IT IS FOR CLASS? IT IS ACADEMIC… it is this, in any case: Social Cognitive Theory of Gender Development and Differentiation
also caveat: i haven’t gotten all the way through + it was still written in 1999, so i cannot say what their position on trans identities are, if trans identities are even mentioned, or if their theory would be applicable to trans experiences. this was written over ten years before GID was taken out of the DSM.
so, you know. trans identities were de-pathologized TWO MINUTES AGO by academic standards, and the material has yet to catch up.
hahahaha so this article from fucking 1999 just spent four pages completely shredding evolutionary psychology’s claims for the ancestral origin of gender difference
get in the game, bros, you are BEHIND THE TIMES
