Assignment: Intersection of Sexuality, Gender, and Culture

Most societies explicitly tie gender to sexuality. Think about the acceptance of boys “sowing their wild oats,” while girls engaging in the same behavior are “slut-shamed.” Gender may influence sexuality or sexual experience due to a culture’s socialization or enforcement of gender roles and expectations. Within the modern Western world, same-sex sexual orientation was perceived as deviant because it deviated from prescribed gender behavior of what it means to be a “man” (e.g., men have sex with women).

The experience of gender and sexuality becomes more complex when working with transgender and gender nonconforming clients. Individuals who are transgender or gender non-conforming may identify as heterosexual or as a sexual minority. Whether one is cis-gender (identifying with the sex assigned at birth) or transgender/gender nonconforming, gender will affect your sexual experience as you navigate gender performance with your sexual partners based society’s assumptions of your sexuality.

In the Assignment this week, you analyze the intersection of sexuality, gender, and culture.
