The Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Any Two Modern Comic Worksdocx

By Perpetual Ugwu

Summary

Every society throughout history has social and cultural practices that discriminate against people on basis of gender. Gender is a social construct that explains the biological characteristic of being male or female and the behavioral expectations of the individual in the cultural milieu. The culture of a particular society assigns specific gender roles which are learned through the process of socialization. The justification for different roles by individuals is explained by their masculinity or femininity.
MEANING OF GENDER
The word “gender” is a derivation from the Latin word “genus” meaning group. It is commonly used to denote the biological and anatomical differences between males and females as defined by primary and secondary characteristics.
According to Kendal (2003),he defines gender as culturally and socially constructed differences between females and males found in the meanings beliefs and practices associated with femininity and masculinity. So, socially or culturally acquired attributes are expressed as power, roles, resources and privileges bestowed by virtue of sex which are fundamental of persons as either male or female. On the other hand, gender refers to the rights and obligations that are normative for men and women in a particular culture. This means that gender is culturally defined, dynamic, learned and is essentially driven by the ever-changing societal values-traditions, customs, conventions, mores and regulations.
