I'm curious -- does one have to be a post-colonial to write post(-)colonial criticism?  Seems to me you would.  Edward Said, the founding father of this school, could legitimately claim that right, but not many espousing its values today are of that affiliation, from what I can tell.  Similarly, can males write feminist criticism?  Possibly, but that would open them up to obvious criticism, so why not apply that standard to non-po-cos?
