Sex vs Gender 

  • Sex refers to a set of biological attributes in humans and animals. It is primarily associated with physical and physiological features including chromosomes, gene expression, hormone levels and function, and reproductive/sexual anatomy. Sex is usually categorized as female or male but there is variation in the biological attributes that comprise sex and how those attributes are expressed. This binary way of categorizing biological sex is primarily rooted in Western cultures and may not apply to all cultures around the world. 

  • Gender refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviors, expressions and identities of girls, women, boys, men and

Women’s heart disease symptoms different than those in men

LUMBERTON — Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both women and men.

Learning to recognize symptoms early is of great importance, but it may be challenging for women because their symptoms are different than those in men.

The classical presentation of a heart attack is central chest discomfort lasting a few minutes intermittently. Patients of both genders usually describe crushing, squeezing pain or fullness sensation. However, for women, chest pain may not be as intense or it may not be the most bothersome symptom. Frequently, women complain of pain down the arms, jaw,

Ask Amy: Woman in startup should strike out | Lifestyle

Dear Amy: I work for a small entertainment startup, consisting of five cisgender white men. I got in on the ground floor during the pandemic.

As the only female and youngest/newest member, I’ve felt undervalued and excluded, despite being the only one with a four-year degree.

So far, I’d brushed these concerns aside because of my youth and lack of experience.

However, two weeks ago, politics came up and I realized that several of my co-workers (who are also co-owners) have beliefs that fly in the face of social justice, such as denying the existence of white privilege and calling

How heart attack symptoms differ in men and women

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S., but only half of women recognize it as their top killer.

Bon Secours S. Francis Registered Nurse Meredith Thackston said many of her patients know heart attack symptoms that are typically seen in men, but that women often have very different symptoms and many don’t know what they are.

“Your classic symptoms are ‘there’s an elephant sitting on my chest and I can’t breathe,” she said. “Some people just have back

Rush Limbaugh called feminists feminazis. Women learned not to care what he thought.

To Limbaugh, this made Fluke a “feminazi.” That moniker was his calling card — and, to the extent that it was used to short-circuit any real discussion of feminism in millions of American households, it is now part of his legacy.

The man died on Wednesday at the age of 70, leaving behind an army of listeners, thousands of hours of content, and a diabolical eight-letter portmanteau.

“Feminazi” took the concept of women’s rights, and the concept of the most murderous, evil political philosophy of the 20th century, and lashed them together. It put advocating for gender equality on the

‘Promising Young Woman,’ Covid and the women giving up alcohol to fight the patriarchy

Is alcohol having a #MeToo moment?

Director Emerald Fennell’s debut feature, “A Promising Young Woman,” centers on medical school-dropout Cassie, played by Carey Mulligan, as she takes revenge on men who prey on inebriated women at bars. Flipping the script on our often alcohol-fueled rape culture, Cassie pretends to be plastered on her nightly missions to see how many “nice guys” try to take advantage of her. A disturbingly high number do. One by one, they receive her dead-sober message: You made a really bad call, bro.

A growing list of authors, bloggers, groups and celebrities are promoting as

Hathras Accused Use “Indian Culture” As Defense, Claim Innocence

The brutal gang-rape and murder of a dalit woman in UP’s Hathras sent shockwaves throughout the country. The aftermath of the rape saw an institutionally facilitated cover up, where the family of the victim was stripped off any dignity, locked up while the victim’s body was secretly cremated, and then blamed for honour-killing their daughter (which in an upper-caste practice).

Five months since the shameful incident, and the victim’s family still awaits justice and the legal process is delayed due to procedural issues, despite instructions from UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to fast-track the case.

On February 10, the court

Man’s awful chat-up line about woman’s ‘wide pelvis bone’ has left many ‘cringing’

When it comes to chat-up lines, most are cheesy at best, but some are just downright awful and creepy.

And one woman, named Rachel, was recently sent some particularly bad ones from a guy online.

Taking to Twitter, Rachel shared a look at three messages she was sent by a potential date, but if his words are anything to go by, they won’t be going out anytime soon.

She posted a screenshot of the conversation, which shows the messages clearly and it’s fair to say they did aything but woo her.

They read: “Anyway, u also seem like an easy-going
