The short answer to this question is no. Femininity, from a Lacanian perspective, involves action. Women go through repression as men do, except that this repression is different and this difference accounts for non-radical action/repression (women are not entirely bound by the symbolic). The feminine position, though incorporated into the world of language, still remains connected to the world of being (or the real), which the masculine identity entirely represses. The relation of femininity to what is excluded is therefore not as radical as the masculine relation to it.
Mead, 1977, p. ) Social interaction, therefore, is a process that forms human conduct and it is not the mere expression or release of human conduct previously defined. This is because human beings, in order to act, take into account what the other is doing, and in doing so they modify their own conduct; to interact means to make indications to others on what to do, and also to interpret the indications made by others. And who is the other in Mead’s account? It is interesting to see that although Mead defines the other as constitutive of the self, there is no real other (as a radically different other) in this theory.
Moreover, the Name of the Father – as the prohibition of incest – is the constitutive principle of the symbolic order. The phallus in this sense is the first or main signifier, and as such, is the one that breaks the imaginary relation between the mother and the child. ” (Lacan, 1977, p. 14 3 Feminine Passivity versus Male Activity That said, the question still remains as to why it is the father – rather than the mother – who inaugurates the child’s entry into the symbolic order? According to Freud and Lacan, initially the child sees its mother as a phallic mother.
