For this post, we have explored how socialization affects males and females and how something like gender can be so taken-for-granted. In our culture there is a polarization of what it means to be female and male and heterosexual and lesbian or gay. Our culture pushes individuals to opposite ends of a spectrum. For this post, use examples from your own experience to show how our society socializes men and women into narrow boxes. Explain how masculinity and femininity are a social construction. How do the agents of socialization play a role in your experiences? To demonstrate literacy, feel free to comment on the myriad sources we looked at for femininity (the research and videoes on my blog) and the movies Killing Us Softly4, Tough Guise2, the Adolescent Homophobia...reading from Kimmel and Mahler about masculinity or the myriad other sources on my blog posts over the last 2 weeks.
