The Trans Solution

 

 

Jacques-ALain Miller


JAM––It shows that for the last three or four years, psychoanalysts have seen coming to them, in quite a large num-ber, subjects worked on by a trans problem, and who would like to know exactly where do they stand in relation to what torments them. La solution trans, which we have just pub-lished by Navarin Éditeur, presents fi ve cases of transition. Well, there is one patient whose relationship with the analyst spreads over ten years, and we follow his path step by step,which leads him to surgery. The main thing for us is that the subject has completed its speaking journey (son parcours de parole), that it has clarifi ed its desire or its conviction, after which the choice is theirs. We see suff ering subjects who fi nally fi nd relief in the transition, and their particular defi ni-tion as sexual beings.


Transactivists are something else. They are full-fl edged political activists, and with that, very sensitive. They promote a “gender identity” that is intimate, innate and defi n-itive. The subject would be the only one to know in its heart of hearts who it is, as it were, gendered. In short, “I am what I say I am,” all trans people are transparent to themselves. So they demand an immediate transition, and at all ages, as soon as a subject, even a child, says it is uncomfortable with its body. This is the famous “gender self-determination” on which, in Western countries, the public authorities are grad-ually aligning themselves. Victoire! Will it be sustainable? The bets are open. Still, it is the exact opposite of psycho-analysis, whose act is based on interpretation, that is to say on the fact that the subject does not really know what it is saying.
