Subject: Gender Studies
Sex and gender are often used interchangeably, but do not have the same meaning. Explain the difference between sex and gender, and when each of these terms should be appropriately used.
Sex refers to a biological, genetic category. Sex is often determined using genital anatomy, and can also be determined using genetics. Sex categories include female, male, and intersex. Gender is how someone chooses to express themselves. Gender can be aligned with one's sex (cisgender) or not. Gender is a broad spectrum that includes many different categories, including cisgender women and men, transgender women and men, and gender fluid people. Gender cannot be defined using biology and is based on an individual person's choices and expression. Sex is often used within medical settings. For instance, when you are born, your birth certificate lists your 'sex' based on your anatomy. You might also be asked your sex when going to the doctor to rule out certain medical conditions. Gender, however, is more personal. Gender determines the pronouns we want others to use to describe us (she/her, he/him, they/them), how we might dress, and how we might behave. The fundamental difference between sex and gender is biology and choice; sex is something that is assigned to you based on your anatomy and genetics, and gender is something you choose based on how you want to present yourself to the world.
Subject: US History
Examine the primary source "The Declaration of Independence." Using the document itself and historical context, conduct a historical analysis. What is the purpose of the document? What is it trying to convey? What does it tell us about American History? Use specific examples in your answer.
The Declaration of Independence was published on July 4, 1776 as an act of defiance against Britain's colonial rule over its 13 North American colonies as one of the sparks of the American Revolution. The document itself has two purposes: to explain to the British government why the colonies were rebelling against them, and to inspire colonists to join in the rebellion. The Declaration begins by stating the colonies' intention to separate from the British empire. In the second paragraph, it embarks upon a mission to convince its reader why this is necessary, among them, the famous "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." Drawing upon Enlightenment philosophy, the Declaration contends that people are born with these "unalienable Rights" (though notably, the writers of the Declaration did not certainly mean that everyone was born with these rights, due to their continued support of the system of slavery), and that these rights were denied to them by the British empire. Moving forward, the Declaration contains a list of grievances, outlining all of the ways in which King George III and the British government have wronged them. The Declaration ends by stating that the colonists have tried to reason with the British government, but were ignored. Therefore, it is necessary for the colonies to break free of the British empire and establish their own government. The Declaration of Independence is an interesting document precisely because of its persuasive power. It does not only try to convince the British empire of the colonies' reasons to leave the empire, but the colonists themselves. The Declaration was reprinted and spread throughout the colonies as a way to further inspire and unite colonists against the British. Prior to its publication, the American Revolution was a divisive issue, in which many colonists either sided with the British or had not taken sides. By studying the Declaration closely and seeing its use of rhetoric, we can better understand the Declaration's role in spurring the American Revolution and bringing popular support to the war for independence.
