I fail to see how forming a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or color, means that one must consider men and women to be identical. I would say just the opposite, since masculine and feminine are examples of Yin and Yang, which are literally as different as are night and day. As for the second and third objects, which deal with encouraging study and investigating laws of nature, how does seeing differences between men and women discourage that? The motto of the Theosophical Society is not "there is no religion higher than homogeneity."
