Microblogs: What it means when we say sex is a social construction

Since J.K. Rowling’s (yes, that J.K. Rowling) transphobic tweet last week, conversations on Twitter around topics of sex, gender, and trans individuals have been going on nonstop. Far too many of these conversations are transphobic and show stubborn disregard for any kind of accuracy or learning. 

This blog post is simply a compilation of the microblogs I posted on Twitter explaining why we (experts in gender and/or biology) say sex is not ‘real.’
