Ep 4: Gender vs. Sex (Ft. Maya Glenn)

Can you remember the first time that you heard gender and sex are distinct? This week, Yancy is joined with Maya who breaks down what Gender Essentialism is. The theory suggests that a person’s essence is either feminine/female or masculine/male. Maya expands on how this concept is flawed and brings nuance to sexuality, gender and sex through a sociological lens.
