Read and summarize: Baby X: A Fabulous Child Story. Discuss the important sociological concepts from this example / article.

This story was about a secret social experiment that involved a baby being born to parents that would raise it as gender neutral. The baby was named “X” and was’t never assigned a gender. The parents were given a manual on how to deal with everyday life and how to raise “X” to stay to keep from not associating it to any gender. The story describes that only the parents and scientist involved know “X”’s actual gender and nobody else is to know. They describe in story how people react with not being able to associate “x” with a gender and it frustrates them.  The story continues on to talk about how “X” finally starts school and in the beginning has a hard time because everyone is making fun of it for not associating to a gender, but overtime the other children realize how great “X” is because it is free of gender association and can do anything from play house to play basketball and do it well. The other children’s parents become upset because their children are no longer conforming to their assigned genders, so they want “X” to best evaluated and have a gender assigned to restore balance. “X” is evaluated and is said to be the least mixed up child he has ever seen. The other children’s parents are shocked to see that gender neutrality is better that be assigned to being a boy or girl, and they eventually come around and allow their kids to play with “X” again, so all the other kids began to act just like “X”.

  Imagine that you are assigned the opposite gender at birth, but that your race, ethnicity, religion and social class remain the same. Taking the information contained in this week’s readings describe how your life as a member of the opposite sex might differ from your life today. i.e. How are males and females viewed differently among your racial or ethnic group? Does gender make a difference? Would your role in the family be different based on being the opposite gender?

 My opposite gender would be female. As a female I believe I would have viewed as frail privileged southern girl. If I were female I believe I would have never joined the military, and I would have probably not been involved in sports. I also believe I would have completed my education by this point in my life. Gender where I am from makes a huge difference. In the south men are raised to be worker and tough and care takers and love sports and anything manly, and women are raised to have good etiquette and be well educated.

  Analyze how your own gender role has been shaped by your family, peers, school, and the mass media. Which seems to have had the most impact on you?

For me I would have to say that family, peers and mass media probably had the biggest impact on my gender role. I would my family impacted my gender roles subconsciously because I saw they my father went to work every day and my mother stay at home and cooked, clean, and did the receptionist job stuff for my dad. So I subconsciously associating that men work and do manly things and women clean and do office type work.  My peers influence my gender roles by me looking for social acceptance so I did the things they did like sports. Finally mass media affected my gender role by the promotion of stratification, by showing things like only girls playing with dolls and only boys playing football, thus further separating genders.

Many sociologists believe that it will be very difficult to eradicate sexual harassment from our culture. Why might this be the case? What steps would you suggest to work toward this goal?

Sexual harassment would be very difficult to eradicate because we all Identify as one specific gender, and being that we all associate with one gender we use sexual harassment as a tool to remain in our stratification category. One step we can take toward eliminating sexual harassment is implementing strict zero tolerance policies and enforce some type of punishment for violation like a fine.  It’s an extreme idea, but as deep rooted as sexual harassment is sometimes it takes a harsher punishment.

Do you find the structural-functional or the social-conflict analysis of gender-role inequality more convincing? Why?

I believe that the social conflict analysis of gender role inequality is more convincing. I believe this is true now more than ever because although on paper men and women have equality in gender there are still some people in the world that believe a woman belongs in the kitchen and a man belongs at work and these people seem to fight this as a silent war. For example women are allowed in some Special Forces career fields in the military, but who is to say they won’t make the training harder to keep women out.

  5. The important sociological concepts of the baby x experiment are how much society norms such as clothing and play impact our gender role identification. This also shows the reaction from the society over what they saw as deviant behavior from the Jones. They saw the child as confused because the parents was not teaching it to categorize as a male or female.

1. I find this question somewhat difficult to answer given the fact that I am the sole bread winner and my husband is the stay at home parent. Even when he was in the military I was still working a full time lower middle class job and going to school. I have been doing things characterized as different from the female gender in adult hood since, I finished high school. I don't think my life would be different except for the fact I would be classified as a male.

2. I do come from a traditional family so, I do still hold some of the traditional female values of the female gender. My father was a minister and as a young child before he and my mother divorced I was only supposed to wear modest dresses. Pants as forbidden. I do wear pants now, but I dress modestly "like a lady." I was also raised by the notion that females should take care of the household and family, it is the mans job to be the sole bread winner. That generalized gender role notion was quickly removed from my head once I witnessed my mom as a single mother struggle to raise three kids, and she was struggling because all the way up till divorce she lived what society (in that time) and religion considered the role of a women in a household and marriage.

3. Society has too many sexual influences through media, movies, music. Music of different genres sexualize women and in the music videos the women are sexualized further through their means of dress and their actions are portraying that the actions of the males are welcoming. Even women artist are sexualizing the female gender. Artist like Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus. Sexual harassment will always exist and I don't see a way for it to disappear because, society is sexualized and its all over the media, and television.

4. I believe the structural- functional of gender role equality more convincing. One reason being because women are now more equal to men and their is more of a interrelated role between male and females. I no longer see a struggle between men and women for it to be considered under the social conflict analysis.
