Repressive Hypothesis/“great paradigm shift” refers to the idea that increased sexual liberation in the form of recognition or visibility somehow subverts power structures and institutions. It refers to the idea that “Yes to Sex” translates into a “No to Power.” Unfortunately, this expression of desire alone cannot liberate anyone as power is always already functioning in multiple different contexts, ways, and times. The repression idea gives the mirage of being free and liberated, but only veils existing power structures. We get pleasure from transgressing the taboo even though identity is still being molded by discourse.
