Abstract: Gender theorists have been defining sex, gender, and sexuality as separate and distinct entities for several decades. Newer terms, such as gender presentation, gender performance, gender identity, sexual orientation, and sexual identity have been added to this lexicon and differentiated from each other with succinct definitions. Theoretical ideas hypothesize about the ways in which each of these is related to the other aspects, with most arguing that gender is based on sex, that sexual orientation is who you are attracted to, and that your gender presentation and performance are not informed by or serve to inform your sexuality. Based on these definitions in academia and practice, we often think that people who discuss sexuality in reference to questions about gender are confused and/or uninformed. In an effort to clearly differentiate between these terms we have failed to consider how gender presentation and performance actually is informed by sexuality. While most would argue that gender is based on sex, using interviews from 35 participants, I study the role that sexuality plays in helping to shape and determine gender presentation and performance. This paper uses theoretical understandings from West and Zimmerman (1987), Hale (1997), Fausto-Sterling (1993), and Butler (1997) to discuss the ways in which sexuality, particularly heteronormativity, might be a driving force in gender presentation and performance. Also discussed are the ways in which this operates for those who do not strictly identify as heterosexual.

"Gender Constitution, Discourse, and Assertions: A Heideggerian Inquiry Into Gender Performativity and Ontological Gender Neutrality" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p234150_index.html>

Abstract: In this essay, I contend that Dasein?s gender neutrality can be established as an ontological necessity within Heidegger?s Being and Time. I show that through Heidegger?s conceptions of Discourse and Assertions, the assumed ontological categories and distinctions that are commonly applied to gender can be disrupted, or de-naturalized. Through this, Heidegger?s work can seen as raising the possibility of understanding and performatively resisting normative explanations for items such as gender by confronting them for what they really are: ontic social constructs. The importance of this work is two fold: first, it opens the door to re-approach Heidegger?s work in the field of communication through his conception of Discourse, and second, it endeavors to provide a Heideggarian grounding for feminist and queer theorist inquiries into the ontological and social status of gender.
