    1000 words, 4 pages

    Human Sexuality has long been a heated debate in almost all societies.

    Third Sex

    1012 words, 5 pages

    Individuals in our society long for certainty, for events and things to have precise, descriptive definitions so that we can feel comfortable and in control. We long for routine and normalcy in our daily lives and devise words, as best we can, to place events into categories with implications of right and wrong. This is especially true in reference to sexual matters, both biological and psychological. In most societies sexuality is defined as opposites – dimorphic, female and male. Attached to this definition are ideas of how people should groom, present and behave.

    Analysis Of Aphra Behns To My Fair Clarinda

    1491 words, 6 pages

    Aphra Behn’s ‘To the fair Clarinda’ is a love poem with surprisingly modern insight. In this candidly erotic piece, the supposedly female speaker addresses her lover Clarinda, who may be biologically female yet plays both masculine and feminine roles in the poem. Though the speaker insinuates that in any sexual relationship there are definite masculine and feminine roles to fulfill, she overturns the notion that these are necessarily related to anatomy. “ To the fair Clarinda” seems to be a poem that celebrates the exotic delights of being with a hermaphrodite. However, Clarinda’s anatomy
