The Genesis of Gender, with Dr. Abigail Favale

Dr. Abigail Favale joins Andrew, Matt, and Alastair to investigate the genesis of the gender paradigm.

These days, it seems nobody without a doctorate in biology knows how to tell men apart from women. How did it come to this? And what can be done about it? Andrew, Matt, and Alastair talk to Dr. Abigail Favale, author of The Genesis of Gender, about how the gender paradigm arose, swallowed the concept of sex (like a “giant Pac-Man monster”), and brought into question the very existence of human nature.
