You're not going to give your own thoughts?

I'd say no.

It seems that if you had the motivation to create this thread that you do have a clear interest in it, and do have your own thoughts on the matter.

What are you going to reveal?

I don't even know what social construct means. I've tried to ignore it from day one; it sounds like bull****.

Nah that's punching a bit below my weight. Metaphorically speaking, mind.

Lol, she's been the one stalking my posts and bad jokes with a passion.

Wasn't interested in the first place.

Anyway, you seem a little more jolly than usual. Something made you happy?

You're right, I went ahead and checked what the parameters are for social constructionism; they are as follows:

(0) In the present state of affairs, X is taken for granted; X appears to be inevitable.
(1) X need not have existed, or need not be at all as it is.
(2) X is quite bad as it is.
(3) We would be much better off if X were done away with, or at least radically transformed.

Letting X equal "The Dragonborn's terrible posts" and we see that sexual preference might not be a social construct, but your ****ing awful contributions are.

To what extent do you believe sexual desire and sexual preference to be biologically driven vs. socially constructed? Can one choose the object of one's desire, or is it a purely chemical reaction?

I think this post of yours is a social construct in that case.
