This article reminds me of various comments [personal profile] teaotter has made, that one huge problem with modern constructions of gender is that definitions of male and female have become increasingly narrow

Yeah, I feel that too. Like, I think there was a push particularly in the 70s and 80s to broaden the categories and disrupt the stereotypes, and recently the focus has shifted to creating more categories -- which can inadvertently reinforce stereotypes. I don't begrudge anyone their identity, and I understand how important and empowering it can be to find a label that fits; I just don't want the existence of other identities (particularly overlapping ones such as demi-girl, etc) to imply that my identity is getting narrower and no longer has room for me.
