Gender Identity.

It's so weird that all these things we have been talking about in class keep popping up on television shows I have been watching. Even if you don't like Oprah, her show today exemplified and explained the idea of gender identity and how people can feel trapped in the wrong gender/body. This show really opened my eyes to the concept of gender identity.

  1. not that i agree with it or anything, but they believe who people are the wrong "gender" have a mental disorder. i can't remember the actual name of the disorder but it was some very interesting show on the discovery health channel a year or two back

  2. Krysten and Jeff, If you are interested in this topic, you should read: She's not there: A life in Two Genders, by J. F. Boylan--this was a life changing read (and very enjoyable).
