While reading Janet Mock's memoir, Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More, we have discussed the societal and political ramifications of being transgender in the United States, as well as the ways in which gender, sexuality, race, and class intersect to complicate a transgender individual's identity. This assignment is open-book and open-notes. You may use any part of any assigned course text, but you may not use other resources for this assignment.

Assignment: In a two-paragraph comment to this post, answer this prompt: How does the Gibson et al. chapter “Queer Diversities,” in Finding Out, enhance our understanding of Mock's memoir? How do Mock's memoir and the "Queer Diversities" chapter help us to identify and/or understand the existence of a diversity of gender and sexual identities in our society? What, if anything, might one... or you... or all of us... do with this understanding? Use standard English. Include your name and proper citation. Your comment may respond to previous comments as long as it otherwise fulfills these assignment criteria. Citation includes in-text citation and a list of Works Cited. See the citation link on this blog for instructions.

This assignment counts as one participation grade and is due by 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2015.
