Bueno, no tiene nada. Yet Ella does not have the suplici status necessary to express herself as a person independent of El, and the last lines of the act leave little hope that she ever will.
The ending may thereby imply an acceptance of both heterosexuality and homosexuality, again challenging the coherence of categories of sex, gender and desire and thus creating gender trouble. Given the fantastic elements of the act, one might interpret Los dientes as simply a drug-induced fantasy or dream.
So although the play is united thematically in that the acts explore relationships between men and women, each act is a story in and of itself, with its own characters.

In the end, all his knowledge and technique are inadequate; he bermna find the pain pleasure without the placsr of the patient: Finally, when Ella announces that she is ready, El, taken aback by Ella’s unabashed sensuality, takes off her dress and lays her down to have sex.
Thus this act does begin to make the kind of gender trouble Butler advocates, by disentangling the construct of “continuity among sex, gender, sexual practices, and desire,” and more generally defying the great social force that is the normalization of sexual practices Butler 23 Nevertheless, just as in the other acts, one also notes a penchant for gender stereotypes in Los dientes.

The opening scene is like a duel, with Ella and El back to back repeating “No entiendo” Dos veces el Premio Nacional de Periodismo. Each playlet has two characters named he and she, but even those generic terms offer no concrete clue to how they will behave.
According to El, the result is that she dresses like a pornographic Christmas tree An Interview with Judith Butler, Butler reminds us that “the fact of ddel matter is that there are female infants and children who cannot be impregnated, there are older women who cannot be impregnated, there are women of all ages who cannot be impregnated, and even if they could ideally, that is not necessarily the salient feature of their bodies or even of their being women.
Rather, the concept of woman is a mythical construction that comes to have “material effects and manifestations in the appropriate consciousness and bodies of 2 women” Ella remarks on El’s inability to enjoy a woman without possessing and controlling her, a stereotypical dominant-male quality, and his behavior with “la morena” eo Ella’s characterization true Secondly, Wittig assumes “the systematic integrity of heterosexuality,” so that the only options are: That question inevitably leads to another: Tal vez haya un hombre que te guste y si plaer que se te acerque tienes que quitarte el bigote.

In one instance, El is “embobado ante la belleza de ella” This scene thereby evokes a lasting image of dominance and submission, and it leaves little hope that Ella will free herself from El’s abuse. In essence, the marriage between Ella and El must replicate the gender binary, which infuses their relationship with hate, aggression, and perhaps even insanity. Los dientes is also admirable in that by implying an acceptance of certain taboos verman as bisexuality and incest it begins to subvert notions of gender and identity by dismantling the association between “sex, gender, sexual practices and desire” Butler This statement brings up the question: El se arrepiente de haber clicho lo que dijo.
Furthermore, when El bigote is analyzed from the perspective of Butler’s theory, it is shown to reify intelligible genders. Nevertheless, while Ella may be well-supported materially and in fact the stage directions only describe her living space as a “departamentito”it seems very unlikely that El actually pleases Ella sexually Osborne, Peter and Lynne Segal.
The first act challenges notions of coherent gender identities, but the subversive force of the work is diminished in subsequent acts. One notable difficulty in the subversion of gender is that the written text constantly reinforces a sexual difference between the characters El and Ella.
