Becoming a Woman: Trans Women and Male Violence

Elizabeth Spelman (1988) has influentially argued against genderrealism with her particularity argument. Roughly: gender realistsmistakenly assume that gender is constructed independently of race,class, ethnicity and nationality. If gender were separable from, forexample, race and class in this manner, all women would experiencewomanhood in the same way. And this is clearly false. For instance,Harris (1993) and Stone (2007) criticise MacKinnon's view, that sexualobjectification is the common condition that defines women's gender,for failing to take into account differences in women's backgroundsthat shape their sexuality. The history of racist oppressionillustrates that during slavery black women were‘hypersexualised’ and thought to be always sexuallyavailable whereas white women were thought to be pure and sexuallyvirtuous. In fact, the rape of a black woman was thought to beimpossible (Harris 1993). So, (the argument goes) sexualobjectification cannot serve as the common condition for womanhood since it varies considerably depending on one's race and class.[]

Catharine MacKinnon develops her theory of gender as a theory ofsexuality. Very roughly: the social meaning of sex (gender) is createdby sexual objectification of women whereby women are viewed andtreated as objects for satisfying men's desires (MacKinnon1989). Masculinity is defined as sexual dominance, femininity assexual submissiveness: genders are “created through theeroticization of dominance and submission. The man/woman differenceand the dominance/submission dynamic define each other. This is thesocial meaning of sex” (MacKinnon 1989, 113). For MacKinnon,gender is constitutively constructed: in defining genders (ormasculinity and femininity) we must make reference to social factors(see Haslanger 1995, 98). In particular, we must make reference to theposition one occupies in the sexualised dominance/submission dynamic:men occupy the sexually dominant position, women the sexuallysubmissive one. As a result, genders are by definitionhierarchical and this hierarchy is fundamentally tied to sexualisedpower relations. The notion of ‘gender equality’, then,does not make sense to MacKinnon. If sexuality ceased to be amanifestation of dominance, hierarchical genders (that are definedin terms of sexuality) would cease to exist.

One may want to critique the three accounts outlined by rejectingthe particular details of each account. (For instance, see Spelman[1988, chapter 4] for a critique of the details of Chodorow'sview.) A more thoroughgoing critique has been levelled at the generalmetaphysical perspective of gender realism that underlies thesepositions. It has come under sustained attack on two grounds: first,that it fails to take into account racial, cultural and classdifferences between women (particularity argument); second, that itposits a normative ideal of womanhood (normativity argument).
