If gender is simply reflective of a declaration (I declare I am a man, woman, etc...) then what is the meaning in it? Sex is meaningful because it reflects a biological reality of significance. How could gender be relevant if it is only attached to a declaration?
How could gender be meaningful if it is only attached to a declaration?*
Many of you are conflating gender and sex. Gender is literally a way of feeling; you feel like a male or female. Is that a stupid and meaningless construct? It is in my opinion. Does that mean that you can all deny that it is a construct? No. Many of you are confusing gender with sex, which is based on your anatomy.
