do you think that gender is a social construct?

A+ A-

We have always been brought up to believe that girls like pink and boys like blue and there is nothing in-between. For example, when you go into a toy shop, there is a girl section and a boy section and thats it. its always been acceptable in society for girls to wear dresses but its not acceptable for boys, however there is nothing in our biology that states that boys will be negatively affected if they choose to wear dresses. So this has left me too wonder whether it was society that raised us to identify as a gender?

what are your thoughts?
