Social Identity Timeline
I was born biologically female, I was raised as a woman.
When I was an infant and a toddler, my parents dressed me in lots of pink and dresses and skirts.
I was encouraged to like and play with girl toys: my love for Minnie Mouse was encouraged, but my love for Legos and Hot Wheels was mostly ignored.
Elementary and Middle
Growing up with two brothers, I was often compared to them.
I was discouraged from borrowing my brothers' clothes and wearing things that weren't "girly".
Often times in school, we would be split up by "girls and boys"
I hated dressing up and wearing skirts/dresses, and my friends would frequently try and convince me to get pretty (school dances were the worst!)
I was encouraged by my parents and counselors to take classes such as Parent Child Development and Cooking
I didn't have as much in common with my brothers as they did with each other, and when we would get in fights, my parents would tell me I was being emotional.
I was encouraged at home to study whatever I wanted
I was expected to go to college
I began college as an Engineering student
My lab partners who were men didn't trust me to complete assignments correctly.
People often assumed I was a nursing student
There were few women in my Engineering courses.
When I decided to switch to Psychology, most of the people in my life were confident that was a better choice for me
Power, Privilege, and Oppression
Power (or Social Power)
The tension or potential difference of influence that always exists between any two or more people or groups which may enable one person/group, with or without intention, to exercise some degree of control or influence of the actions or ideas of others. Also a social power gives you access to resources that enhance one's chances of getting what one needs or influencing others in order to lead a safe, productive, fulfilling life.
A right, advantage, favor or immunity specially granted or held by a certain group of individuals, group or class, and withheld from certain or all others.
The systematic and pervasive nature of social inequality woven throughout social institutions as well as embedded within individual consciousness. Oppression fuses institutional and systematic discrimination, personal bias, bigotry, and social prejudice in a complex web of relationships and structures that saturate most aspects of life in our society.
