After completing the video/reading assignments this week, join the discussion by addressing the following questions, in the order presented and in as much detail as possible. Begin each question on a new line, making certain to number your responses.
Please view the following short videos about the proper use of personal pronouns in relation to Gender Identity:
(6) Why Gender Pronouns Matter – YouTube (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
(6) Gender Identity and Pronouns – What Will You Teach The World? – YouTube (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Questions:
1) Share your impression of the information presented in the two videos and discuss the benefits and/or challenges involved in adopting new language that respects and acknowledges the spectrum of gender identities that exist. Please provide an example that you’ve observed or experienced to support your response.
2) In the video on Microaggressions from Week 4, it was mentioned that asking someone “what they are” in terms of racial identity is considered offensive. However – in the videos presented on gender identity – it was considered offensive if someone doesn’t ask what pronoun they prefer. Discuss your opinion of why racial identity and gender identity appear to elicit such opposite reactions in terms of what’s appropriate.
