Hello, I'd like to ask you a question. How would you define "gender" in general and what do you see its purpose as?

please see the first question and answer from our F.A.Q.:

the purpose of gender is somewhat complicated to answer. it also depends on who you ask and what context you are asking it in. 

the purpose of gender is in general just another way of categorizing people. western culture people are usually either assigned male or female. in other cultures differs in some way. (i can’t speak to the specifics because i’m american.) this gender is how someone is raised and socialized. 

if you have more specific questions about how gender can relate to other things feel free to send them in.
