Gender vs Sex

Gender vs Sex

SubmissiveFeminist SubmissiveFeminist
I'm a college junior, minoring in women, gender, and sexuality studies. I'm also a psychology major, which means I'm constantly filling out surveys for research studies. The thing this really pisses me off about them all is the question on sex/gender. Nine out of ten surveys for psychological studies will say, "What is your gender?" With a check box for male and female.

Do you understand the difference between sex and gender? Do you correct people who use the terms incorrectly?

To me, it depends on the context. If we are having a discussion on gender and such, they yeah, I will correct them. I think, in other conversations, it is a little confrontational.
