Deborah Tannen is a researcher on the social interactions between people. In her essays “Sex, Lies, and Conversations” and “Can’t We Talk?” Tannen addresses the conversational habits of men and women to analyze their interactions, looking for where problems in relationships begin.

In Deborah Tannen’s “Sex, Lies, and Conversation,” Tannen uses personal stories and scientific research to support her claim that conversational misunderstandings between men and women stem from how each gender views conversation. Tannen states that because men and women interact in groups primarily composed of their respective genders during childhood, misunderstandings between the genders are a result of conversational differences as children (Tannen 424).

In society, people are constantly harassed, bullied, and killed due to their sexual orientation and gender identity. So, how can this infliction against human rights be availed? To make McHenry County College a more accepting place for people who identify as LGTBQA, it is important that we educate both the faculty and the students. First, by having guest speakers talk about the issues of transphobia, homophobia, and the struggles that correspond with identifying as queer, this allows for people to not only learn about LGBTQA issues, but also feel comfortable to ask questions that they may not feel comfortable asking at home. In addition, it is also important that we allow transgender students to use locker rooms and bathrooms that they identify with, or have a separate facility that trans students can use the washroom or change in so acts of violence can be avoided.
Authors always have an impact on readers, whether they are discussing fun topics, or more serious ones, like social inequality or persecution.For example, author J.k. Rowling discussed the impacts of social inequality, while pediatricians Gwenn Schurgin O'Keeffe, and Kathleen Clark-Pearson and author S.E. Hilton discussed the impacts of persecution from bullying.

Sexual orientation is defined by our textbook as the “classification of individuals as heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual based on emotional, cognitive, and sexual attractions as well as their self-identity and lifestyle” (McCammon, 2007). I chose sexual orientation because it has become a hot topic of discussion in today’s society, and I feel for as much discussion as there is about it, not much information is known.

Between the textbook, website, and article, I feel as though I covered all bases surrounding sexual orientation, from general overviews of theories to more specific biological sex-related orientation.
