Consider the following pictures. Let’s say that all the individuals pictured are named “Chris.” Pick one and think about how you would describe Chris to a friend.
- Would you know which pronouns to use – him, her, he, she?
- Which features would you focus on or look for to help you choose the appropriate pronoun?
- If you can’t decide how to describe Chris, how does this make you feel?
- Will it bother you if aren’t told the sex of these individuals at the end of the activity?
