not
be
able
to
defend
myself
if
needed.

Also
as
a
result
of
looking
and
being
 non‐threatening,
I
have
had
many
different
people
approach
me
in
many
instances
where
I
feel
 like
they
would
not
approach
or
talk
to
another
threatening
individual.

In
addition,
I
have
been
 viewed
as
less
intelligent
by
boys
in
my
high
school
class.

For
example,
two
boys
in
my
class
 said
the
only
reason
why
I
made
top
grades
in
math
was
not
because
of
my
skill
but
because
I
 did
my
homework
when
they
did
not.

Later
my
teacher
helped
me
realize
that
I
was
just
as
 capable
as
them
to
succeed
at
math.


 
 My
strong
identification
with
gender
is
a
result
of
social
norms
and
relationships.

Social
 norms
of
the
United
States
gave
me
a
list
of
qualities
that
I
must
fit
into
in
order
to
be
a
 ‘normal’
girl.

Trying
to
fit
into
the
culture
of
my
peers,
I
adapted
the
qualities
I
listed
to
fit
in
 with
my
friends
of
the
same
gender.

I
learned
this
through
the
process
of
socialization
when
I
 learned
the
social
norms
of
being
female
in
my
culture.

It
gave
us
common
ground
qualities
 where
we
could
communicate
and
strengthen
the
values
given
to
us
by
society.

Even
before
 the
qualities
were
influenced
by
peer
relationships,
the
relationship
with
my
parents
provided
 me
with
early
social
norms
of
being
female.

I
learned
little
girls
wear
dresses
to
look
pretty,
do
 not
fight
with
others,
and
take
care
of
others.

with
my
gender,
