PowerPoint Slideshow: "DISORDERED OR JUST DIFFERENT? MYTH, SCIENCE AND SEXUALITY."
This "Disordered or Just Different" slideshow, that I use in my live presentation of the same name, tweaks and builds on my earlier slideshow ("Science and Sexuality"). "Disordered or Just Different" covers the biology of core sexuality (genital development, sexual identity, and sexual orientation) but then builds on this foundation by distinguishing between sex and gender and adding some anthropological considerations. This new slideshow presentation culminates with a scientific indictment of the (pseudo)medical practitioners who are too quick to classify the merely different as disordered and who continue to harm gay, lesbian, transsexual, and intersex peoples.
