Exploring Gender: Traveling and Security

Written by

I recently returned from a trip to Europe, a graduation present from my family. Prior to the trip I was a bit wary as to how I would be received by transportation security because I could not change my legal name on my passport in the time between graduation and leaving for Europe, which was only a couple of weeks. I thought it would be difficult to get through airport security presenting as I do with the name Mary Catherine. There is no room for gender ambiguity in that name.

Exploring Gender: A Genderless Child

It has become one of the biggest gender stories of the year. Is this a valid approach to raising a child? Is it even possible? Here’s my take.

Exploring Gender : The Social Construction of Gender

Written by

One of the main questions about gender is: Is gender socially constructed? I believe a lot of the factors going into gender are socially constructed, but not all. When we discuss being genderqueer here, that is something outside of societal norms, and so is something inherent to the individual, not to how that individual has experienced gendering throughout his or her life.

Exploring Gender : Transitioning at Work

Written by

I graduate on Sunday. It is strange to think that such a large part of my life is about to be over. I have spent 18 of the 22 years of my life in school. I just don’t even know how to think about it. I don’t even think it will seem real to me until I am just working. It will be so nice not to have to juggle work, school, and all of my other obligations, but learning, reading, writing—I don’t even know what I will do without them. The question now, though, becomes: how do I go about transitioning now that I am not being constrained by the guidelines of my college?
