Gender: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts
September 12, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
September 12, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
What’s the big deal about gender? In this conversation, we will explore biological sex, gender identity, and gender expression to better understand how these concepts impact your life and the lives of others. We will use the following definitions:
Biological Sex- refers to the biological anatomy of an individual’s reproductive system, and secondary sex
characteristics (male, female, intersex, etc.)
Gender Identity- an individual’s concept/identity of themselves (man, woman, trans, gender non conforming,
Gender Expression- how individuals present themselves (masculine, feminine, androgynous, etc.)
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- What roles have you learned about gender from parents, school, peers, media, faith? Which do you hold true? And which do you break?
- What do gender and biological sex mean to you? Are they interchangeable, do they conflict with each other?
- What do masculinity and femininity mean to you? How do you express masculinity and femininity?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
