Gender/Gender Identity/Sexual Orientation/Social Role


In our process of rejecting anything that looks different, we end up categorizing different kind of people under the same rejected group without even trying to get a clearer idea about the differences among them, or the reason they end up different than what we percieve to be the norm in our society.

One has to be either man or woman. A man should be masculine. A woman should be feminine. A sexual union should happen between a masculine man with a feminine woman. This is the social norm we are used to see in our daily life. We fail to acknowledge that masculinity and femininity is relative. There is a spectrum of degrees of masculinity as well as femininity where it gets us confused.

There are some sex related terms that we have to be aware of in order differenciate:
1. Gender: Male, Female, both
2. Gender Identity: Man, Woman, Transexual
3. Sexual Orientation: Hetreosexual, Bi-sexual, Homosexual
4. Social Role: Masculine, Feminine, in between

The normal scenario would be to have a Male who identifies himself as a Man, being hetreosexual and masculine. Or A female who identifies herself as a woman, being hetreosexual and faminine.

But it isn’t always like this. In life all variations for combining the 4 factors above exists. There are also a lot of variations under each category as of Gender for example. It isn’t just a distinct male, female, both. One can find a range of how much a male is male or female is female according to their sexual organs.

For instance we can find a male failing to acknowledge his identity where he thinks himself to be a woman which makes him a transexual while he is still attracted to women. As of wanting to change his sex to be a lesbian woman.

Some would have the 3 norms while fail to meet one. Like being a male, masculine, man identity, but homosexual, or male, feminine, man identity and hetreosexual.

All of the combinations exist in life. We just happen to accept the only 2 extremes while rejecting all of the other people.

    You are right, people in general like to label others. If they see a feminine Hetrosexual (Straight) they think he is gay and if they say a masculine Homosexual they assume he is straight. Ofcourse in any society we have Male and Fenale Hetrosexual, Homosexuals, Transexuals, people who are in between and people who are sexualy confused persons.I think we need to accpet people the way they are.

  2. I think that the problem in our society that people don’t know, they don’t read, they don’t try to understand the others. When they sense a problem, they either hide it, or ignore it all along assuming it doesn’t exist. Well said, we need to accept people as they are cause no one is perfect. (I m no one😛 – kidding! lol)

    hey observer , am back to my fav. blog🙂 and btw you couldn’t be more right , i mean i don’t know why is that humans like to judge other humans , and even calling them names sometimes just because they’re not the same , and it’s not only about sextual orentation, it’s a shame that we can’t just accept each other for the was they think and behave , and not the way they look or feel .
