(Too) In depth analysis

I had a lit professor watch Fight Club because they had not seen it before. After she watched it, she said she did some searches online for analysis and she said that she came to find that Marla represents femininity and Tyler masculinity.

Now I disagree. The only thing girly or feminine thing about Marla is that she has a vagina. I mean, she's not your stertypical blonde barbie doll, and she certainly isn't a motherly character in any sort of way, so I don't see how she can be seen as representing all of womanhood.

Tyler as a symbol for man, I can see, but not clearly. I mean, he's not GI fucking Joe, but he still represents stregnth and unity.

Any opinions?
