Ballif, Michelle
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v19 n1 p51-70 1999

Suggests a reconceptualization of the rhetorical situation by re-engendering or transgendering the speaker/audience couple as "a hermaphrodite, as a con/fusion of Hermes, the god of messages, and Aphrodite, the goddess of love," as a way to invigorate rhetorical theory and current composition pedagogical practices.
