dc.description.abstract This creative project consists of eight (8) videos which explore various aspects of gender theory and develops an educational tool meant to help explain these issues, The Gender Mixer, presented through a website. Episode one, The Gender Binary, explains how Western culture looks at gender and how and why that world view is collapsing. The Gender Mixer’s theoretical basis in the works of Alfred Kinsey and Howard Gardner is detailed in episode two. Episode three examines the latest theories of Biological Sex while the possible origin of Gender Identity is explored in episode four. Sexual Orientation is covered in both episode five and six where episode five discusses the controversy between “born this way” theorists and “learned sexuality” theorist while episode sex explores pansexuality, asexuality and demisexuality and demonstrates that these are not different kinds of sexuality but simply outgrowths of normal human sexuality. Episode seven looks at the concept of Romantic Orientation and its difference from Sexual Orientation. Finally, episode eight advances the concept of Gender Presentation, how we all use personal style to communicate who we are and what our gender is. All of the videos are available through via YouT en_US
