Page 14 - to be a man or a woman was to hold a social rank, to assume a cultural role, and not to be organically one or the other of two sexes. Sex was still a sociological, not an ontological, category
Page 14 - the corporeal theatrics of a world where at least two genders correspond to but one sex, where the boundaries between male and female are of degree and not of kind, and where the reproductive organs are but one sign among many of the body's place in a cosmic and cultural order that transcends biology.
