Society And Culture
Personal and Social Identity
The generation Z showed that gender made up people’s physicality on the outside, but overall generation Z believed that a person gender did not make up their identity. Generation Y said that it does because that is what physical makes you male or female, “body parts.” Although majority said that, it matters what on the inside.
Both generations believed gender did not make up a person’s identity.
During adolescence, peer groups tend to face dramatic changes. Adolescents tend to spend more time with their peers and have less adult supervision. Their communication shifts during this time as well- preferring to talk about school and their careers with their parents, and they enjoy talking about sex and other interpersonal relationships with their peers. Most individuals look to join peer groups who accept them, even if the group is involved in negative activities. Children are less likely to accept those who are different from them. And this is probably why Generation Z individuals value their peer's opinion above everyone else.
Research discovered from the questionnaire showed that the generations Z and Y chose a range of different options, the question which gave the choice to choose a specific gender. The options were male, female, gender free or either, the scale of results was all spread across all 4 categories under different generations.
Gender defines the relations between men and women, both perceptual and material. Gender is not determined biologically, as a result of the sexual characteristics of either women or men, but is constructed socially. It consist of people's social and cultural differences and characteristic on the inside and outside.
The media plays a very significant role in influencing an individual’s personal and social identity. In reference to the survey that had been conducted, the majority- both parties agree that the media affects the way individuals see themselves. This may be because the television and the social media (internet blog sites such as; Perez Hilton and Hollywood.com)
Individuals from Generation Z ( 5-19) and Generation Y ( 20-33 ) believed that identity are represented in social media. Women and transgendered/ and gay communities are the ones who are mostly affected by the way their gender/sexuality is being portrayed in the media. This shows that people today are more aware and informed by the issues of today’s humanity such as; same sex marriage, and are being more tolerant of the matter.
Whilst the majority of Generation Y prefers to take both of these opinions into consideration to balance it out. This may be because; Generation Y individuals have experienced more than those individuals from Generation Z- they have learned the art of listening to opinions that will only benefit them- also they do not experience the similar social pressure as those individuals from Generation Z- trying to please the people around- because they most likely have found their personal and social identity.
