By Simone de Beauvoir
"Comment l. a. femme fait-elle l'apprentissage de sa , remark l'éprouve-t-elle, dans quel univers se trouve-t-elle enfermée, quelles évasions lui sont permises, voilà ce que je chercherai à décrire. Alors seulement nous pourrons comprendre quels problèmes se posent aux femmes qui, héritant d'un lourd passé, s'efforcent de forger un avenir nouveau. Quand j'emploie les mots "femme" ou "féminin" je ne me réfère évidemment à aucun archétype, à aucune immuable essence ; après l. a. plupart de mes affirmations il faut sous-entendre "dans l'état actuel de l'éducation et des mœurs". Il ne s'agit pas ici d'énoncer des vérités éternelles mais de décrire le fond commun sur lequel s'élève toute lifestyles féminine singulière."

In doing so, those diﬀerences must be(come) clear-cut—a border must be drawn between the two, creating a dichotomy so there is no confusion about who is where in the hierarchy. This takes time, centuries even, to really harden our perception of human nature. It takes laws, but worse it takes discipline, primarily in the form of terror and violence, to pound a sense of hierarchy into us. Despite the possibility that the state and capitalism may be able to function without these imposed borders, the borders must still be destroyed.
An anarchist queer theory might give us more eﬀective ways of relating than the Oppression Olympics (a set of games no one really wins anyway).
