Between the Gender Lines: Wu figures by Brad Wierbowski Think of your most noticeable feature. But whatever it is, for better or worse, it is probably not your most salient feature to the world around you.
Gender identity haunts every aspect of our lives, dictating the outcomes of our conversations, our workplaces, our relationships — even our bath products. Before most infants are named, they are assigned a sex based on the appearance of their external genitalia by a third party.
These decisions are dolled out in a typically binary fashion, with no expectations for ambiguity.
This is the norm — but has this simplicity led us astray? In March of this year, Governor Pat McCrory of North Carolina signed into law the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, banning individuals from public restrooms that do not correspond to their assigned biological sex.
This controversial legislation was the first of its kind— though certainly not for lack of trying. S, primarily in the Midwest and South, have attempted, but failed, to bring such bills into law in the past year. But if we are to regulate gender, we must first assess the extent of our knowledge on the topic.
These lists, while not exhaustive, are exhausting. The labels are useful in some respects, much like any other label denoting origin or role — they help us navigate social situations and can often be signs of respect.
It is a natural human inclination to categorize, but broad assumptions can also lead to stereotyping. To limit the scope of this article, we will focus on transgender identity. An incomplete and incomprehensive representation of gender identity and sexual orientation.
Transgender individuals are those who identify with a gender that differs from their assigned sex. This is a facet of identity that is completely distinct from sexual orientation.
These graphs do not represent the full spectrum of either facet, as they are multidimensional. This juxtaposes cisgender, or those who identify with their assigned gender.
Importantly, transgender identity is independent of sexual orientation. The subset of transgender individuals who choose to undergo sexual reassignment surgery are often denoted as transsexual.
Rather, those who had suffered ailments could vastly attribute their afflictions to societal stigma, discrimination, and violence. With most mammals, however, the majority of individuals are cisgender male or female; transgender individuals are estimated to comprise about 0.
Little is known about the causes of transsexuality, and many of the studies that have been conducted — particularly psychological studies — have since been widely discredited more on that later. However, scientists do seem to have some information on the biological basis of several factors.
First and foremost, is gender identity genetic? It seems the answer is yes — though, as with most traits involving identity, there is some environmental influence. One classic way for scientists to test whether a trait which can be any characteristic from red hair to cancer susceptibility to love of horror movies is influenced by genetics is twin studies.
Identical twins have the exact same genetic background, and are usually raised in the same environment. Fraternal nonidentical twins, however, share only half their genes, but tend to also be raised in the same environment. Thus, if identical twins tend to share a trait more than fraternal twins, that trait is probably influenced by genetics.
Several studies have shown that identical twins are more often both transgender than fraternal twins, indicating that there is indeed a genetic influence for this identity. So, what genes might be responsible? Transgender women tend to have brain structures that resemble cisgender women, rather than cisgender men.
Two sexually dimorphic differing between men and women areas of the brain are often compared between men and women. The bed nucleus of the stria terminalus BSTc and sexually dimorphic nucleus of transgender women are more similar to those of cisgender woman than to those of cisgender men, suggesting that the general brain structure of these women is in keeping with their gender identity.
In andtwo independent teams of researchers decided to examine a region of the brain called the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis BSTc in trans- and cisgender men and women Figure 2.Researchers at the university conducted a study to find out what really is the “perfect” female body.
At the end of the day, they found that model Kelly Brook (pictured below) fit the description of an ideal woman’s body. As can be seen by the examples of Kelly Brook’s pictures, the figure that the “perfect body” measurement promotes is a curvy and full-figured female.
And this is quite contrary to the slender and tall women that the fashion industry promotes. The outcome came as a surprise to many people in the scientific and modelling community.
Although there is no doubt that Brook is a very attractive woman, many people thought that the “perfect” woman’s body would be thinner based on standards set by advertising and modelling agencies. Body as an Object 3 of models appearing in Vogue and Ladies Home Journal revealed that their bust-to-waist ratios had decreased steadily since , while American women under the age of 30 have become progressively heavier (Morrison ).
