Yes, males tend to be aggressive. That is due to males having more testosterone in their system. Culture also plays a role as males receive more encouragement to act more aggressively.

You can also take a look at the number of offenders in prison. There are perhaps about 3 times as many male offenders, and the types of offenses vary between the genders.

What is the meaning of gender as a social construct?

When we say that gender is a "social construct," we mean that gender is not a result of natural, physical, or biological differences. Those sorts of differences are referred to as "sex" differences: for instance, chromosomal differences, genital differences, and so on. Something like the idea that boys like blue and girls like pink is a gender difference; there is no natural or biological reason for it - it's simply socially constructed, a concept that we all agree with for no other reason than that we agree upon it. Basically, when someone claims that something is a social construct, they are saying that there is no natural or scientific basis for it; it exists only due to human behavior, thought, and interference.
