Also, THIS is a fascinating lecture:
Code: Select all
If we had a Cunt of the Century award, John Money would be an obvious nominee.
Probably some justification for that, not least for his role in the "botched circumcision" of David Reimer, although I haven't yet seen any indication he was the proximate cause of that.
But hard to argue against his essential idea that there's a difference between biological sex - conventionally and currently defined as the production of gametes - and "gender as a role
" which has, with some apparent justification, been extended to
"the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with one sex".
In any case, it's kind of interesting to see how the different interpretations are evolving. Unfortunately "gender" and "sex" are too often conflated which is the basis of some egregious equivocation, not to mention the demented idea that one can actually change one's sex which is causing no end of unnecessary grief. Seems rather important promote the more rational and coherent definitions that separate the two concepts.
