In Leslie Fiedler's The Stranger in Shakespeare, woman is the ultimate 
other. I don't remember Fiedler saying this about Portia--he vividly 
characterises her as a 'xenophobic medisante', but this may indirectly 
be your source.

You might like to try Alan Sinfield's essay in Alternative Shakespeares 
2 David: "How to read M of V without being heterosexist" where a 
sophisticated series of oppositions around the question of gender and 
sexuality is explored.

Cheers,
