Author’s name: Deborah BlumTitle of article: The Gender Blur: Where Does Biology End and Society Take Over?Passages/QuotesResponses1. “And they - mostly - don’t grow up to be asaggressive as men.” (2)1. I recall a time when one of my friends toldme that she had been instructed by her mothernot to be bitchy or seem bitchy in any way forfear of being seen as threatening. I neverreally understood the fear until now.2. “‘Yes, we’re born with predispositions, butit’s society that amplifies them, exaggeratesthem. I believe that - except for the sexdifferences in aggression.” (2)2. While I agree, I have to wonder how thisaffects LGBTQ+ people. When such animportance is placed on biological sex, do youbecome more aggressive if you transition?3. “[Chimpanzees] kill females and infants toterrorize and intimidate.” (3)3. I’ve always found this to be a veryupsetting idea, that the ones who are taken arealways the women and infants - womenbecause they’re “homemakers” rather than“warriors” and infants because they’re withthe women. It’s never “men were slaughteredin the war to lessen morale”, even if that’strue - it’s always “the women were taken”.
