Explaining the concept of sex

5 Jul

Alice Dreger works with people at the edge of anatomy, such as conjoined twins and intersexed people. In her observation, it’s often a fuzzy line between male and female, among other anatomical distinctions. Which brings up a huge question: Why do we let our anatomy determine our fate?

As someone who struggles to explain the fine line between the binary of sexes we assign in our society, I think this talk (at least the first half) could be useful when discussing sex.
