Example text

Rejali’s work is useful in thinking about sexual violence in Iraq because it opens the possibility that one of the effects of sexualized violence in Iraq was similarly to create subject positions by creating a particular understanding of the relations between the US military and the Iraqi captives. Rejali’s work is helpful because the common sense of American public discourse – where Iraqis are particularly vulnerable to sexual humiliation because they are Muslims – was not, in fact, the obvious context for thinking about members of the Ba’athist Party before the war.

Self-discipline and earnest enforcement regulate activity along particular lines; far from being repressive, self-discipline means freedom from priests and kings, and creates individuals and communities ready to participate in the free market. While the disciplinary nature and even the religious roots of market-based freedom may be familiar, less commented upon is the fact that the Reformation also marked a major change in sexual relations, one that instituted a particular form of sexual freedom.

Luther, however, nowhere states whether the woman will or will not take another husband. ”23 The analogy only makes sense if it is obvious to Luther that in her freedom to please herself, the woman will choose not only the conjugal relation of matrimony for a second time, but that she will also procreate with this new husband, bringing forth the fruit of life. In other words, Protestant freedom is an incitement to sexuality over against the celibacy of priestly and monastic life, and it is an incitement specifically to matrimonial and reproductive sexuality.
