Reconceptualizing Gender (from the Stream of Life)

Daniele Moyal-Sharrock, Constantine Sandis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we consider a range of trans-inclusive approaches to gender concepts and how they relate to the world, from family resemblance theories to conceptual engineering. In so doing, we shall also examine several concepts that are analogous to gender and other controversial and not-so-controversial concepts, such as ‘vegan cheese’ and ‘adoptive parents’. Having assessed their merits and demerits, we argue that our gender concepts are not fixed in stone but, rather, evolve alongside human practices and behaviour.
