Thanks for this examination. You make a cogent point.



Perhaps, although this seems a bit of a stretch when we see him write of the 'natural' and desired role of woman as being a slave to 'Mann', that it is necessary that she should be fearful of 'Mann', and so on and so on. In light of such statements, it is difficult to believe that he meant for Ubermensch to apply to woman also. He explicitly repudiates the idea of female emancipation. I don't think he could be described as a 'feminist'.
