I believe you have just begun to touch on post-feminism, the
concept that feminism, in its own way seeks to objectively categorize in
a manner not all that much different from those darn modernists.
Post-feminism, (IMHO) acknowledges that it ain't so easy to simply
separate the folks into two sexes, or two genders or two anything.
