Answer each questions below at least 300 words.

1. “Rethinking Gender” (also called, in the online version, “How Science Is Helping us Understand Gender”) offers scientific information about the nature of gender identity. What is some of this scientific information and how might it help us understand people who are transgender or intersex? Does it challenge any of your own ideas about gender and gender identity? If so, how so?

2. What would you say is the main argument of “When Children Say They’re Trans”? What does Jesse Sangal want us to think? Who disagrees with her argument? What do you think of the argument? Is it persuasive? Why or why not?

3. How might oversimplification be a problem for people debating issues of gender identity? How might complex issues or topics in the two articles you read this week be oversimplified? Can you think of any oversimplified arguments that people have made about gender identity? Have you heard any oversimplification fallacies in people’s arguments about gender or gender identity?
