Group 8 Final Presentation Supplement

Tonight I will be talking about intersex individuals and briefly hitting on the physiological aspect of it. For anyone curious or wants a clearer visual of this is a great website to illustrate the similarities and differences between male and female development. If I have time I may show it in class but wanted to put it here incase anyone is as curious as I was.http://www.sickkids.ca/childphysiology/cpwp/Genital/genitaldevelopment.htm

Another website to read - Racialicious

I'm waiting for the You Tubers to put the Tyra race experiment clips up. When they do, I'll post them.

For now, check out what this antiracist activist has to say about Tyra HERE.

Racialicious (formerly known as Mixed Media Watch) is a blog about the intersection of race and pop culture. Check out our daily updates on the latest celebrity gaffes, our no-holds-barred critique of questionable media representations, and of course, the inevitable Keanu Reeves newsflashes.

+ + +

What do you think about the Tyra show? Is it just entertainment? Is it a tool to bring raced, classed, and gendered issues to the mainstream? If professors like Michael Eric Dyson are her "experts" (and not some unknown non-Phd-holding "Dr."), is it like a healthy taste of GWSS on TV or just a watered down version of pop culture poltics? Post in your blog or on our course blog for some xtra credit y'all.
