Discussion Question- Laura

In Chapter 12: "Homophobia and Sexism as Popular Values" by David Bleich, the concept of "socially masculine thinking" is used to explain how normalized sexist and homophobic attacks against women and homosexuals have become, what are some ways that teachers can inspire students of all genders and sexual identities or expressions to reflect over generic feelings about themselves and others? What pedagogical activities can be helpful in encouraging students to reflect over their "own strong responses" to sexism and homophobia "as the result of the social repression" of homosexuality(LGBTQI) and women's empowerment(Goddess, witch)?
