Hi everyone,

I am a third year University student writing my dissertation about the reputation of the Royal Family and I would be very grateful if you could spend two minutes answering the below survey! Thank You

www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZFLQYLV

Can I suggest you put this on chat or aibu or other busier pages?

LineysRunner Thu 30-Nov-17 02:29:41

Everyone else puts royal stuff in Chat - I'd give it a go!

And you preferably need a box that asks for my sex. Or allows to to specify that? Thanks.

sorry i started doing the survey but stopped when I was asked for my 'gender'.

It is odd being asked about what other people think about the royal family.

Done!

Why do people object to being asked tbeor gender?

Why do people object to being asked tbeor gender? Because gender is the wrong word.

I was born as a specific biological sex. Female, as it happens.

Gender is a very different thing. It's the social construction of ideas around 'sex and sexuality and sexual characteristics' - it's an artificial cultural creation that we may or may not even be fully aware of.

It's not a posh word for sex.

My 'gender' is a construct I'm highly critical of, so you could argue I'm out of alignment with it.

I just want to tick the 'female sex' box.

LineysRunner fair enough x

Thank you reading my reply so graciously. Much appreciated.

That's ok. I have female bits. In female. I never give it Mick thought. I have a son who is 2 and i want him to think being a human means he can do anything biologically possible but I don't really think about it. He loves dolls and trains and pink and sheep and Mr Tumble and those girl genies but I don't overly think about it - but what that can do is make you thoughtless so i appreciate you taking the time to explain it x

Thanks I needed to read a sensible post on sex and gender.
