Activity: Sex in context

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?
  • Why?
