Intersectionality and LGBTQ
Transcript of Intersectionality and LGBTQ
Intersectionality- The observation and study of the discrimination between different groups of minorities.
8.3 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 29 years old identify as gay or transgender; whereas, only 4.6 percent of men in this age group identify this way (Krehely & Miller, 2012).
Transgender women are 6 times more likely than the general population to experience significant depressive symptoms (Gonzalez, Bockting, Beckman, & Duran, 2012).
Transgender people experience the highest rates of suicidal ideation, with 41 percent of respondents in a recent study of more than 6,400 transgender people reporting that they have attempted suicide at some point in their lives (Cray, 2012).
According to the National Center For Injury Prevention and Control, suicide is the third leading cause of death among persons aged 15-24 years old, with 15.8% of high school students reporting the had seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year. It is also reported that females are more likely than males to have had suicidal thoughts.
Sex- The biological makeup of one's reproductive organs. Simply, are you male or female.
Gender- It is the social role of being male or female. It is determined by a person's lifestyle and not by biology.
