GENDER AND SEXUALITY TERMS AND DEFINITIONS

There's probably a lot of new words and definitions that you need to get up to speed on before being able to discuss gender identity and sexual orientation easily.


To start, click on this Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Terms and Definitions link.

Want to learn even more LGBTQ terms and definitions? Like Cisgender? FtM? Genderqueer? Check out the extensive list on this link!

While we're on the subject...WORDS MATTER and what you say can be hurtful. Is it okay to say "GAY"? Check the flowchart below to find out.

Gender is one of those things that people think they understand, but in most cases they don't.

Hopefully by now you're realizing that GENDER IDENTITY is not an EITHER/OR thing...in other words it's NOT either female or male.


The link below is of THE GENDERBREAD PERSON. With an elbow partner, dive into this picture and see if you can begin to understand the complexities of gender and sexual orientation.

Finally, let's talk about GENDER IDENTITY, SEXUAL ORIENTATION and MENTAL HEALTH.

Many gay teens are at risk of mental health problems, like depression, anxiety, and suicide, because of bullying, non-acceptance, stigmatization, and fear of coming out.


The world is changing rapidly to support gay rights. Gay marriage is legal in Canada (since 2005) and the rights of LGBT Canadians are protected by Section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

If you need support:

IT GETS BETTER PROJECT: The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.

3. UNDERSTANDING CONSENT AND SEXUAL LIMITS

What is meant by sexual consent?

Yes means Yes..and No means No.


You may have heard the phrase “No means no” before.

The message is simple: when someone says no to any sexual activity, you shouldn’t try to make it happen. Otherwise, it’s sexual assault, or sexual coercion, and that’s not okay.

But there’s a whole lot more to “consent” than just understanding that “no means no.” Wanna know how and why? Read below!

What is the difference between a Healthy and an Unhealthy Relationship?

Big image

In the 3 scenarios below, discuss with a partner or small group how the relationship could be more healthy.

Scenario 1 – Hannah

Hannah’s best friend, Megan, has been going out with Andrew. Hannah thinks Megan is obsessed about Andrew. While Hannah and Megan were hanging out watching movies together, Megan kept looking at her phone. Megan knew Andrew was hanging out with his friends and she was upset Andrew hadn’t texted her once all night and it was already 9:00 pm. Megan wanted to text Andrew and ask why he hadn’t texted her. What should Hannah tell her friend?


Scenario 2 – Will

Will really likes Maddie. At first Will thought it was cool that Maddie wanted to spend lots of time with him. She is always waiting at his locker every morning and when he gets out of class. Lately she started showing up at his football practice and waits for practice to end so they can walk home together. Maddie always lets him choose the movies that they go to and she’ll watch him play Guitar Hero for hours. What should Will do?


Scenario 3 – Marissa

Marissa and Jacob have been dating for two months. She really likes him a lot. He’s really nice and supports her interest in theatre, something her other friends don’t appreciate. In the last week, Jacob has been pressuring her to do more than kiss. He said all his friend’s girlfriends do more. Jacob’s parents will be gone tomorrow and he has invited her over to his house. Marissa would have to lie to her parents because she can’t be at Jacob’s house without parents being there. Marissa didn’t sleep last night and has a stomach ache today. What should Marissa do?


Scenario 4- Anda and Geeta

Anda is in a relationship with Geeta. It is Anda's first relationship and her parents do not know that she is a lesbian. She has asked Geeta to keep their relationship private until Anda feels comfortable to share her sexuality with her parents. Recently, Geeta has started threatening Anda that she will "out" her to everyone if she doesn't perform sexual acts for her. Geeta is demanding that Anda stop hanging out with other people and spend all her time with her.

When thinking in advance about sexual decision making, what are some of the important factors that should be considered?

Brainstorm a list with your partner. Be prepared to share with the class.

This activity is not asking you to plan to be sexually active...instead, you are being asked to consider some important factors so that you can be more sure of where you stand!


And remember: sexual decision making includes many different choices, including IF, WHEN, and HOW you will become sexually active.

It's important to consider your values when thinking about sexual decision making.
