Reflect on your childhood and answer the following questions in a two to three-page reflection: (I am a Black woman raised in the South) How were you taught to “do” gender? (I identify as a girl, and I was taught to follow what is considered all things a girl should and should not do) What is an example of “gender-normative” behavior or activity that you engaged in as a child? What is an example in which you transgressed (did not behave according to) gender norms? Did your parents reinforce traditional gender expectations for you? For example, were there activities or behaviors they encouraged you to take on (or prevented you from taking on) based on your sex? If you had siblings of the opposite sex (or close friends/family members), were they treated differently? (I was an only child) How or how not? Please be sure that you use specific examples from your childhood to answer the questions and illustrate the concepts. You should integrate concepts from the week’s readings into your journal reflection; however, the point of this assignment is to allow you a forum to explore your own ideas rather than simply repeating what you have learned. You will be graded on whether you gave evidence that you understand the sociological concepts that you have learned this week and that you thought about the material for yourself.
