their scientific vocabulary. In their stead, investigators should substitute defined terms that more specifically identify the particular observable qualities or theoretical constructs to which they are referring. This approach would not only minimize confusions about meanings but would also make more obvious the presumptions underlying gender theories. Only when these presumptions are recognized and subjected to objective scrutiny will it become possible to make theoretical progress.
