Exploring Gender: Positive Stories

Written by

 http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01508/gender_1508826c.jpgOver the past week, I have come across a few blog posts from people who have either noticed positive interactions for gender non-conforming children or who have helped to break down the gender binary for children in the classroom to prevent bullying. Children learn so early on how gender affects the world, how it creates a line to follow in every interaction, in every choice. Society dictates from the moment of birth how children should be dressed, what they should play with, how they should react and think, all based on its sex at birth, and children learn within those boundaries. The only way to allow children to escape the binary is to walk ourselves outside the constraints society sets or to educate them about gender outside of the rules reinforced in their everyday lives.

Exploring Gender: The Year in Review

For the last post of 2011, I went back through every Exploring Gender of the past year, trying to find the most important and impactful. In looking through them, I found a trend. As the year progressed, my posts became less personal and more geared toward events and their impact on the community at large. Anecdotes will always be a part of these articles, but if you wish to hear more personal stories, please tell me in the comments or message me on the site. I am always willing to answer any questions, tell my stories, or hear suggestions for future articles.

Gender and Sex Are Not Interchangeable Terms

Written by Cathy White

Dear Sappho,

How many sexes or genders are there anyway, and how are they defined? I suspect there are at least 4 and possibly 8. It seems like we not living in a black and white dualistic world any more that is limited to just males & females. There are many shades of grey that make the world seem much more complicated.

Exploring Gender: The National Student Genderblind Campaign

Written by

http://www.genderblind.org/oldsite/gblogo.jpgWhile researching today, I found a campaign working toward creating an equal environment for all genders at colleges and universities, The National Student Genderblind Campaign (NSGC). According to their mission statement, they question the way society has dictated that women should room with women and men with men. Why can’t students live with whomever they are at ease?
