This article argues that there is a significant metaphysical difference between men and women that is not reducible either to biology or to social constructs. In view of that difference, the author criticizes the Massachusetts decision giving constitutional status to same sex marriage, but also criticizes the more common argument against such marriage, because it relies too much on biology, too little on metaphysics.
