Description

International sex researcher, neuroscientist, and columnist Debra Soh debunks popular gender myths in this research-based, scientific examination of the many facets of gender identity.

Is our gender something we’re born with, or are we conditioned by society? In The End of Gender, neuroscientist and sexologist Dr. Debra Soh uses a research-based approach to address this hot-button topic, unmasking popular misconceptions about the nature vs. nurture debate and exploring what it means to be a woman or a man in today’s society.

Both scientific and objective, and drawing on original research and carefully conducted interviews, Soh tackles a wide range of issues, such as gender-neutral parenting, gender dysphoric children, and the neuroscience of being transgender. She debates today’s accepted notion that gender is a social construct and a spectrum, and challenges the idea that there is no difference between how male and female brains operate.

The End of Gender is a conversation-starting work that will challenge what you thought you knew about gender, identity, and everything in between. Timely, informative, and provocative, it will arm you with the facts you need to come to your own conclusions about gender identity and its place in the world today.

    In an era of misinformation about gender and where activism has encroached on science, this book takes a nuanced approach to explaining all sides regarding current sociopolitical issues regarding gender and presents the science in an accurate manner that is currently suppressed by those for whom the science doesn’t agree with. I would highly highly recommend reading this book with an open mind. Dr. Soh is a very level-headed person who has fantastic ideas about how the fight for equality should embrace science rather than deny it.

    But I had to purchase it after listening to the author on Joe Rogan. To the author: history remembers people like you, it doesn’t remember historical activists. Keep it up!
