I guess I'm truly old fashioned.  I could not do serious feminist criticism.  I'd feel like a trans-sexual, and the same goes for whatever the equivalent state is when doing po-co.

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?
