1 thought on “The Transliterated Pudenda of Ralph Nader

  1. Matthew Blunderfield

    This is a really great line, wonderfully odd, and the essay was intriguing – but what about Nader?

    “Talbot’s belief … is that automobile crashes play very different roles from the ones we assign them… In the eucharist of the simulated auto-disaster we see the transliterated pudenda of Ralph Nader, our nearest image of the blood and body of Christ.”

    I read the car-crash fantasy as a generative act and, like I mentioned before, ‘pathologically optimistic’ – an ontological transliteration forming new possibilities of gender/spirituality/sexuality as mediated through the collision of the body with its technological environment.
