Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But in fact they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.
— Margaret Fuller, Woman in the Nineteenth Century, 1845


For me, the most striking thing about this is the date: 1845.
