I mean for instance, the nature of the gaze is quite different. Whereas a male gaze would desire a female body represented, desire for the male body may or may not be the case in the gaze of the female.
This is where I may show my ignorance: why can you state so categorically that the male gaze would desire a female body, but allow variation for the female gaze viewing a male body? Isn't it the case that the male gaze may also in some cases not desire the female body - particularly when it's all over the floor in unnatural and rather messy configurations? :-)
Take the explosion of Tokiko in X: I find it very difficult to imagine that either Kamui or Fuuma are watching her with anything approaching desire (and I think that Kamui's reaction at the very least bears that out).
What am I missing?
