Dichotomous gender still holds sway over the apparatus of perception. Here the notion of gendered style is used to make sense of the persistent “weight” of gender in the life of the individual subject. The author argues that gender accrues ontological weight in the intersubjective context of recognition. The sex/gender distinction is also discussed, bearing in mind Beauvoir’s statement that in order to be a woman, one becomes one.
