Before we can even start to address this question, we first much ask the question “What do we even mean by male or female?”
For this I think Judith Butler has a lot to offer on this question:
Mormons are essentialists to the extent that we would make Plato blush, particularly on issues of gender. It appears that Mormon Feminism has largely jumped on the essentialist bandwagon, even when defining Mormon Feminism. This may be because Mormon Feminism is stuck in the early stages of Second Wave Feminism.
I am not looking for anyone’s approval or acceptance. I accept me. That is enough for me.
Is it enough for you? Just kidding. I am not really looking for your permission.
