A man is a human being of the male sex, while a woman is that person of the female sex. Men produce the hormone testosterone and women, estrogens, this causes the development of different characteristics. The differences between men and women can be appreciated in biological, physical, psychological, cultural, and social terms.
They are those of the male sex, they are also known as males. It is used as a plural term to refer to the entire human race and to speak of an adult person.
Men produce testosterone, a hormone that causes more body and facial hair, wider shoulders and thorax, a larger Adam’s apple, and easier to build muscles.
Men determine the sex of the baby through the chromosome that carries the sperm, this can be X or Y.
The primary sexual organs of men are external, while those of women are located inside their bodies.
The predominance of men in society has led to machismo, a behavior that is not only negative for women, but also for the man himself, closing workspaces for one or the other, but which, over time, have been conquered Almost entirely.
Machismo maintains in force certain false stereotypes that attribute to men characteristics such as greater rationality, aggressiveness, and competitiveness, characteristics that a woman can also present, or that a man may lack, these situations generate conflict in societies that do not want to discard these old paradigms.
Women are female persons. This term is used to refer to adults. Various hormones are produced in women, but it is estrogens that define characteristics such as a narrow waist, developed breasts, less body and facial hair, a wide pelvis, wide hips, and a normally higher voice.
The woman is in charge of most of the reproductive work, she is the one who becomes pregnant, gives birth, and breastfeeds the baby. Contraceptive methods have given women and their partners the ability to plan children and allow women to exercise their sexuality freely.
The paradigm that considers women as the weaker sex has been overthrown in most of the developed and developing countries of the world.
