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?
