Today´s way of life is based on power, control, and the constant battle perpetuated between women and men. The patriarchy, although primarily engineered and executed by men, dishonors men and the positive masculine as much as it dishonors women and the positive feminine. Sam Keen takes you on a journey to discover new routes to authentic manhood and create alternatives to definitions of masculinity that no longer work in today´s world. 1. Language: English.

Transitions of the Heart is the first collection to ever invite mothers of transgender and gender variant children of all ages to tell their own stories about their child’s gender transition. Often transitioning socially and emotionally alongside their child but rarely given a voice in the experience, mothers hold the key to familial and societal understanding of gender difference. Sharing stories of love, struggle, and acceptance, this collection of mother´s voices, representing a diversity of backgrounds and sexual orientations, affirms the experience of those who have raised and are currently raising transgender and gender variant children between the ages of five and fifty. Edited by Rachel Pepper, a gender specialist and co-author of the acclaimed book The Transgender Child, Transitions of the Heart will prove an invaluable resource for parents coming to terms with a child’s gender variance or transition. 1.

Why has gender inequality persisted for so long without revolutionary change? That´s the central question Joan Wallach Scott poses in her 1998 collection of essays, Gender and the Politics of History. Scott notes that obvious economic, social, and class inequalities have produced large-scale social change, but uncovering the reality of gender inequality has not done the same. Analyzing the ways in which language controls and shapes our understanding of experience, Scott argues that gender has already played a role in many social changes, but historians have lacked the theory needed to identify and describe that role. Scott insists that gender is not incidental to politics, social structures, or economics but is actually the main way to construct difference and hierarchies in society. Scott´s controversial work has had a lasting impact, both in academia and in the larger world. Why? Because she popularized the practice of examining how our thoughts and discussions about gender shape everyday life and political developments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Macat.com.

Contradictory and provocative pathways crisscross the terrain of gender among contemporary psychologists and psychoanalysts. Clearing a path through this terrain, Polly Young-Eisendrath describes and illustrates issues of gender and desire among women and men.Young-Eisendrath introduces three world views: premodern, modern, and postmodern. Then, she calls our attention to how we shape reality and clearly explains how a lived postmodern philosophy is essential for us to understand ourselves and how we can change.Next, she discusses gender and sex differences in terms of how the former are flexible and the latter are not. The division of the human community into the two exclusive groups of male and female has important psychological implications on both conscious and unconscious levels. Most depth psychological theories of gender and sex have been androcentric, taking males as the norm for health, and have failed to develop a full understanding of desire, opposition, and idealization between the sexes.One major theme in a depth psychology of gender is that of Woman as the object of desire. The Greek myth of Pandora deftly illustrates the problem of female beauty: as the ´´desire-awakening maiden´´ Pandora is powerful but empty. The link between female beauty, power, and evil teaches us about the consequences of female appearance as a commodity to be used among men. Zeus placed the curse of Pandora on humankind, as a punishment for the theft of fire from the gods, and we are still living with the effects of this patriarchal curse. The double bind of female beauty (damned if you engage it and damned if you don´t) must be lifted from the male-female relationships in this time of growing equality and reciprocity between the sexes.For women and men to reach their full potential of development as individuals and in relationships, they must break Pandora´s curse and free themselves from the myth of the power of female beauty.In w... 1.

It´s surprising that the term ´´heterosexuality´´ is less than 150 years old and that heterosexuality´s history has never before been written, given how obsessed we are with it. In Straight, independent scholar Hanne Blank delves deep into the contemporary psyche as well as the historical record to chronicle the realm of heterosexual relations - a subject that is anything but straight and narrow. Consider how Catholic monasticism, the reading of novels, the abolition of slavery, leisure time, divorce, and constipation of the bowels have all at some time been labeled enemies of the heterosexual state. With an extensive historical scope and plenty of juicy details and examples, Straight provides a fascinating look at the vagaries, schisms, and contradictions of what has so often been perceived as an irreducible fact of nature. 1.

Where in the world did queer go off to? Is it reigning in the ether? Did it fly up to the heavens without so much as a forewarning here on earth? Once upon a time, it was all the rage to belong to the category of ´´queer´´, that intellectual wing of the avant-garde movement to transcend gender and traditional sexual expression. Marriage was stifling and gender was singularly repressing that sense of je-ne-sais-quoi. Blah-blah-blah. You know the drill. 1. Language: English. Narrator: 411 Audio.

In this clear and concise text Chris Bartlett provides direct explanations for how to use and interpret vocabulary like ´´queer´´, ´´transgender´´, and ´´intersex´´. Writing to those who are unsure of how to talk about alternative sexualities and gender, the author uses case studies and historical examples to unpack this often misused and misunderstood vocabulary. For much of his life Chris felt unsure of how to politely address and to interact with people who place themselves outside of the traditionally encouraged heterosexual mold. This fear of appearing ignorant or rude led him to avoid interacting with some people and prevented him from sticking up for others when he should have. The truth is that being uncomfortable and unsure around a new concept does not make anyone a bad person but when that mindset prevents one from being fair and equitable to others then there is a problem. After listening to this Quick and Dirty Guide to LGBTQIA+ Vocabulary you´ll be confident enough to ask polite questions about gender and sexuality and informed enough to understand the answers. 1.

This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, and lies on the television. The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice. Penny speaks for a new feminism that is about justice and equality. It’s about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights. 1. Language: English.
