Jump to: navigation, search

Dear Simonda, Dear colleagues, Sex is the physical and behavioural difference that distinguishes individual according to their functions in the reproductive process. (Encarta, 2009). For example, only men can determine the sex of a baby whiles only a woman can get pregnant. These characteristics are nominal and there possess natural dichotomies. Gender is a collective term for systems of social theories and belief that distinguishes between girls and boys, between women and men that are: 1. Learned 2. Change over time within a society and between societies. (Gender Considerations in Youth Enterprise Training, discussion paper by Elizabeth Simonda)

Sex is bilogical difference between male and female that cannot be changed. For example the reproductive role of women cannot be exchanged even by sex change. Gendr roles are socially defined and sometimes are specific to certain cultures.--Smauye 13:55, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
