Bless this comment.
So if you have to fill out a form and it's asking for your gender you would say male, but if it's asking for your sex you would say female? Because I feel like forms and stuff differ in their wording sometimes. So. I'm just wondering.
If it says gender you should put male or female; if is says sex you should write in a description like: Not too often, or not yet but I hope soon, or I like it on top or twice a day. A little detail to help them really get to know you.
Haha I'll keep that in mind next time I fill out my form at the doctor. I bet he'd like to know.
I honestly didn't know there was a difference till I read this post o: good to know!
I was explaining the difference of sex and gender to a friend once last year, and she called over the teacher and asked him about it. He said, "Well, they're the same thing." So I tried to explain it to him, and being an English teacher, he of course thought he was right (because "OH WELL I KNOW DEFINITIONS MUCH BETTER THAN YOU BLAH BLAH").
What do you expect. English is gender neutral. You should have asked your Spanish teacher.
It's also frustrating when people go on to say gender in general is purely a social construction formed after birth and so couldn't cause distress if mismatched with your biological sex.
Even if it is basically a social construct, it is still VERY distressing when you're mismatched.
As your neighborhood friendly trans* individual, I know firsthand. >.<;
It's also frustrating when someone comments on your post with something that has nothing to do with what you were talking about.
I know there is a difference, but I still say that ideally they should match. Gender came about because of biological things. I agree it's gone too far in limiting what each sex should think and like, but some things are promoted or discouraged by biological traits.
That was easy.
I know, especially when people forget that one identifies reproductive organs and the other is a social construct!
Very clever. :P
Wait, what was that last bit?
Sex is a verb and gender is a noun.
On a serious note though. Sex is fun and gender isn't. I don't get it, who gets those two confused?
Sex is spelled 'sex' while gender is spelled 'gender'. It's confusing sometimes.
