Please number your answers Does our campus have a student group dedicated to welcoming queer students? If you’re not sure, do a little independent research to find out. If so, what does the group communicate through its name, activities and interactions with the larger campus? Does our campus have an LGBTQ center? In general, what does the presence or absence of a queer center communicate about a college campus? What are the benefits of having a queer or LGBTQ center on campus for all students, regardless of sexual or gender identity? Drawing from Lesson 4, consider this question as it pertains to LGBT couples and children, do the laws matter? Based on what you learned in Lesson 4, formulate an argument whether the laws matter or not and why. Additionally, select a legal issue related to gender, sexuality, and family, such as same-sex marriage, gay/lesbian parenthood, foster parenting, or adoption. For this legal issue, look for evidence within and beyond this week’s reading and lesson regarding who has been privileged by legislative and judicial action. How has this issue been differently understood during at least two points in time? Describe continued activist work related to this issue. Analyze a music video, film, or TV series in terms of the messages it provides about men’s and women’s sexuality. First, briefly describe this piece of media (e.g., the name of the music video, film, or TV show, background information on it, target audience, etc.). In your opinion, is this piece of media heternormative? How can you tell? Does it acknowledge or celebrate queer sexuality? If so, in what ways? If not, why do you think that is? Within this example, to what extent are women and men sexual agents (individuals making their own choices to fulfill personal goals), and to what extent are they sexual objects (acted on by others)? In the lesson it states, “The inequities faced by same-sex couples and families also extend to the cultural sphere. For example, in their multi-wave survey of Americans’ views of family, Powell et al. (2010) argue that one of the most difficult challenges for same-sex couples is the way they are ‘counted out’ of the definition of family.” Drawing from what you’ve learned in previous readings/lessons describe the inequities faced by same-sex couples and families in the cultural sphere. Describe some ways in which same-sex parents are both similar and different from heterosexual couples with children. Additionally, drawing from Lesson 6, describe the family structure and child well-being debate in sociological research. Drawing from sociological research (e.g., Amato, 2012; Cohen, 2012; Osborne, 2012; Regnerus, 2012). what are some of the strengths and limitations of each side of the argument? Some argue that scholars were “too hard” on Regnerus for his research findings. Do you agree? Why or why not? Finally, please pose a discussion question for your classmates.
