Power/Gender Roles/Butler: every definition of "woman" or "female" strengthens the power structures that feminism wants to question. (1) A power order beyond gender is inconceivable as long as women determine themselves as feminine in contrast to masculine.
Problem: we have become subjects as one gender or the other. Behaviour, thinking, desire is also coloured and interwoven with gender. We are conform or disagree with what the balance of power allows as intelligent.
Solution/Butler: Feminism must try to get along without a subject "woman".
