Trans-gender – “(This is) an umbrella term, like trans for individuals who blur the lines of traditional gender expression…. (Trans-genders) may or may not choose to change physical characteristics of their bodies or legally change their sex” (Meyer, 2010). It is a term for a person who has changed his/her original sexuality, but did not undergo medical treatments or
There is a flaw in it that the Dear Colleague Letter catches. The Title IX law never says “gender,” but does use “sex.” The difference between the two is that sex refers to the biological differences, chromosomes, and sex organs. To be more specific, it means male or female. Meanwhile, gender means the characteristics society notices, masculine or feminine. Certainly, it could be argued that since other groups of people (bisexual and gay's) go into the bathrooms, then transgenders should be permitted, also.
Transgender is a term that is used to categorize a group of people who identify as the opposite gender than they were born as. These people are just normal people who believe that they were born into the wrong sex. Linda Thompson wrote, “Being transgender, like being gay, tall, short, white, black, male, or female, is another part of the human condition that make each individual unique, and something over which we have no control. We are who we are in the deepest recesses of our minds, hearts and identities. So, if we can't choose what we are why do we discriminate against transgender people?
Question: Why does discrimination happen? My answer: To me discrimination is a really big word. To me discrimination means to not include someone in something because of how they are, their raise, their skin colour, their sex and their age is. Which in my opinion isn’t really something right to do against people because they aren’t a certain type of person which society calls “perfect.” One of the biggest questions that people ask while reading/talking about discrimination is well why does it happen? My answer to that would be that because some people in our society believe that just because you aren’t a certain raise, age, sex, and skin colour that they have the full right to tell you what you can do and can't do.
Armando Chavarin English 100 Professor Fagundes 08/30/2017 Gender Equality The two articles “ 6 Common Arguments Against Feminism & Every Way You Can Shut Them Down” and “Girl power has lifted up women but failed men” are two very different articles. Even though they both discuss the expulsion of gender equality, their arguments vary from one another and present a lot better than the other one. For example, “Girl power has lifted up women but failed men” confuses the reader to what they are arguing about. The writer goes from one topic to the other and this confuses the reader. And the article “6 Common Arguments Against Feminism & Every Way You Can Shut Them Down” is more well organized, the writing is clear with what it's arguing
In society, it is automatically assumed that people want justice, equality and stride for freedom. Despite that, when a group of people are put together; they turn into a stack of dominos. Although they do not realize it, when someone of higher social class creates a certain stigma against a person or group, the rest will eventually follow through despite personally knowing them. It is the act of bias and influence that hinder the sight of many. "Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is deep-seated evil within our society" a quote from Judith Light.
It implies that each individual was created equal, no matter what race or gender the individual is. But this is highly contradicted because despite the inalienable rights each individual is born wit, they are not allowed to pursue them especially if the individual is a woman. According to society and their views, a woman is useless when it comes to other daily activities that doesn't involve work. It clearly states what women cannot due because of their gender and it also states the rights that they are deprived from expressing, which clearly shows the majority, just because they are a
Yes, they have the same rights, but they shouldn’t get to take advantage of all their rights. According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, “You have the right not to be bullied or harassed because you are transgender or gender non-conforming.” With that being said, transgenders can’t take advantage of this right and become a bully or
Throughout history, society has shaped the lives of individuals by assigning individuals a specific way to be a part of society while deviation is most likely viewed as unacceptable and will likely be censured. Betty Friedan in chapter 1 of her novel “The Feminine Mystique” describes society’s assigned role for females and how women sacrificed their desires to fulfil the role assigned by society. E.J Graff in his essay “The M/F Boxes” describes how transgender and intersex individuals suffered humiliation and alienation because they did not meet society’s expectation of what a man or a woman is. Stephen Hinshaw in an excerpt from “What is the Triple Bind?” brings to attention the contemporary issue females are facing as they are expected to
The transgender are denied the right to health care facilitates because of their gender ambiguity. They are excluded in the health care policies and insurances.
