Communication And Gender Studies! Outdoor Quiz

I welcome you to the second semester but I doubt whether it is going to be less hectic than the first. I thought I should add that immediately to put our correspondence from now on a better perspective.

The course is entitled “Communication and Gender Studies.” I must confess that it is an exciting course which focuses a specialized communication area that is always exciting to foray into. Here we look at gender from the perspective of what we are and what we say, including a combination of both. The course dwells solely on the fusion between gender and communication.

I expect that by now you would have read the COURSE COMPACT and browsed through the list of important links in the reference section which is by no means exhaustive.

Your first quiz is to read the course compact and the links provided, including other materials you can get, with a view to understanding the basic concepts of gender, sex and sexuality. Then …

1. Define gender in pidgin English (One paragraph).

2. Differentiate between gender and sex in pidgin English (Not less than two paragraphs).

Note: One-sentence paragraph will not be accepted.

In this era where reaching the uneducated requires identifying with them in the language they understand, it becomes pertinent for us to begin to accommodate people-oriented language patterns even in classroom activities. This is essential in order not to be taken aback if told to present a seminar on Gender Issues to rural audience largely comprising the uneducated.

Deadline for this quiz is 10pm today (Tuesday, July 3).

I will use this to take a roll call of candidates officially part of the new class that I’ll be working with.

    1. Gender
    Dis na talk about how society tek see life of human being, man and woman as it concern wetin dem fit do, dress dem fit wear, even job dem fit do or position dem fit occupy. Like now for our country, many people especially our men no gree say woman fit be President; say fit drive commercial moto. Even wen dem see woman dokito or Engineer, e no dey too clear dem fo eye. For church, who be woman to be Fada, pastor or even to com preach. For tradition sef, na dia e woss. Woman no fit be King, em no fit comot vileg square talk or inherit property.
    2. Difrens wey dey for ‘Gender’ and ‘Sex’
    Dis eye wey society tek see gender difrent wen e konsan wetin oyibo kol “sex of a human being”. For sex mata, wetin society or even too much akada people de consider na how God take create person sake of the kine body dem givam. Fr man body, dem go look for em chest weda e carry breast. Then, dem go check em private area weda na man private part abi na woman own e get. Some people dey even carry in-between. Dis na people dem dey kol ‘intersex’
    For dis mata, some country like Germany and Finland or even for some big big akad people, diaris no difrense for the two, gender and sex, all na the same. Even some people wey say dem be Transgender, no gree say dem be man or woman. Some of dem dey tek dia mouth tell you the one dem wan be. E no mata weda dem carry man or woman body.
