Social-constructionists tend to hold that:

1-(X) need not have existed, or need not be at all as it is.

   (X), or (X) as it is at present, is not determined by the nature

   of things; it is not inevitable.

Very often, social-constructionists go further, and urge that:

2- (X) is quite bad as it is.

3- We would be much better off if (X) were done away with,
    or at least radically transformed.
