The paper discusses how sex is a function of biology and physiology while gender is the result of sociological factors. The paper goes on to identify the physiological and mental differences between males and females and discusses how they allow them to perform distinct roles in society. The paper notes that the differences between the genders show only their uniqueness and diversity from each other and should in no way mean they are unequal.
From the Paper:"To demonstrate the above argument, take for instance when we were still kids starting to learn how to make friends and socialize. Children are already aware of their sexuality at their young age. They know what a boy and a girl is because of the physiological differences. Now when boys and girls get together, they are getting familiar with their roles. Girls play with dolls and doll houses and begin to learn nesting skills. Boys play rougher games and begin understanding their protection roles. Although these examples are somewhat stereotypical, they are what actually happen during children's formative years. Men are designed to be more aggressive, and also, more focused on abstract and infrastructure-type issues; women are designed to be more emotional, more nurturing, and focused more on paying attention to the whole well-being of the individual. (Stevens, 2009)
"Apart from the initial biological and sociological states and traits between the genders or sexes, the differences reflect also on their aptitudes, choices, abilities the affect their personal and professional lives. Thus the innate differences are what distinguish males from females but the differences do not mean they are unequal. Indeed there are several generalizations that can be made between males and females from the biological and physiological perspective."
