Sorry I missed this! Reference is: Zevallos, Z. On the topic of gender identity, im very curious as to how experiences of sexual trauma affect the development of gender identity. Are there any studies that have been done on a possible link between sexual trauma and rejection of femininity? Thanks a ton! Trigger warning: rape. While there a variety of responses to the trauma of sexual violence, the connections made here are highly problematic. A butch identity is an expression of femininity, not a rejection of femininity. Your friend may understand her personal experience in the way you describe but there is no widespread correlation between survivors of sexual violence and butch identities.
Sociology of Gender
Survivors adopt various strategies for healing and making sense of their personal journeys. Survivors also have various gender and sexual identities; there is no one pathway for development. While many survivors will manage their trauma in diverse ways at different points in their lives it is not correct to presume that survivors reject femininity and sexuality.
Similarly, butch identities are a gender expression and they do not signify a rejection of sexuality. Sexuality and gender are different. Hi, I would like to reference correctly!
Did you last work on the page in ? Thank you!
To cite this article: Zevallos, Z. Thank you for writing this. Thanks for your lovely comment. Good luck with these discussions! I am using this article for my paper in sociology! Awesome information by the way. Do you have a date for when you polished this piece? Thank you for everything!! Thanks for your comment. Okay, so I liked you article it was okay.
That being said I feel as though you should have pulled much more from biological anthropology, and established neuroscience. While neuroscience has somewhat avoided the topic that I am going to mention right now and that is, there are way too many different labels. GLBT covers it all, it really does. I am going to tell a really simple story. Once upon a time people lived in groups did whatever they wanted and had sex with everyone like all of the time. No one really cared about gender roles or this and that etc.
Then people started practicing agriculture and property became and issue, and the amount of children within a family became an issue, and subsequently the ownership of female sexuality became an issue. From there it is all really basic history. The moral of that story is one that is often recited.
Gender is socially constructed. Its not a gradient its not a spectrum, it is completely made up entirely. And that there is no such thing as an Asexual male every male will get a boner in their sleep no matter what, every time, guarantee.

Instead of trying to create additional layers of specificity to try and fit all of the nuance of each individual as this process can continue ad infinitum the most effective approach is to realize that everybody defines themselves within gender as we know it today meaning that they pick and choose within the modern discourse which particular label to ascribe to themselves in different situations. This is not unique to gender identity but is a plague to the entire realm of the social sciences and psychology.
More research needs to be done by neurologists before we begin classifying people as this or that, as creating a label for a person will cause them to direct their behavior within those limited constraints. Human beings evolved to embrace a wide variety of sexual acts to encompass the community and build relationships.
Definitions like this are very modern and creating too many labels is just unscientific nonsense. The fact of the matter is that while the grouping is useful for smaller scale analysis of particular subjects, when creating a broad conversation you have to stick with the all encompassing labels Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender covers pretty much everything some may make a case for pansexual but that is a bit dismissive of transgender people as it implies that they are not really their identified gender or their physiological sex.
With this refinement of labels it is easy to make a constitutional case, without the need for an amendment for perfect equality for the GLBT community. All it needs is a few good court cases where Sex a protected category is used as a defense for protection. For example, if someone is trying to discriminate against a gay man, that would fall under the sex category because they are discriminating him because he likes to have sex with men, all else being the same if he were a woman this would not be an issue.
That argument is the most solid, but it falls apart if we recognize anything beyond GLBT under the legal framework and focus on this such as gender identity and gender fluidity. Protection under the law should be priority 1 compared to nuanced identity, that kind of talk is really for college dorm rooms rather than on a broad political scale, as it focuses on intangible philosophy not particularly medically relevant.
We have to remember that gender is much less biological than sexual orientation and it relies incredibly heavily on social influences. Thus trying to direct labels at people based on this, particularly children, and minimalizing the negative toll of things such as hormone therapy and sex change operations they are quite taxing and associated with many health problems on the long term really just creates more of a problem than anything else.
You have your understandings of neuroscience, biology and sociology all mixed up, as with your narrow understanding of gender and sexuality. Both gender and sexuality are social constructs — that means that categories, behaviours, identities and social expressions of both gender and sexuality have varied across time, place and culture. As for your confused take on the law — Australian, American and other nation states recognise it is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of gender AND sexuality and other protected characteristics.
Identities give meaning to individuals as they tie us to communities; they may help us express our personal values; and identities also tie us to other social experiences. Richard Jenkins shows that not all identities matter at the same time to everyone — but when social identities do matter such as during times of conflict, or when people are denied rights, or when people are excluded or victimised — then identities really matter. If individuals were more interested in upholding the rights of sexual and gender minorities, rather than imposing their value judgements and ill-informed opinions on biology and morality, then children would not have to suffer with their gender and sexual identities.
I never said that the gender labels are confusing children. I am simply saying from a legal standpoint its easier to protect under the basis of sex than gender identity, and that is a good reason to get rid of the labels. WIth that said, I the main point of my arguement was not one about sexuality, as sexuality and gender identity are completely different. One being immutable, and the other, as fars as we are aware being highly mutable untill about halfway through puberty.
In some ways Identities can tie you to a community, but in other ways it can isolate you from other communities.

The idea of someone being Genderqueer is really just a more overt aknowledgement of the fact that they do not subscribe to the traditional boundaries of gender norms. It is essentialy Agender. Much like being an atheist means not conforming to any religious norm. People in this category define themselves rahter than the gender they fit into. They simply eliminate one form of self stereotyping that everyone else does.
