An analogy can be drawn from outside the field of gender studies to illustrate the point here. Psychological traits like extroversion and introversion may well have a basis in brain physiology, but we do not conclude from this that 'natural' extroverts should be prohibited or discouraged from reading books alone, or that 'natural' introverts should be banned from attending parties. But this is exactly what society tries to do with gender differences. Demonstrating, as Rosa Lee, does that gender differences between men and women are rooted in biology tells one absolutely nothing about how society should be organised, or what freedoms people should enjoy. But unfortunately it does provide ammunition to social conservatives who wish, as always, to use biological arguments to justify a status quo many find oppressive.
Lee writes: "The patriarcy deliberately planted the philosophical seeds of post-structuralist feminism to distract feminists from reality's true nature[...]." Her entire understanding of her opposition is limited to this sort of absurd conspiracy-theory.
