Gender & Sexuality for Beginners

by For Beginners Author, Jaimee Garbacik Author and Jeffrey Lewis Author

Concepts of gender & sexuality have changed drastically. As people feel more comfortable and safe expressing who they truly are to the world, many new experiences, and realities are coming to light. Gender and Sexuality For Beginners uncovers the various understandings of gender roles/sexual orientation present within American society, focusing on how these understandings have changed—and how neither is as objective as many believe. Gains and strides have been made for diverse communities, but significant gaps remain between reality and what the government enforces. This book takes a closer look at the media outlets and institutions that narrowly define gender roles and sexuality in our culture, and the history and construction of these concepts/roles.
