Does Male and Female Poetry Exist?

Here is a short Guardian (UK) article that explores whether there is such thing as a female poem. The subject was explored when a poetry festival and society combined and held a symposium on 'the female poem,' which had unexpectedly heavy attendance.

Here is what seems to be behind the question: "man is defined as a human being and a woman as female," so women worry more about gender and whether gender affects their writing, and men are nervous about reading the poetry of women.
