Mary Calderone

Reflect on what you learned about sexual identity from the textbook and the Reuters article.

Now, answer the following question on the journal page:

  • In your textbook, educator Mary Calderone is quoted as saying, “Sex is what you do; sexuality is who you are.” Based on the biology, psychology, culture, and ethics discussed in the textbook, write about who you are sexually and what makes you that way.

Reflection: In 3 – 5 sentences, reflect on your reading by answering the following:

  • How do you feel about the accommodations for transgender people mentioned in the article?
  • How do you think it feels to be someone who doesn’t fit neatly into either male or female categories?
  • What do you think society can do to help keep transgender people safe while also protecting others who are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with these policies?
