Answer the two following questions in essay form. Each answer should be ~400 words in length total of ~800 words 400 for each question. You should refer only to the enclosed readings in answering the questions and indicate page numbers in parentheses for any direct citations. You are not required to submit a list of works cited.
1) On p.169 of his article “From Homophobia and Heterosexism to Heteronormativity”, Gust Yep articulates the effects of what he calls “soul murder” and “internalized homophobia”. Compare and contrast Yep’s description of the micro-level effects of heteronormativity with Jeffrey Week’s definition of social constructivism on p.22 of his interview called “The Social Construction of Sexuality”. What does each author say about the notions of agency and choice in the development of an individual’s sexual identity?
2) Consider the article “One is Not Born a Woman” by Monique Wittig alongside Adrienne Rich’s article “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence”. Both authors offer arguments in favor of a political understanding of lesbian identity, and suggest that lesbianism is a liberatory practice for women. Despite these common threads, the two authors differ in their understandings of the categories of gender. Compare and contrast each author’s perspective, using examples from the texts to support your response.
