Steeping myself in the loose leaves of hot rhetoric

Let's think about this for a does a person inform their own identity? Could it be that it is all wrapped up in gender definitions? This seems limiting and does not take into account other inner and outer influences that determine identity. Are the feminists right or is it just a matter of he said she said? Still, the struggles of the female gender are ubiquitous. Every personal definition of identity has to be filtered through the social web of indoctrination. So, although I am researching and applying feminist rhetoric to my work and my thesis, I am careful not to put all my theoretical eggs in the feminist basket.

  1. of course, then there are different situations for identity. The identity of you as a wife, sister, artist, teacher, these roles determine identity? does one's identity shift as one's role changes?
