Some may suggest that a guide for women in religious studies is itself sexist. Please note, however, that sexism is not about focusing on women or men. Rather, it is a form of discrimination, like racism, aimed at women because of their sex/gender. Of course, postmodern deconstructions of sex/gender render it increasingly difficult to say with certainty just which persons are women. It is increasingly easy to see where and how discrimination takes place, and transgender people are very often the objects of discrimination.
