Robinson, Matthew P (2000). Unspoken Assumptions: A Cross-Cultural Examination of Sexual Abiguity. Lambda Alpha Journal, 30, 28-41. PDF Download. This paper focuses on the issue of "sexually ambiguous" individuals - that is, those who exhibit traits that are neither exclusively female nor male - and the problems associated with their existence within a sexually dimorphic cultural context. It examines studies that investigate various innovations in Sambian, Indian, Navajo, Omani, and Samoan cultures that actively incorporate sexual ambiguity into their respective social and cultural systems. Specifically, it describes the nature of the social interactions, cultural significance, and adaptive strategies of these groups in relation to the respective cultural frameworks within which they exist. Looking at cultures whose constructions of sexuality acknowledge (and therefore legitimize) the existence of sexual ambiguity with the incorporation of a third sex class, this paper also discusses alternatives to the binary Western model of human sexuality... With many heated debates currently surrounding Western social policy issues such as civil rights protections for sexually diverse peoples, samesex marriages, and demographic reporting techniques such as the United States Census, the study of sexual ambiguity is especially relevant. Considering alternative models of sexual identity and classification provides us the opportunities to reconsider the implications of differential treatment towards sexually ambiguous and divergent peoples in Western society, to reevaluate and potentially redefine Western cultural assumptions about sexual "normalcy" and "deviance," and to renew our commitment to embracing human diversity.
The binary gender: a constructed phenomenon N/A. - What’s the big deal about gender? – Female Identity as Intersex (2010): A U.N. report by Finnish international law professor and United Nations Special Rapporteur, Martin Scheinin, says, “gender is not synonymous with women, and, instead, encompasses the social constructions that underlie how women’s and men’s roles, functions and responsibilities, including in relation to sexual orientation and gender identity, are understood.” The report stresses “gender is not static; it is changeable over time and across contexts.” - New UN Report Pushes Gender as a Social Construct not Based in Nature (2009). - IWF in the News: UN Report Says 'Gender Is Not Static, It Is Changeable'. - The Report: Protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism. - Transgender People Face Violence, Obstacles (2007).

Undoing Gender (Deutsch, 2007): "Doing Gender," the groundbreaking article by Candace West and Don Zimmerman, appeared in the first issue of Gender & Society in 1987. Arguably one of the most important writings in the contemporary study of gender, "Doing Gender" has been cited 634 times, including 60 times in 2005 alone ... West and Zimmerman argued that gender is not something we are, but something we do. Gender must be continually socially reconstructed in light of "normative conceptions" of men and women. People act with the awareness that they will be judged according to what is deemed appropriate feminine or masculine behavior. These normative conceptions of men and women vary across time, ethnic group, and social situation, but the opportunity to behave as manly men or womanly women is ubiquitous. Thus, gender is an ongoing emergent aspect of social interaction... - An evolutionary perspective of sex-typed toy preferences: pink, blue, and the brain (2003). - Was pink originally the color for boys and blue for girls?

"Doing Gender": The impact and future of a salient sociological concept (Messerschmidt, 2009): "Doing Gender" was one of the conceptual breakthroughs that compellingly responded to this theoretical impasse and considerably influenced feminist theory worldwide. The concept of "doing gender" was supported and confirmed during twenty years of intense sociological scrutiny and substantial cogent research. Not surprisingly, this concept became, and remains, immensely salient in sociology, gender studies, and feminist theory. Over the last eight years my research on "doing gender" has concentrated primarily on white working-class violent and non-violent teenage boys and girls (Messerschmidt, 2000, 2004). Through life-history interviews, I uncovered detailed accounts of gender interaction in three distinct "sites": the family, the school, and the peer group. This research validates the social processes involved in "doing gender." - Gender performativity (Wikipedia). - When Gender Isn't a Given (2004). - Building Boxes and Policing Boundaries: (De)Constructing Intersexuality, Transgender and Bisexuality (2008). - Dismantling the Gender Binary System (2009).
Out/Performing Our Selves: Sex, Gender and Cartesian Dualism (Wilton, 2000): Elements of feminist and queer theories and of phenomenology are used to engage with Cartesian dualism, in order to clarify the political implications of medicalized male-to-female (MTF) discourses. Particular attention is paid to descriptions of MTF as being in the `wrong' body. The author argues that this idea depends on a `shallow' model of corporeality, and suggests that a chronotopic model, by which the body is conceptualized as a process existing in both time and space, is more useful in counter-hegemonic theory. - Welcoming Dialogue: A Further Response to Out/Performing Our Selves (Hird, 2002).

Androgyny and Gender Dialetics (1997): "One of the biggest and most prevalent mistakes in Western Culture is the idea that there exist two separate and "opposite" genders, masculinity and femininity. This gender dualism is not only false and without any factual or scientific support, but also very harmful. One strategy to overcome this wrongness is the idea of androgyny, by which masculinity and femininity are not conceived as opposite ends of one spectrum, but as two separate spectrums: you can be or have both at once (or neither), not only the one or the other." - What is Gender? - Swinburne's Philosophy of Androgyny. - Androgyne: The Union of Opposites Within (Alternate Link). - The Amazon Connection. - Gender Gallery.

Culture, sexual lifeways, and developmental subjectivities: rethinking sexual taxonomies (1998, Social Research): "In the twenty years since the first English translation of Foucault's (1980) History of Sexuality, Volume 1, sexual categories have become conceptually and ideologically suspect. Building on Foucault's post-structural critique of sexual ideas and discourses, lesbian, gay, and feminist theorists have repeatedly contested the essential, intrinsic, or universal character of sexual identities." - Is Gender Identity Disorder in Children a Mental Disorder? (Sex Roles) "Because of flaws in the DSM-IV definition of mental disorder, and limitations of the current research base, there is insufficient evidence to make any conclusive statement regarding children who experience discomfort with their biological sex. The concluding recommendation is that, given current knowledge, the diagnostic category of GID in children in its current form should not appear in future editions of the DSM."

Winter, Sam (2012). Lost in Transition: Transgender People,
Rights and HIV Vulnerability in the Asia-Pacific Region.
Bangkok, Thailand: United Nations Development Programme,
UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Centre. PDF
Download. The Asia-Pacific region is home to a large
number of trans* people; individuals whose gender identity,
and/or expression of their gender, differs from social norms
related to their gender of birth.1 Across the region it can
be speculated that there are possibly 9-9.5 million trans*
people, though existing research is scattered and
small-scale, and is largely limited to trans* women.2
Asia-Pacific research, again scattered and small-scale,
indicates alarming numbers of trans* women are HIV positive,
with prevalence rates as high as 49 percent. There appear to
be no data at all on HIV rates among trans* men, an emerging
identity group. The number of trans* people of either gender
who have died of AIDS, or what proportion they represent of
overall AIDS-related deaths, is unknown. The regional HIV
epidemic among trans* people is strongly linked to stigma
and prejudice. This review, focusing on the literature
post-2000, seeks to examine literature on laws, regulations,
policies and practices that prompt, reinforce, reflect or
express stigma and prejudice towards trans* people. It seeks
to identify vulnerabilities to HIV and barriers to access or
uptake of HIV related healthcare services, and attempts to
establish a research agenda aimed at providing the sort of
data that will enable a reduction in future risk, as well as
better access to treatment, care and support for trans*
people living with HIV...
transsexuals gaining acceptance (2004):
Transsexuals such as Chen Lili, who hoped to compete in the
Chinese Miss Universe contest, are making gains against social
disapproval... Transsexuals have ceased to be taboo in urban
China in recent years, and a total of about 500 Chinese men
have so far had their sex changed surgically, according to
statistics given by the country's state media. Chen, who
underwent a sex change in November, first began attracting
local attention as a hormone-taking transvestite singer in
China's southern Guangdong Province more than eight years
ago... "In 10 years the most important thing I want to achieve
is to keep myself alive, to keep my life," she said, before
laughing and claiming to be joking. The thousands of dollars
she has spent on her physical transformation have come from
singing. Despite offers, she has never prostituted herself,
she said. Chen and the Jiangsu Sirrim clinic have also come to
an agreement where she promises to do all media interviews at
the clinic in exchange for free surgical procedures. - China
to regulate transsexual operations (2009).
in China – The Third Sex, Transgender People Struggle
(2012): China has one of the largest populations of
transgender people in the world, it is estimated that over
400,000 people consider themselves to be trapped in the body
of the wrong gender. However many of these individuals face an
uphill struggle if they wish to undertake surgery for sexual
reassignment... In 2009, the government published fairly
stringent regulations for anyone hoping to have surgery – some
of these conditions seem reasonable given the severity of the
surgery... The main requirements of the policy are as
follows:... So China isn’t Thailand, and despite the fact that
the country imports enormous numbers of Thai transsexuals to
work as show girls – Chinese transsexuals have a much harder
time being accepted into society... The final barrier to many
of China’s transsexuals is that of money, gender reassignment
is expensive (estimates are around 200,000 RMB) and many
Chinese people simply cannot afford to have an operation of
this nature. In a country where the average wage is 1,500 RMB
a month, the average worker would need to go without food,
clothes, a place to live, etc. for 11 years to be able to
afford a sex change.
Malaysia transsexual who lost name fight dies (2011): A 25-year-old transsexual who lost a court battle in Muslim-majority Malaysia to change his name to that of a woman has died, a report citing heart problems said Sunday. On July 18, a high court in conservative eastern Terengganu state ruled that a person's sex was determined at birth so Ashraf Hafiz Abdul Aziz could not change the name on his identity card to that of a female. The Sunday Star newspaper said Ashraf was admitted to a hospital on Friday for low blood pressure and chest pains, having earlier suffered a bout of vomiting and dizzy spells. Ashraf, a former pharmaceutical assistant who underwent a full sex-change operation in neighboring Thailand in 2008, was born with an abnormally small penis, and died on Friday due to a heart problem, doctors said.- Malaysian transsexual vows to fight for her rights (2011). - Malaysian transgender singer fined for being ‘feminine’ (2012): Islamic court fines transgender woman after she ‘repents’ ...

Además, damos apoyo según las necesidades y disponibilidades de la red, tales como pronunciamientos y apoyo político, entre otros. Trabajamos en varios frentes el derecho a la identidad de género, al respeto, a la igualdad de oportunidades, al acceso a la salud, a la no violencia hacia las trans, que en muchos casos es ejercida por la misma policía que debería velar por nuestra seguridad.

Transgender and gender-variant people, as a population, are incarcerated at even higher rates than the general population of African American men, although the majority of those incarcerated are also people of color. In San Francisco, a 1997 study conducted by the city’s Department of Public Health found that 67 percent of MTF respondents and 30 percent of FTM respondents had a history of incarceration. Almost a third of MTF respondents had been jailed in the past year. The numbers are staggering: among U.S. adults, only 3 percent are or have been incarcerated. Overall, “unless they’re rich, [most transgender people have] spent a little time in jail,” says Judy Greenspan.

Trans-IGLA: The Trans people and groups (travestis, transgender, transsexuals and intersexual), members, along with LGB (Lesbian, gays, bisexuals) identities that are federated in ILGA, form at this moment the Trans Secretariat, which approaches the variety of situations that reflect the themes of this sector about sex-generic diversity. But this space is open for ALL people and Trans organizations who would like to take part of the discussion and decide the course of this page and possibly to integrate themselves to a world-wide federation materialized in ILGA. According to the agreement of the pre-conference during the World-wide Conference of ILGA in Geneva 2006, this site is made to tie all the Trans people and organizations around the world, through its 6 regions: North America; Latin America and the Caribbean; Africa; Europe; Asia; New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific islands (ANZAPI). It is a really interesting challenge and we hope that we all take an active a part in it.

My work emerges from a tradition of photographing transgender and transsexual people, for example the work of Loren Cameron, Catherine Opie, and Del LaGrace Volcano. However, I have moved beyond their work, through a methodology that involves collaboration, empowering the subject, and presenting the projection of the self from the participant's point of view... My study explores the first adaptation of photo-elicitation to be undertaken with transsexual people into their experiences of the relationship between gender, self-image, the body, and the social domain.

visual arts offer a 'safe place' to discuss issues around the

The development of these GLBT information web pages were made possible through the collaboration of Richard Ramsay (Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary) and Pierre Tremblay (independent researcher, writer, and GLBT children and youth advocate) who both recognize that often needed social changes occur as the result of knowledge availability and dissemination. Additional Information at: Warning, Acknowledgments, Authors.
These GLBTQ Info-Pages were located at the University of Southampton from 2000 to 2003, this being the result of a collaboration with Dr. Chris Bagley, Department of Social Work Studies, University of Southampton.
Graphics are compliments of Websight West. The Synergy Centre donated computer/Internet time to facilitate the construction of this GLBT information site. Both are owned by a Chris Hooymans, a friend, and former publisher of a gay & lesbian magazine in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Chris continues to offer his expertise whenever needed and he has supplied, free of charge, the hosting of the site - Youth Suicide Problems: A Gay / Bisexual Male Focus - where a smaller - GLBTQ Education Section - and the Internet Resource Page for this subject (http://www.youth-suicide.com/gay-bisexual/links3a.htm) is located.
Many thanks to Wendy Stephens from The Department of Communications Media, University of Calgary. She communicated with publishers of many academic journals (an ongoing time-consuming process) for permission to reproduce abstracts from papers and studies on these GLBT information web pages.
The information made available on this web page does not represent all the relevant information available on the Internet, nor in professional journals and in other publications.
This web page was constructed to supply a spectrum of information for individuals seeking to understand one or more of the many gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer and transgender issues.
