Julie Sedivy's thesis is provocative and she's seems onto something here. But, good old fashioned feminist dykes that we are, we found ourselves wondering whether Trump's speaking style might reveal further insights into his relationship to gender, that malleable and someimes uncomfortable construct within which we all navigate our lives.
- Does Trump come across as such an inauthentic sleaze because we feel the contradiction between his masculine presentation and his feminine speaking pattern?
- Is his comic book masculinity actually a cover for gender insecurity?
- Does his childish attraction to women who display Barbie doll femininity derive from inability to deal with more adult experience of gender?
- Oh gosh, is Trump -- hidden even from himself in the deep recesses of his psyche -- actually gay?
