In our last offline meeting we discussed Gender, Communication, and Culture. We saw that the African society has a more conservative perception of gender than the western society. While the African societies see gender strictly from the binary point of view, western societies have a more liberal, non-binary perception of gender which accommodates the genderqueer, or gender ‘in-betweens.’
This is a stray quiz. It is for those who are qualified. Read the story on wakkinews.com entitled Man Makes Designer Unisex Skirts, also watch the video accompanying the story and do a quick analysis of the gendered fashion perspective which John Quarion mentioned in the story. Take a look at the gender-based perspective of that story and give your opinion on acceptance of the proposed dress code in a conservative fixed gender society and a liberal run-off gender-recognized society.
Before the quiz, define the term Gender In-betweens in your own words.
Deadline for this work is Saturday July 20, by 10pm.
