document to the drop box at the course website.
1) Choose a topic and ask research questions. Informed by class discussions, define a topic
that is limited enough to allow you to focus on in a term paper but open enough to allow you
to engage with the larger issues of culture, gender, and capitalism.
2) Conduct a mini-research. Read/listen/watch and take notes on a modest amount of
visual, audio and/or textual content such as advertisements, tv shows, a movie, postcards,
zines, etc. In your paper, clearly describe your data and explain why you picked it. Analyze
your data in the light of your research questions using one or more of the methods we
practiced in class.
3) Analyze. What does your examination of your data tell about your research questions?
Consider how the phenomenon you analyze is shaped by the intersection of gender,
sexuality, race/ethnicity, and class inequalities. Reflect on the significance and relevance of
your findings.

What I wanted to write about:(topic)
Topic: Fairytales
Question 1: How do little girls get affected by the fairytales in their future lives?
Question 2: Is there a difference between children who were told fairytales when they were younger and children who just went straight to bed?
Choose one question from the top or create a question about fairytales compared to the culture that is now!
I chose to write about fairytales and how they affect children at such a young age, especially little girls who thrive to want to be treated like these princesses are. Girls are very easily seen as the weakling and are therefore seen as needing a prince in order to be strong and safe, which in many cases is what many fairytale stories show such as rapunzel, cinderella, snow white and even sleeping beauty. These specific movies show the little influenced girls that men have to constantly be by their sides in order to feel safe and protected when going outside of your safe zone. Most of these movies as well show the women as very nice and considerate and naive as well which in many cases makes the little girls feel as if they have to be like that in order to get a prince and be saved from their little bubble that they have been kept in for so long. The data I want to analyze is “Zipes, Happily Every After,” as well as “Martin, Hetero- Romantic love and Heterosexiness In Children’s G-Rated Films.” They both talk about the topic that I want to discuss in depth and explain why what they show in the movies is wrong because of the heavily influential ability these movies have on the minds of the little kids who watch it, especially the girls who feel like they have to act a certain way in order to feel the same way these princesses do.

Part II – Contemporary understanding of Gender identity You are a young professi

Part II – Contemporary understanding of Gender identity
You are a young professional counselor for LGBT issues, working at Williamsburg NY community mental health center.
Brad and Dana are Dannie’s parents, a 5 years old girl who prefers wearing boy clothes, climbs trees and plays rugby.
She seems happy most of the time, especially when allowed to engage in her favorite activities, but when her parents encourage her to invite other girls for a playdate or when asked to participate in a “girls only” gathering, she becomes sad and asks to cancel the playdate. Her parents are worried that she might have gender identity issues.
As young professionals, what are two possible and different plausible explanations for Dannie’s situation? What would you advise the parents for the near future? What are possible outcomes for Dannie’s future?
In your answer please use at least 3 of the following terms and theories discussed in class:
core gender identity, gender role identity, gender dysphoria, gender rigidity, gender creativity, transgender, gender creativity, non-binar.
Avoid exceeding 450 words in your response (Part II).
Please keep in mind I already composed something and I need help revising and making sure my work is correct.
Refer to the power point posted.
This is what I have so far..
Being a young professional counselor working at Williamsburg NY community mental health center makes it evident to me that Dannie is struggling with gender identity issues in her early childhood. Brad and Dana must analyze the way Dannie is acting and further treat this. Dannie is struggling with gender rigidity and rejecting what is deemed socially appropriate for her gender which is playdates with other children that are the same gender. So much so that it might lead to these explanations.. My advice to Dannie’s parents would be to try to disconnect gender from activities I would share with them that Gender Dysphoria may be a possible disorder Dannie is showing signs of. Gender dysphoria is a subjective disorder of mood experienced by people whose psychological gender is incongruent with their biological sex. In other words, the disorder is a feeling of unease because of gender identity contemplation. In Dannie’s situation, she was very upset once told she is having a playdate with girls. She shows signs of Gender dysphoria gender nonconformity and since Dannie is at such a young age and beginning her treatment with therapeutic work is bound to help her [her] gender now] and see if these attitudes continue or if she begins to feel comfortable with her own gender. This needs to be addressed carefully and will protect Dannie from social exclusion in her childhood. Another explanation for what Dannie is feeling is transgenderism or nonbinary. Transgenderism is identifying with the sex opposite to the one assigned at birth. After analyzing Dannie and if she may be transgender The unchangeable sense of being a boy or girl that solidified by the end of the second year; it is closely tied to the biological base and offers a binary choice of male versus female (Stoller, 1985) The main objective is to help Dannie so she has a healthy childhood that leads to a future where she is confident in her own skin and identity. In conclusion outcomes for Dannie’s future may be…..

Hello, I need a Research Paper (1500-1700 words) which is due June 8th and I’ve explained everything so please read carefully and bid who are able to do so thank you.

Hello, I need a Research Paper (1500-1700 words) which is due June 8th and I’ve explained everything so please read carefully and bid who are able to do so thank you.
Write a paper 1500-1700 words in length that uses both primary and secondary materials, as well as your course readings and lectures. The paper should address issues raised in the class (I will address them soon with you). See the options for papers below.
You have 3 Options for the Research Paper:
A) Pop Culture Paper: Choose some aspect of popular culture: a genre of magazine (women’s, men’s, teen, directed at a particular ethnic group, etc.), films, music videos, song lyrics, advertisements, television shows, social media, comic books, greeting cards, advice columns, TV/ film, or anything that interests you. Develop your analysis in the context of the course materials. For this paper, think of yourself as an analyst of popular culture using the lens of a feminist media scholar. You may include in the introduction how you are re-thinking this aspect of pop culture in light of what you are learning in class (yes, you may use the I voice to do so).
B) Policy Paper: Choose a policy that impacts the politics of sex, love, or romance and analyze 1) when, how, and why this policy emerged, 2) how it impacts society by shaping the everyday lives of people, 3) current debates about or critiques of the policy by academics and/or activists, keeping in mind issues of gender, race, class, age, ability, culture, and nation, and 4) why it is important to understand this policy through the lens of intersectional feminism and social justice.
C) Banned Books Paper: This year, students are encouraged to write about 2 or 3 books from the “Texas Banned Book List” distributed by the professor as one paper option. Discuss the books, authors, and why you think the book was targeted to be banned from Texas libraries. While some books are clearly designed for sex education of young adults, many books fall outside of this category. Using the analytical skills and knowledge you gained in this class how to you access the movement to ban books that discuss sexual, gender, racial, and non-normative identity, histories, and issues in certain states today?
Paper Format and Expectations:
Remember that a good paper introduces the argument, provides evidence to support the argument and comes to a clear conclusion. You will need to describe the object that you are analyzing and discuss the politics of its production, circulation, and consumption or reception. Place this analysis in the socioeconomic, historical, and political context from which it emerges and exists in the world. Use sufficient examples from your sources to support your argument.
Sources should be both secondary, such as academic books and articles (at least 2) and primary, such as newspaper articles, blogs, video or radio interviews, memoirs, social media objects, government reports, statistics, novels, etc. (at least 2). Thus, your bibliography should have at least 4 sources.
Papers should be double-spaced, paginated, and must adhere to a formal academic citation style (ie. Chicago Manual Style, MLA, or APA). Use a cover page that includes your TA name, date, paper title, and contact information. Papers are evaluated according to writing mechanics, content, argumentation and analysis, use of specific examples, style/format, and engagement with course themes (a Rubric will be posted).
