Debra W. Soh is a Canadian science columnist, author, political commentator, and former academic sex researcher. Soh holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in psychology from York University in Toronto. Her dissertation was titled Functional and Structural Neuroimaging of Paraphilic Hypersexuality in Men, and her committee included Keith Schneider of York University and James Cantor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. During her graduate studies, Soh received the Michael Smith Foreign Research Award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and York's Provost Dissertation Scholarship.
Neuroscientist and sexpert Debra Soh is hardly a darling of the right, but here she delivers a matter-of-fact critique of the new gender orthodoxies guiding gender-neutral parenting, dating norms, women’s empowerment strategies, and public policy. Contesting assumptions like “Biological sex is a spectrum,” “Gender is a social construct,” and “Women and men are the same,” Soh comes after some of the central sacred tenets of gender studies and activists.
