BP 7

Reflecting on specific gender messages in your culture. Clearly name 2 messages that are restrictive and 2 that inspire inclusivity.

1.Gender stability. Gender stays the same; as a female, I will grow into a woman.

2. Gender. By age 3 to 4 as a female I am today and tomorrow I will still be a female.

Examples that inspire inclusivity would be to dress in Men clothing or work in construction but I am still a female

From birth I was born female and family dressed me with dresses and hair with ribbons to identify as female. Behaviors such as sit with your legs closed and stop running around because that is the behavior of a boy.

Example in which books gives:

“You don’t want to be a mean girl who makes her friend cry!”

The word girl which reflects to gender is still expressed in the books example that conforms the gender identity in which society says they should act or respond according to societies norms.
