“Gender is culturally constructed: hence gender is neither the casual result of sex nor as seemingly fixed as sex.” – Judith Butler in Gender Trouble pg9-10
“They [medical practitioners] also encourage the idea that children are actually born with gender and contradict the idea that gender is a cultural construction.” – Anne Fausto-Sterling in Sexing the Body pg76
“Such organizations [fraternities] rarely got together without enjoying a meal, and many held "elaborate banquets," frequent drinking parties, and purchased libraries for the use of group members.” - Mark Swiencicki in Consuming Brotherhood
