Yes. The main reason people get confused over their gender is due to the traditional gender stereotypes imo

No, gender is a biological construct. The way that genders are taught to act is a social construct.

It's not a simple case of 'yes' or 'no', it's both social and biological.

That's a good way of thinking about it and I agree that traditional gender roles are a social construct. It's somewhat confusing that "gender" and "traditional gender roles" are often used interchangeably.

Oh okay then, you got yourself a nice variety of options.

good to see you how you thought this through.

Some people rush into things when making a poll, but you strike me as a person who likes to take his time.:top: And includes everyone in the mix as to not leave anyone out.

By definition, yes.

I don't know how you could argue against this. Its like saying that the 2+2 isn't 4.

You've confused 'gender' with 'sex'. Nice try, though.

NO. Gender is not a biological construct. Sex is biological. Gender is self perspective.

The proper term for the biological construct (if it can be called that) is 'sex.' Gender itself is a social construct.

Penis=male=man, vagina=female=woman.

I equate gender and sex to be identical. As sex is biological I see gender as biological. It's just a synonym IMO.
