Reading Guide:  (Un) Necessary Toughness?: Those “Loud Black Girls” and Those “Quiet Asian  Boys” Joy Lei 1) What does Lei mean when she claims that our identity is a "production"  that is always in process and never complete?   In what ways could your  own personaly identity be considered an on-going production?  What  discourses of knowledge (systems of ideas and values) do you utilize in  making your own on-going self-identity?  In what kinds of  circumstances  do you find that your identity changes or that you "self-perform"  differently? 2) Why does Lei claim (by using ideas from anthropologist Judith Butler) that  your gender identity , i.e., your identity as a man or a woman, is actually  never permanently fixed but is instead an ongoing performance that us  never fully acheived?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
