    When you refer to big-enders, do you mean people like Kim Kardashian?  I don't see how they rate their own special gender.

    In society an attack helicopter is not a term that has set pronouns to refer to it in the form of a live human being, this causes it to be something that you first need to mainstream to truly expect people to identify you as given that neither 'he' she' or 'they' applies but instead 'it' does.

    Just depends on prespective. If you associate gender = biological sex, there are only two genders. If you associate gender = a collection of social and cultural norms, you'll likely find an 'other' catagory to exist.

    'Gender' simply isn't as specific as 'sex'.

    Gender is not a social construct.  The male brain is different from the female brain according to the NIH(https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-funded-study-reveals-how-differences-male-female-brains-emerge).  The article states, "From this developmental state, distinctly male or female features eventually emerge,” said Dr. Hobert."

    If this is due to how males and females were raised in one particular society, then explain why every society that has ever existed on this planet has had pretty much the exact same gender roles.  Males were interested in universally male things and females were interested in universally female things.  There were exceptions, but these exceptions were rare and the people who had them still identified with their biological sex.

    If gender is a social construct, then what does it mean to be a male and what does it mean to be a female?
  • @Alec this may be the most uninformed comment I have ever read on this site. In Scotland the men wear kilts, basically a skirt. Do you have an interest in that? In Victorian England it was common for men to wear lots of makeup, do you have an interest in that? In some African countries it's common for men who are friends to walk around with their pinkies locked together, do you have an interest in that? In Japanese Kabuki theatre it's been common for men to play the roles of women, do you have an interest in that?

    All these things I listed are common in their respective societies for males and not females. These are special circumstances, or rare things, they are as ingrained as men in America having an interest in sports. There is no such thing as universally male things in every society that has ever existed. Please educate yourself before you try to sound so sure of yourself next time.

    I'll be willing to concede that some aspects of how people act are from society, such as how they dress in some countries.  However, men in virtually every society that has ever existed are:

    -More likely to be the "breadwinners" in the family.
    -More likely to be competitive.
    -More likely to be aggressive.
    -More likely to be fast and strong, as in primitive societies, they were the hunters.
    -More likely to be imprisoned because they are more likely to be violent.
    -More likely to be interested in sex.
    -More likely to want to be promiscuous.
    -Less likely to be into raising kids as women.
    -Less likely to take ample amounts of time off from work because of a sickness in the family, even when they earn less then their wives.
