Not necessarily, they're just something that has been created and defined by society and can therefore vary over time and across cultures.

Give an example of a social construct you might consider self-contradictory?

Disability could be a social construct. This i assume was developed to help those who have a disability, but instead might make them feel labelled and discriminated against.

Oh I see, this doesn't make the social construct self-contradictory though. It makes the effects of the social construct contradictory as it's having the opposite of the desired effect
