a different distribution of sexual difference
Can any body explain what "Chinese society then evidences not a simple repression of a sexual difference, but a different distribution of sexual difference" means?
Kristeva points out that, in China, there is little difference between men and women in terms of their behavior in many aspects of everyday life. Trinh finds Kristeva’s surface observations about the relationship between genders in Chinese society useful. Kristeva notes that Chinese society then evidences “not a simple repression of a sexual difference, but a different distribution of sexual difference”; Trinh agrees that this difference between genders is a matter that is constantly contested or renegotiated in Chinese society. Again in agreement with Kristeva, Trinh argues that the constant challenging of difference that Kristeva observed in the “Third World” makes it impossible to set into place sexist “power-based values” supportive of patriarchal privilege there, or to solidify an “authority-based subject.”
