This article compares Angela Carter's The Passion of New Eve  to Lois Gould's A Sea-Change and makes some interesting points about the two works. However, in the end, the author argues that neither ultimately provides an alternative ideology for a de-gendered or a re-gendered world. Unfortunately, it seems we are trapped in the established paradigms of masculine and feminine and can't enter into a mindset of genderless-ness.
