The dual sound embodies the notion of duplicity, the inner pleasuring of
a transvestite. Outwardly, it has the guttural effort of the brusque 'hard'
g. This hard 'g' is a buffoon, a mock-up of a gangster, a pimp. The soft
'g' inside is an effeminate whisper--utterly harmless in its gauzy attempts
to actualize the fantasy of woman. It rarely succeeds. It is used in moist
words such as 'gentle' and 'genitals', ineffectual words such as 'geraniums'
or 'genial' but, usually, the actual woman 'J' pushes it aside, questions
its legitimacy or 'genuineness'.
Shapewise, 'G' echoes C, but it curls its tail inwards. I remember one afternoon
watching my brother Wystan depilate his legs.
