Later, she argues that 30 Verena Andermatt Conley ‘woman’ has always been thought from a phallocentric male point of view and therefore lesbians are not women (Wittig 1992). In The Newly Born Woman, Hélène Cixous insisted on de-emphasising trap words such as ‘man’ and ‘woman’ because of their historical sedimentation. She found salvation in an unlimited exchange as gift and the replacement of nouns with adjectives, ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ and even attributes of colour. Deleuze’s queering as becoming goes beyond homosexuality – though it does not complicate the latter – to include all minorities, to begin with women who insist on changing language in an effort to transform a capitalist, disciplinary society and its institutions.

He is in touch with invention and an opening of spaces. Deleuze discovers in Hocquenghem a homosexual desire that is not defined as ‘a regressive interiority but through an Outside, whose characteristics are present’ (Deleuze 2004: 285). The philosopher finds this in a special movement of cruising, a mode of encounter, exchangeability and mobility of roles, even in a kind of betrayal against his own class, that is, that of men. In addition to desire, queering must produce utterances (énoncés). Deleuze makes it clear that to produce a real and not a capitalist pseudodesire entails producing new utterances.
