Whats wrong with sciences
Reaching conclusions really quick
Research concludes to usually what you want to find.
Govt. fund groups that want to focus on the differences between humans
Anne about FIVE SEXES
- She says: the dichotomy between male and females don’t really exist …
just a fine blurred line…instead there are five sexes
Gender: performed role, - social conventions and ideas within the society
about masculinity and feminity
Sex: biological designaton and chromosomes
Anne says we are just mere points between the spectrum of Male & female
There are men who have high voices … and women had facial hair
Michelle Fukoh – hermapphrodites is not a diseased state … there is some
level of intersexuality.
We try to categorized to two separate categories.
Whereas (Jemy Lee Curtis) – runway models have XY chromosomes
If Sex can be problematized and then so can be gender
Sex isn’t the ultimate factor to distinguish and lead to Gender performitivity
Just because a male is biological a 100% male doesn’t mean he cant take
interest in what may seems very feminine.

Online writing – take advantage
more information about it is posted online
Purpose is to reflect on the authors analytical positions and your thoughts on
Use five Ws and introduce the article
Review the article – authors thesis, supporting evidence/data…what he/she
makes of that and what I think of it
Only 2 pages
The article you can use is … you can use any article up until today …course
kit or reader ..(except for biological …reader)
Opinions needed to resisted and not mentioned in the paper
suspend judgment and think about the problematic and situation …
What are the articles implications according to your understanding …? ..
she states … she further asserts that
Your thesis : its your reflection on their thesis.
A thesis requires: analysis …it makes a claim and offers a point of some
Thesis is built of a claim that is supported by data or evidence but a warrant
or reason or analysis .. that is used to support the claim…
for the evidence to make any sense … we have to analyze it
Data/Claim and Warrant(reason) – all should be part of the thesis
Weak thesis :
= does not make a claim
= a statement of fact
= reason/ analysis (attempting to normalize jeans)

Biology can never account for our differences and they fail to understand
that our biological bodies are subject to social construct
There is a great variance found within biological markers makes it
difficult to fit into ‘Binary Classification’ for male and female
questions the biological and physical markers that are used: Anne argues
that we need to look at culture and what we make of male and female
bodies but also any bodies that is transverse
Biological body being considered (extreme) we are blank slates and
that it is true – that social practices and culture meaning that we acquire
The sex body is only relevant into our cultures and how they give
meaning to the body.
Ex: social construction of menustration … its blue and woman are able to
continue living their life.
