Subject: SHAKSPER: Sex and Gender in Shakespeare’s England
A glance at the blog in question reveals it to be depressingly uninsightful with regard to boy actors – and probably also for both sex and gender. (The author’s Latin is none too hot either: it should be “curriculum vitae”.)
A much better understanding can be found in Juliet Dusinberre’s essay
“Boys Becoming Women in Shakespeare’s Plays”, and also in the Introduction to her Arden3 edition of “As You Like It”.
