This article needs more sources establishing that the term is not specific to the works of Judith Butler. Alternately, it could be merged into Judith Butler. JCDenton2052 (talk) 17:34, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
- Google books for one gives over 650 different publications that use the term independent of the works of Judith Butler. Of course she is mentioned and discussed, as the creator of the theory. And anyone who has had passing exposure to the field of Yet merging this very important part of contemporary gender studies discourse into the initial theorist's biographical page is not a good solution. Adding information and fixing whatever problems this article has, is the better way to go.
- It is community practice to have a different standard of notability for specialized academics than say, politicians or football teams. Again, anyone with passing knowledge of contemporary gender studies, and even undergraduate social sciences, knows about gender performativity. Notability is clear.--Cerejota (talk) 12:28, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Clarification of line?Edit
"The performative acts which Butler is discussing she names to be performative and within the larger social, unseen world, they exist within performativity."
- I had problems reading that sentence too, but I think the part before the "and" just means that Butler calls performative acts "performative". Yeah, I guess the sentence should be rephrased. Go ahead, native speakers! -- UKoch (talk) 13:20, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Can someone that has actually completed a humanities degree please rewrite this article?Edit
I know these ideas are sometimes complex but presumably someone understands the subject enough to provide a coherent explanation. This article is written like a first draft of an essay written for lit theory 101 on an iphone, while riding a bus. I didn't understand anything. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 21:10, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
The lead paragraph needs to be rewritten to define or identify the topic, which it currently does not. You can read the entire lead, and still have no idea what Gender performativity actually is. Mathglot (talk) 02:59, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
