Gender studies

Sex, Lies and Stereotypes explores the shifting nature of gender role stereotypes and changing attitudes to sexuality, addressing the myths and the 'black and white' thinking that so many of us adopt in relation to male and female roles. It proposes a new way of perceiving life that could potentially revolutionize the way that we interact as humans. Dr Gary Wood asserts that 'men are from earth and women are from earth; it's high time we got over it.' He suggests that pop psychology focuses too much on the differences between the sexes, and argues that our relationships could be transformed if we viewed individuals for their personalities rather than merely their anatomy, as aspects of femininity can spill over into males, and vice versa. This book challenges us to question our assumptions and accept that there are grey areas in most people's gender identities.
