Assignment: Model of Sexual  Orientation

For Reflective Project #3, you may choose one of the following three options. Please ensure that your paper is around 3 pages, double-spaced, with a heading (your name, course info, etc.) and a creative title. Remember that you must utilize ideas and concepts from the textbook, class lectures and discussions to illustrate your point, so the prompt that you choose to write about must reference any of those corresponding chapters, lectures, discussions, and/or activities. Lastly, factors such as spelling, punctuation, and grammar certainly count towards your reflection paper grade, so be sure to edit your paper beforehand.

Assignment: Model of Sexual Orientation

Below are the three prompts that you may choose (one) to write about:

1) Sexual Orientation: Outline both the Kinsey model of sexual orientation (Figure 2.3 in Chapter 12) and the Klein model of sexual orientation (class mini-lecture). What is similar? What is different? If you’ve reviewed these two models to see where you may lie, discuss your results if you are willing. Were you surprised by your results? Why or why not? You may also discuss this in more vague terms–what do you think of these models? For your review, both of these models can be viewed via PDF under this week’s module.

Then, discuss some key points related to the issue of maintaining sex and gender binaries (male/female and masculinity/femininity) in society. Why are they problematic? In what ways do they influence a skewed understanding of the terms “sex” and “gender,” as well as conformity to particular sexual orientation(s)? Be sure to illustrate your answer with explanations from the text, our lectures and/or other cited research.

-OR-

2) Marriage and Family: Many Americans claim to believe that “love is blind” and that romance can spring up anywhere, as long as two people have chemistry. Chapter 14, however, argues that Cupid’s arrow is largely aimed by society. What social factors play into the mate selection process? Explain.

Then, watch the documentary/biography “Meet the Patels” (it’s currently on Netflix: http://www.netflixreleases.com/meet-the-patels-2014/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.), and be sure to discuss the how what Ravi Patel is going through relates to the concepts presented in the text for this chapter.

Lastly, examine your own relationships (past, present, anticipated future, etc.) and discuss how these social factors influenced your own mate selection. Do you see any patterns in the people you tend to date and/or the circumstances? Describe these phenomena from your life in sociological terms from the text.

3) Marriage and Family – alternate, if you can’t find the documentary above: Many Americans claim to believe that “love is blind” and that romance can spring up anywhere, as long as two people have chemistry. Chapter 14, however, argues that Cupid’s arrow is largely aimed by society. What social factors play into the mate selection process? Explain.

Then, do some research on how other societies view and practice love and marriage, particularly within bi-cultural families, such as those who immigrated to the US in recent generations and are attempting to juggle a fine balance between customs in the US, and those of their native countries. Be sure to relate how some of these phenomena relate to the concepts presented in the text for this chapter, and remember to include citations to your sources within your paper, and at the end via a Works Cited or Bibliography.

NO PLAGIARISIM PLEASE !

SORCES CAN BE USED ONLY FROM THE BOOK

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
