The difference between gender and sex with co-host Ryan O’Connor

Gender is something that has transformed, and is transforming all the time. There used to be just male and female, but not anymore…

So is it time for a world without gender?

Most of us grew up with the basic assumption that the world can be divided into two boxes. Gender and sex were once interchangeable terms.  However, that is not the case at all because people are extremely complex.

Gender involves so many assumptions about how you act, how you dress, what like and don’t like etc. There are social constructs that define how you represent yourself to the world based on the biological and physiological characteristics you had at birth.

With each day, society becomes more aware and accepting of unique ways in which people want to live their life and how they wish to express themselves.

Join co-host Ryan and I in this fun discussion of gender, sex and identity. This conversation is very important and relevant.
