"Sexuality After Genetics" (video debate)


Jenna Stannis:
A couple of boffins discussing gender. You won't agree with everything they say (that would be boring), but a lot of what they do say is quite interesting.

Sexuality After Genetics: The new science of gender
Conflict rages between those who believe that gender is socially constructed and those who argue that it is biologically determined. But now geneticists propose that we can change our sexual characteristics through lifestyle choices. Is this misguided hype, or the promise of a brave new world?
Panel: Biologist Tim Spector, Darwinist philosopher Helena Cronin and New Humanist's Caspar Melville
Themes: sex biologically binary, behaviour modifying gene function, gender colour preference, sexuality and epigenetics, Lamarck vs. Darwin
