„Creation of Sex? Gender?“ is a book about questions all around sex, gender and queerness: „Creation of Sex? Gender? questions creation and usage of terms sex and gender on social and individual levels in the fields of medicine, biology, legislation, education, language, politics, activism, human rights and history. We discuss sex and gender as identities and forms of personal expression, but also as social constructs, roles and norms, and as basis of classification, inequality and discrimination.“
