	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.
