This is actually textbook accurate(or used to be) So I have a degree in sociology, back when I was in school the definition for "gender" was different. It had basically the same meaning as "gender roll" (sexist stereotype). Gender was the way a society saw an individual based on their biological sex. The roll of said sex was dependent the culture. It's honestly just jargon since gender and gender roll had the same meaning. As I was in school in the early 2010s I noticed that each semester would get more woke and focus on postmodernism rather than classical theory.

10 years later and apparently the definition of gender change to "a feeling". It literally changed definition in the textbooks. It's shame that a whole field of study is getting indoctrinated into postmodernism gender ideology. It will eventually discredit everything that sociology was studying.

It's role, not "roll"!

BTW, I upvoted you. You learned the same definition of gender, namely stereotyped sex role, or masculinity/femininity, that I learned in the 1970s.

Haha yes role, I'm gonna blame my phone for that.

So - the notorious Autocorrect strikes again! Once I typed on my phone "I have to go out" and autocorrect changed it to (and I am not kidding) "I have to go poo." (!!!) Luckily, I caught it before sending.
