wait... if your poor and have good grades you get financial aid regardless of anything else.
military service does get you extra stuff, but that should happen.
Well biologically you can find animals displaying the difference between sex and gender, while rare it does happen.
well on the biologic aspect, I call it sex and we agree. there is no disagreement.
however, there has been recognized a social aspect that is completely seperate from the biologic. how we express ourselves.
that's the reason I brought it up, of course we cant agree, we arent talking about the same thing. (not you and me, the entire country)
It matters when your going to college. for example. when your trying out for financial aid. if ur a male and u havent signed up for the draft or not ur not elligable for financial aid. thats one exmaple out of a billion
I'm speaking on the biological aspect. When I refer to Gender. Youre making more than it is. it does matter.
The only way gender or sex matters is if you're romantically or sexually interested in an individual. Which for most people is an extremely small portion of their lives.
of course every aspect of who we are matters in some sense.
I'm guessing the big problem with this discussion is going to be the definition of gender and whether it's the same as sex.
you have a man, but that man can be macho, effeminate, or anywhere in between.
the man/female is the biological sex.
the macho/effeminate is the social gender. they way they act.
I understand that some may feel the 2 words are interchangeable, but what's the point of having 2 completely interchangeable words?
Gender matters. In a lot of aspects of our lives, how we view things. It matters.
