More on the self and category making

Thanks for this.  It provides important grist in support of an argument for Cultures of Ability, and I've linked to it from there ... At the same time, there is something to be said for having a "double self," for "dual consciousness" as an attribute that puts one in a position to contribute to changing cultures.   Cf culture and individual indentities and gender identity as an ongoing brain construction.  For more along these general lines, see Deconstructing and reconstructing cultures and individuals.  Yes, we all negotiate between individual and cultural identities "to a greater or lesser extent."  Maybe we could find a way to think about that that doesn't require "stifling"?
