In section 10 of A Thousand Plateaus, Deleuze and Guattari point out their dynamic monism with the affirmation of becoming-woman in the beginning, middle, and key of all becoming. The question of sexual difference is thus introduced, and restored into the place of radical ontological difference, from which one becomes and exists. The following pages aim at reading the mater-realistic immanence of becoming in the light of that first conceptive and medial movement, with an interpretation that intercepts Deleuzean and Guattarian vitalism through Feminism of Difference.
