All are welcome to a community dialogue about sex and gender this Thursday, May 23 at 7 at the Ginger Press Bookshop and Cafe.

Much has been written in recent years regarding the differences between sex and gender. The World Health Organization recognizes sex as a biological category and gender as a social category, or construction. Different people and groups argue for and against this distinction. In Britain and elsewhere, controversy has erupted as legislation and policy to protect the rights of the LGBTQ+ community was seen by some as discriminatory against sex, in particular women. In a Canadian example, the Vancouver Rape Relief & Women’s Shelter had its education grant cut by the city for ‘offering some of the core services only to women born female.’

How are we to negotiate this as a community? What are we to do in the wake of shifting cultural norms, and roles? How does online discussion affect our attitudes towards sex & gender? And, are sex and gender inherently political?

Community Dialogue events aim at rational discourse regarding a wide arrange of topics with the purpose of communicating different points of view in a forum of reciprocal exchange. They are facilitated by Josh Richardson.

Josh Richardson is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
