      Thanks -- I guess I should have seen that was what they meant. (And, sorry to post essentially a duplicate question.)

      Seems to me the operative word here is "confounding."  As in, confounding gender and sexuality.  I'm surprised scholars with fairly long publishing resumes are doing this, at least in this century.  You'd think professional scholars of people would have the best schemata for such things.  Yeesh.
