It does, actually, but it still feels like the word is unnecessarily imprecise. It may simply be that I still haven't entirely wrapped my mind around it, but it seems to carry a slightly different meaning in each of the realms where it is used. Just running with your example, would it be safe to say that it is through the acceptance and "performance" of socially-defined gender roles that leads to the "performativity" of gender? When those roles are broken/transcended/changed, does the creation of meaning change as well, or is it more of a fixed conceptualization?

(My dancing bear-like waltzing with the term is demonstrating that a full decade out of academia has made me soft and weak. ^_^)
