Sex stereotyping

with one comment

Kevin Drum has a good post on how sex stereotyping (often called “gender” stereotyping, even when it’s obvious from context that the issue is male/female, not masculine/feminine) works in practice. Worth reading, and has good links.

I’m not sure why people want to use “gender” when the appropriate word is “sex”—maybe just to avoid the “naughty” word “sex”?
