmoins comme conséquence d'offrir une autre possibilité de discours qui, d'un point de vue éthique, s'impose à nos sociétés occidentales pour sortir de la perversion et du Même.This paper proposes an explanation for the resistance to feminist discourse, by linking it to perversion. In a world in which the perverse subject dominates, reality is apprehended with the sole satisfaction of primary needs in view. Now such a "reality" becomes wholly transformed so soon as a woman spontaneously asserts or oppose herself, for she appears to compromise the perverse subject's quest; hitherto an object in a subjugating world, she becomes a subject herself. She thus rocks the masculine structure, with resulting clashes, since some degree of violence is inevitable in the face of resistance. This scenario merely manifests what was already known about agression as endemic to perverse relations. From an ethical point of view, however, new possibilities are thus opened up by a discourse which ought to help our Western societies to escape from perversion and Sameness
