Gender

Gender Instructions  We were told to do an assignment based on our feelings or something that kind of annoyed us as an individual based on our sexuality. Some of the pictures on the uploaded materials are the cards that we did for the assignment. It reflects our thoughts of what type of gender we are and what was something we did not like being in that type of gender. So the instruction following that assignment is to write up a paper based on that assignment, answering these questions:  Question 1-Reflect on the assignment in general. Was it difficult? Easy? Thought provoking? Without indicating which postsecret was yours, did you have a difficult time coming up with a contribution to this community-based art project? Question 2-After viewing the images, what themes emerge for you? What is NOT present that you would have thought to have been included? How does this reflect how we experience the “gender order”? Question 3: After I put the cards up, I received a request to relocate some cards that dealt with sexual assault as they were deemed upsetting displayed in such a very public manner. Rather than relocating the cards, and to maintain their collective integrity, I decided that the only accommodation I was willing to do was to put “Trigger Warning: Sexual Violence” cover sheets on those cards thought upsetting. How do you feel about this accommodation? Does it say something about our culture and how we deal with the everyday nature of gender violence? Question 4: Finally, relate this project to one of my favourite quotes by Clark Kerr: “The goal of the university is to make students safe for ideas, not ideas safe for students. Keeping in mind that I am a male and what I wrote about in one of those cards is about my Gender. Hyundai Case Report: Please answer the following three questions in an effective manner. ////1.
