Paechter, Carrie – Gender and Education, 2006
This paper is basically about terminology. In it I discuss the terms "masculinity" and "femininity" and how they relate to being male and being female.

Hardy, Simon – Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning, 2004
Over the last 30 years academic discussion of pornography has been largely confined to questions about its social and psychological effects.

Dankmeijer, Peter – Journal of Gay & Lesbian Issues in Education, 2004
In this reflection on a personal history and growth of a gay teacher, there is clear line in the episodes ranging from closeted teacher to educational activist.

Gilbert, Lucia Albino; Rader, Jill – Counseling Psychologist, 2002
Gender theories provide a critical framework for considerations of heterosexual identity. Patriarchal power rests on the social meanings given to biological sex differences and to their reproduction as societal discourses regarding what it means to be a woman or a man. This is a crucial point and one that we believe is not fully recognized in the…
