Social Construction Theory
Social construction theory in the field of sexuality proposed an extremely
outrageous idea. Suggested that one of the last remaining outposts of the

and history rather than the invariant result of the body, language, biology or an
innate sex drive.
Social construction opposed to essentialist.
