====The Primacy of the Phallus====
[[Lacan]] has often been accused of "[[phallocentrism]]." And it is [[true]] that he has asserted that "the phallus is the privileged signifier."<ref>?</ref>
====The Distinction between Phallus and Penis====The [[meaning]] of the term '[[phallocentrismphallus]]' refers to the tendency to focus all discussion of , however, has often been misunderstood. The term [[sexual differencephallus]] on the primacy of must be distinguished from the term [[phalluspenis]].

In short, but alos that [[masculinityLacan]] and 's [[femininitydistinction]] are innate and absolute polarities.He contends that discussions of the development of sexuality have been dominated by between the 'unduly phallo-centric views' of male [[analystpenis]]s and that the importance of the female organs has been 'correspondingly underestimated.'The possible protofeminist implications of his claims are immediately undermined when [[Jonesphallus]] goes on to add that women have compounded the problem by adopting what he calls 'a secretive attitude towards their own genitals' and by showing 'a hardly disguised preference for interest in the male organ.' In contemporary usage, 'enables [[phallocentrismFreud]]' tends to refer to the Lacanian theory of the s [[phallusbiology|biologistic account]].The accussation of [[phallocentrismmale]] is crucial to superiority and [[Irigaraywomen]]'s critique of [[psychoanalysispenis-envy]]. Phallocentric“Phallus centered” The term has gained currency among psychoanalytic thought. Phallus isn’t considered to be the same as the penisexplained in [[linguistics|linguistic]] and [[symbolic]], but is the symbol of difference between the sexes and signifier of the status which has been socially conferred upon biological maleness.  Phallogocentric“ Jacques Derrida suggests that the primacy of the word and phallocentrism are the same thing; language is the realm of the fathers and the phallus is the ‘privileged signifier’thus historical [[terms]].
