Just a personal observation:

I think the stereotypes are less workable in younger people.

They are much more post-structure and resist being defined.

It can be offensive to say that ‘women are like this & men are like that’ to younger people, as they tend to see the world in a more open minded way.

(But then again, maybe i’m generalising & stereotyping by saying that) Hehehe!

Pen 🙂

I think you are right Penny…….we had 12 young people sit down at the table on friday night to coordinate sydney Freedom 2 B[e] youth……sexual orientation and gender differences don’t seem to be as much of an issue.

maybe that has something to do with older people like myself having to carve out an identity in a world hostile to homosexuals.

It is very true Anthony

The legacy of those who have gone before us and their (your) hard work, has allowed us younger ones to be free & safe!

Not that i am really young, but i do appreciate all the hard work that has been done 🙂

Just as now, we not only preach Jesus’ inclusive love for those who are with us, but also for our children & the generations to come!

*laughs* How did we get from a discussion on the differences between male and female homosexuals to gay pride and the influence of the pro-gay movement?… Oh well never mind 😆 😆

Thanks for your thoughts.

I say we got there quite easily, as the influence of liberation movements has made space for people to just be themselves, outside of the stereotype. This is a PART of why younger people who do not fit the hetero-normative model don’t always fit the mold of gender stereotypes.

I do see some differences between men and women, but am very careful in my expression of this. There are LOTS of people who don’t fit molds (don’t most of us know it) & this can sometimes be difficult.

OK, so now i’m just crapping on 🙂

It will be interesting to see how the study pans out then won’t it? The idea is being pushed I imagine because it fits neatly with the whole “homosexuality is biological” theory. We characterise behaviours as being intrinsically femimine or masculine at a base level within heterosexuality anyway so to do so within homosexuality is possibly just as ligitimate *shrugs* I am of the younger generation but have no problem with the labels. Labeling a woman butch doesn’t mean they are not capable of displaying other personality or physical traits, its a broad term in the same way “masulinity” is, encompassing much but not limited exclusivly.
