Is the question of gender one where the contradiction can be sought in the biological polarity of male-female?  Certainly the fact of gender oppression, historically specific at any given time, but consistent in its existence as just that for all of recorded history (with a few discrete and questionable exceptions), is indisputable.


CB: The dialectic of gender is related to but not identical with the dialectic of sex. Gender seems obviously to be rooted in an analogy to sex, but goes beyond it

Most of history is not recorded, of course. So, there may not be gender as defined above, for most of human history.
