More caffeinated philosophy tomorrow night (Wednesday, March 20th, 5:00-7:00 p.m.) at the Gnus Room. This time Im on a panel on gender, sex, and love. Ill probably talk about the social construction of gender roles. I dont know who else is on the panel. Come on by if youre in the area!
What is your view on gender? Do you believe the concept of “gender” should be done away with outright (a notion which I support) or do you take the queer theory approach and hold that gender is merely a “performance” (a notion I’ve never understood)? I’m curious.
I don’t think its being a social construction makes it unreal.
