Anon 2: The ‘Sex’ in ‘Biological Sex’ is not a social construct. It refers to the fact that we are either XX or XY and were born with genitalia that comes from that chromosome pairing. How we *identify/label* that sex, be it masculine/male or feminine/female, is the social construct because the identification/label is often used interchangeably with gender. This is why medical institutions prefer to know your Biological Sex instead of your Gender. XX and XY have different general health risks.
Sex is determined by doctors based on your genitals. If you have something close enough to what they believe males should have you’re called a male. If you have something close enough to what they believe females should have you’re called a female. Because genitals are diverse
not all genitals are what we stereotypically think of male or female. Some people have medical issues or have medical exams that reveal that their chromosomes, hormones, or internal sex organs don’t match what is usually thought of as male or female.
We made up these categories and thought that male always equals penis, testicles, testosterone, XY and female always equals vagina, vulva, uterus, ovaries, clitoris, estrogen, XX but that’s not true. People have a combination of genitals, sex organs, chromosomes and hormones and we need multiple tests to figure out who exactly has what. Because most people don’t get these tests done unless something medically happens that they need the test done we don’t know how many people have these variances. It is a social construct that says that people born with penises are men and people born with vulvas and vaginas are women. Although it’s true that many people born with penises many times have specific medical needs that differ from people born with vaginas and vice versa it’s not necessary for medical reasons. When you see a doctor they ask you many different questions including medical history. Designated sex alone is not enough to know any and all medical problems that could occur. In fact the assumption that all those born with certain genitals have certain medical needs can cause many health problems because of hormonal differences and chromosomal differences.
So yeah no, sex is a social construct too.
Sex is not a social construct, first of all. A combination of hormones, genetics, chromosomes, genitals, brain chemistry, and other things determine biological sex. Last time I checked, chemicals weren’t determined by society. A social construct implies that it changes across societies and across cultures, and is generally not consistent over hundreds of thousands of years, and even across species. The aesthetics of a penis does nothing to determine how much more or less of a man you are, and how your vagina looks does not mean that you are more or less of a woman (speaking from a purely biological standpoint)
In literally over 99% of the population, genitals and sex match up. Men have penises, testosterone, and XY chromosomes; women have vaginas, estrogen, and XX chromosomes. Apart from the .3% trans and .05% intersex, men and women have biological characteristics that they share among their biological sex.
And doctors ask about various things relating to sex and history because people with a certain sex might be at risk for more things, and less of a risk for certain things, or may have a concern that is unique to them entirely (biological males don’t get ovarian cysts)They as about medical history because certain lifestyle choices, such as smoking, promiscuous sex, career, and risk taking leaves you at risk for certain things - which are rarely related to biological sex. While you are correct that biology does not necessarily determine all future medical problems, it’s a good indicator as to what can go wrong, and what treatments would be effective. Men and women can react to certain treatments differently, and may require more or less of a drug.
Let’s take a different example. It’s estimated that 1 in 12 men, and 1 in 200 women are color blind. This translates to about .6% of the population. Does that mean that we should not teach about colors anymore, since there is less than 1% of the population who it would apply to? Or should we teach about how there are some people who are colorblind, and we should do things to accommodate them when they need it because of a unique characteristic? The obvious answer is the second one. If we were to abolish an entire practice of science because of a few rare exceptions, then we wouldn’t have any science practices because of the exceptions.
Fucking thank you! I’m so sick of people insisting the exception makes the rule.
I hope feminists one day realize that we’re anti-feminists not because we hate equality but because we hate what they’re doing in the name of equality.
… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.
More like you morons completely forget your ancestors did the same damn shit and then try to change the definition of words to exempt yourself from criticism.
Yes because PoC have set up a system where People of Color have ~poc privilege~, don’t confuse “racism” and “prejudice”.
Actually yes they have.
Mayans and Aztecs weren’t carving people’s hearts outs of their chests for the gods.
The Mongols killing at least 30,000,000 people?
Along with Mao and his death toll
Armenian genocide at the hands of the Turkish?
Japanese Empire raping, killing, and looting all over the Pacific?
Native Americans being tribes of warrior societies who constantly fought each other?
Iroquois tribes being imperialistic land grabbing machines of brutality?
Yuan-Ming dynasty transition?
Qing conquering of the Ming dynasty?
An Lushan Rebellion? .
Somalian Civil War?

Nairobi Mall attack?
Don’t forget that other countries besides America exist, and damn sure don’t change the definition of fucking words, you dumb cunt.
I believe the phrase they used was “shots fired”?
