Our Gender Issue Prompted Many Comments. Here We Respond

Our Gender Issue Prompted Many Comments. Here We Respond:

“We recently published our special issue on what we’re calling the ‘Gender Revolution.’ Humanity’s understandings of gender—both scientific and social—are shifting, and we wanted to explore and explain them.

We knew people would have thoughts and questions about how we chose to cover a concept so in flux. We have received thousands of emails, letters, and comments on social media that span the range of excited, horrified, concerned, and grateful. We’ve responded to the most common ones here—and in some cases, we’ve explained clarifications or corrections we’ve made to our digital editions. We’ll continue to update this page as the discussion continues.”
