You might have your student
take a look at this paper.
Rudes, Blair A. and Bernard Healy. 1979. "'Is She for Real?': The
Concepts of Femaleness and Maleness in the Gay World." In Madeleine
Mathiot (ed.) Ethnolinguistics: Boas, Sapir and Whorf Revisited. The

exchanging notes with her. Her e-mail address is as follows: Naoko Ogawa
