I hope visiting All Mixed Up Perspectives on Transgenderism and 'Gender Identity Disorder' was helpful and informative for you. It's taken a lot for me to figure out who I am and where I fit in the world. Part of how I now see myself is why I share these experiences with you. It's because of your visits that I continue developing this web-site! I would greatly appreciate if you would consider putting a link on your site to my site.

This is very important information. If divorce was more accessible and acceptable there would have been more singe family homes. However, it would be difficult for women to support their families because there were less jobs for women at that time, and for a variety of reasons. There was of course as much domestic violence, incest and alcoholism during the 50s as is now. Now we have access to media and more help available to assist these situations. There was a big push for cocktail parties in the 50s and there was lost of drinking at home, at work and during lunch. Another item regarding life in the 50s many men died around 50 years of age, this could be due to the pressures they had trying to be the male role model. And it benefitted the wife because then she could continue on without the abuse of the over masculine husband. I was watching an episode of Bewitched and was surprised at the way Darren treated Sam. She helped him with his work and he belittled her and said there was no way she could have come up with those advertising ideas. She was only a woman and must have applied witchcraft to be so creative. Samatha took the lecture and was submissive and demure about it. These are the lessons that were taught in the 50s for gendering. Good thing we have it all worked out now. LOL
Thank you for this article.
German speakers have also raised questions about how sexism intersects with grammar.  The German language is heavily inflected for gender, number, and case; nearly all nouns denoting the occupations or statuses of human beings are gender-differentiated. For more gender-neutral constructions, gerund nouns are sometimes used instead, as this completely eliminates the grammatical gender distinction in the plural, and significantly reduces it in the singular. For example, instead of die Studenten ("the men students") or die Studentinnen ("the women students"), one writes die Studierenden ("the [people who are] studying").  However, this approach introduces an element of ambiguity, because gerund nouns more precisely denote one currently engaged in the activity, rather than one who routinely engages in it as their primary occupation.
