The difference between intercourse and sex happens to be important for the long-standing feminist work to debunk the declare that physiology is destiny… At its limitation, then, the sex/gender difference suggests a radical heteronomy of normal bodies and built genders with all the consequence that ‘being’ female and ‘being’ a woman are a couple of very different kind of being.
