"How were you gendered?"

Gender is something that gives an identity to the person in terms of male or female . I think my gender was decided at the time of conception only . Gender is not only decided by the genital , but it is how one identifies himself i.e. a male or a female . I think other than my genital am gendered by my masculinity . My physical appearance , my features like broad shoulders , facial hairs , voice and etc are also the points that i considered responsible for my gender . Even things like society , family and factors that are in place before birth also contribute to my gender . Defining gender is not like the once and done process of identifying the structure of a water molecule .

  1. I agree with the point that gender or sex is more than just one's genitalia. It is defined by many other factors which we set for ourselves and in ways that others define us.
