i had a whole post responding to this and i have no idea what happened to it
i have plenty of suggestions if you're interested in learning some more i think Judith Butler's theory of gender performativity might be of interest to you. she's pretty out of the box, but...that's why i love her
this theory is one of the basic tenants of my idea of feminism. i wouldn't recommend reading her entire writings on the topic unless you want to invest some serious time into doing so as she's a ridiculously difficult read. i recall spending 45 minutes on the first paragraph alone.

Introduction to Judith Butler, Module on Gender and Sex
i wrote a paper where i examined the homo-erotic and performative aspects of hyper-masculine behaviour in the movie A Clockwork Orange, if a concrete application of this theory interests you
i also highly recommend exploring the theory of intersectionality and reading Audre Lorde's essay "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master's House" addressing and critiquing the problem of racism in feminism. Views of feminism held by people of colour can be VERY different than those held by white feminists.

Feminist postcolonial theory: a reader - Google Books
that should be enough, i'm sure
