What do you think about sexual identity in the news?

Reflect on what you learned about sexual identity from the textbook and the Reuters article.

Now, answer the following question on the journal page:

  • In your textbook, educator Mary Calderone is quoted as saying, “Sex is what you do; sexuality is who you are.” Based on the biology, psychology, culture, and ethics discussed in the textbook, write about who you are sexually and what makes you that way.

Reflection: In 3 – 5 sentences, reflect on your reading by answering the following:

  • How do you feel about the accommodations for transgender people mentioned in the article?
  • How do you think it feels to be someone who doesn’t fit neatly into either male or female categories?
  • What do you think society can do to help keep transgender people safe while also protecting others who are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with these policies?
