Thread: Gender is NOT a social construction

  1. #1

    Default Gender is NOT a social construction

    While discussing gay marriages I pointed out there are differences between males and females crucial for upbringing of a well balanced child. I was told that wasn't true and that 'gender was a social construction'.

    It appears it is not. Significant differences between female and male brains do exist and these are resposnible for male and female behavior.

    Also, I thought that "Today's science is a competition in the art of Political Correctness."

    Oh by the way however, I do agree that gender is not a social construction however.

    Men have mickeys, women don't. (Cept Hayley maybe)

    I've yet to hear a good argument yet though as to what having or not having a mickey has to do with raising children

    Possibly, although some aspects of gender identity might well be.

    All our friend has shown by citing that article is that there are certain biological differences between men and women. Good for him. It might have been more impressive, however, if anyone disagreed with this.

    What he has failed to show is what those differences actually are, and what political positions one should take on the basis of them (including, as you say, what difference having a penis makes to raising children).
