Genders is not a social construct, it's biological. In fact, many studies shows that the brain looks different in males and females. And science also has proven that chromosomes does determine someone genders. And that fender and sex are retaled to each other. In conclusion: No, gender is not a social construct.

Biological Sex Vs. Gender
The distinction between sex and gender can be found in their definitions:
- Sex: "The structural and functional characteristics of a person or organism that allow assignment as either male or female; sex is determined by chromosomes, hormones and external and internal genitalia (gonads)." 
- Gender: "refers to the socially constructed characteristics of women and men – such as norms, roles and relationships of and between groups of women and men. It varies from society to society and can be changed" 
Con conflates these terms. Whilst it is true that "sex" is not a social construct, the same cannot be said for "gender"; social factors are what makes these two notions distinct.
== Rebuttals ==
Quite simply, Con's argument highlights a "biological difference" between males and females. As aforementioned, biological determinations and characteristics pertain more accurately to "sex", not "gender". Therefore, Con's argument ought to be rejected.
