- Cognitive cultural theorists have rarely taken up sex, sexuality, or gender identity. When they have done so, they have often stressed the evolutionary sources of gender differences. In 'Sexual Identities', Patrick Hogan extends his previous work on identity to discuss the complexities of sex, the diversity of sexuality, and the limited scope of gender.
