The 'sex/gender' distinction: a reconsideration Thompson, Denise en_US 2021-11-25T13:43:27Z 2021-11-25T13:43:27Z 1989 en_US
dc.description.abstract This article argues for getting rid of the term 'gender', because the distinction on which it rests falls into the very 'nature/nurture' trap it was designed to avoid. If 'gender' is the social aspect of the differences between the sexes, the implication is that 'sex' is not social and it still remains biological. But the main argument against using the term 'gender' in feminist discourse is that it serves to deny the existence of sex differences, and hence the hierarchical polarity of domination/subordination those 'differences' encode. en_US
