When most people think of gender identity, they are really thinking
about biological sex. Actually, sex and gender are very different things. When you describe your sex, what you are really describing is your "plumbing," so to speak.

Transgender clownfish and lesbian geckos teach children a lesson in gender diversity

Transgender clownfish and lesbian geckos teach children a lesson in gender diversity | Gender Roles & Identity | Scoop.it

Students at Redwood Heights Elementary School in Oakland, California have learned a valuable lesson in gender diversity after Joel Baum, director of education and training for Gender Spectrum, introduced lessons on transgender clownish and single-sex geckos. The lessons were presented on behalf of a grant from the California Teacher’s Union and presented by the anti-bullying group, Gender Spectrum. The children were first asked what a “girl toy” or “boy toy” looked like. As students provided answers like a “pink toy” for girls, Baum told children that boys can like the color pink as well. For older children, Baum focused on animal species that hold unconventional roles, like a sea horse that tends after its offspring, or transgender clownfish and single-sex geckos that demonstrate gender-opposite qualities. Children were given flash cards with various traits from animal species that transcend into human qualities, like the all-girl geckos or clownfish who demonstrated transgender qualities. Baum also taught children that someone can be born with “male parts” but may like being a girl better. “Gender identity is one’s own sense of themselves. Do they know themselves to be a girl? Do they know themselves to be a boy? Do they know themselves to be a combination?” Baum said. “Gender identity is a spectrum where people can be girls, feel like girls, they feel like boys, they feel like both, or they can feel like neither.”

Everyone passes through different phases in his lifetime, but something which men do not experience is the pregnancy. It is the wonderful period of a woman’s life and that is the situation where we can see gender roles in more distinct forms. Every society has different gender roles, so gender roles in America are also different from other societies. Let talk about the gender role is detail.

Great episode. Should be required viewing for those who think that that being transgender is a choice, or that it is something caused by parents. Or that supportive parents are practicing "child abuse" by allowing transgender behavior.
