i'm hearing a lot about how ideas around authenticity are crumbling, and auth itself is a social construct

but i havent seen many of these talks reference much queer theory which is odd cuz all the auth talk feels like qT 101, so im gonna collect some of those resources here, eventually lol

also a larger goal is to reframe the idea of auth as a manifestation of desire, and thinking about desire as a productive force. maybe that should be another chan? desire machines
