Sexual Differing


This concept of sexual differing provides a way of approaching feminist studies by which sex (material) and gender (social constructionism) are not separate. “a sexual differing can be made apparent that has an eye for the material (“sex”) and the discursive (“gender”) in their mutual entanglement, thus shifting identity politics and biological essentialism in favor of a performative ontology, as well as the dominate conceptualization of “revolution in thought” (11). What this means is that instead of sexual difference (what Bradotti calls worth-less-than) and requires a dualism. Sexual differing opens up a multiplicity of differences. This copes with many of the paradoxes found in feminist theory as well as confirming monist philosophy.
