Journal #9, due April 25th

This journal asks you to respond to Janet Mock’s writing. Although we will not have discussed it in class, you can use the following questions to guide your reading:

  1. What does Mock mean when she says,”I always knew I was a girl?” (p.16) and why is this statement important for her to make? What examples does she give to show us that she always knew herself to be a girl?
  2. How did her family respond to Mock’s expressions of femininity? Be specific.
  3. Who is Keisha, and why is she important to Mock?
  4. Who is Wendi, and what is her impact on Mock?

 

In your journal, please make connections to the class and the world by reflecting upon your reactions, questions, experience as related to this text. What does Mock’s writing show us about gender?
