Example text

The issue was precisely the equalization of power and liberty—how a woman might be free to fulfill her potential and participate in the government of human society in the same manner as men. However, this had to be accomplished without assuming a masculine psyche. Rather, an “androgynous mentality” would be required. ”21 For her, true universal humanity would be experienced only when sexual difference was 19 ibid. 11 ibid. p. 206 21 ibid. p. 169 20 27 imperceptible. Taken to its logical conclusion, this would occur when no one experienced oppression, or when no one was female.

17 Since it is in the nature of men to maintain their ties to biological superiority, the current social order, designed to rationalize the biological privilege of adult males, would require revolutionary overthrow. Women, therefore, must call on a rationality that seeks transcendence of this socio-evolutionary stagnation, for only women have the natural drive to overthrow the tyranny that keeps them enslaved to biology. What rationality (by definition universal or gender neutral) might women utilize to overcome the cultural institutions produced by the rationality of men?

However, what that “genderless being” might be or what impact the creation of such a reality might have on its “woman-identified” creators is not defined. 55 Because these oppressions still exist, the socialist revolution has failed to establish social equality. Her strategy for eliminating these two evils, however, is to eradicate gender. In this frame, if there is any logic at work, white masculinity must be specifically and inherently racist in order to achieve such a double goal, otherwise white femininity and male minority must be respectively racist and sexist as well.
