"Because the crisis conditions for the theorization of Chinese feminism are as puissant as the theoretical resources Chinese intellectuals and ideologists read in the project of transvaluation, to that degree Chinese feminism is a Chinese project.

That is, the doctrines and ideologies of scientific evolutionary heterosexuality became normative expressions of human nature."
