Gender dichotomy is probably the most primary dichotomy internalized in human thinking. It acts as a prototype for all the later dichotomies, in a sense inaugurating dichotomous thinking in general-first within the imaginary of the parent who holds the soon to be born infant in his or her mind-and afterwards within the mind of the infant itself. This chapter focuses on the conditions that enable the establishing of a dialectic and unsaturated gender space-one that enables both a concrete and fantasized creative mobility between the two gender poles-versus the conditions that generate a polar, saturated, gender dichotomous stagnation and stasis.
