Media Journal : Sex Change
On April 25th, 2007.USA channel showed an episode of sex change. In our class we saw how Sexuality is Socially Constructed, in a sense that people sexual orientation is imposed and med-up. This case support and contradict this believe. The case was of two identical twins, they were both boys. One of them got a very bad sirconcision that they had to remove the entire male organ. Well, one specialist convinced the parent that if they remove every thing from the boy as far as the male organ is concern and make him a new female sex; the boy will be no different then other girls in the neighborhood. The Doctor argument was that sexual identity is made up by society and that if the boy is raise a girls he will be nothing else than a girl. So they went on with the sex operation, hormone therapy the works. The journey for the young boy was not easy he as a little girl acted as a boy, he got often sick and was handful for the nannies most of them quit. One of the skim was to never tell the now girl that he was ever a boy so they change birth certificate at the hospital and every thing, no one except the parent and the sex Doctor new about this. Unfortunately at fourteen, the girl started loving girls and making out with them the parent panicked and increased the amount of therapy which involved making the twins kissing each other. I know it is gross but it does not end there. The girl was raped, on the scene, there was a male seaman of a twin, and the detectives assumed it was the male twin, but it was the girl who was raped, not the boy. How do you emplane this? The whole story unveiled for both the detective and the twins. The twins arrange to kill the doctor and even leave saliva on the scene but the detective can not tell who did it.
On one hand the case of gender construction is very accurate as we studied it in class, this case shows that the boy in most of the time behaved like a girl, had breasts and spook like a girl. She did feminine chores and every thing that women do. The case of sexuality as constructed by the society is proved to be wrong because the boy steel producing male seamen and prefers having sex with women when he was raised to love boys. It seams to me that in this case, her body spook to her, that there are some stuff that no one can control, some stuff are just
biological not imposed by society .
