Today, we had a lecture where the lecturer made it very, very clear that those who answered exam questions referring to ‘male’ and ‘female’ as “genders” or otherwise implying that anything other than male or female are biological realities would be penalised. In my lecturer’s own words:

“Sex is a biological state. Gender is a social construct.”

UPDATE: Y’alllllllllll, this lecturer has just delivered the goods. She’s now talking about sex-based limits placed on female reproductive choices and the social effects (including economic and cultural) of limiting women’s access to healthcare 😭

Sex is a biological state. Gender is a social construct.

Women in my part of the world have been severely wokescolded these past few days so these words, as obvious and innocuous as they should be, have really lifted my spirits.

Power to you and your awesome lecturer!

Good on your school. We need our doctors to be as in touch with reality as possible.

Brilliant!

(And fancy even being in a situation where the lecturer needed to say that, or that saying it is cause for celebration.)

I'm so happy for you. But I think Medical Schools would have to remain tethered to Biological Reality. They can't afford to be Gender Ideologically captured. Doctors will have the lives of people in there hands.

Glad you are enjoying your classes.
