Discuss how you think we (as a society) and you (as an individual) can combat the use of these phrases in day to day conversation and how we can work to empower “girls” and “gays” in a meaningful, positive way (vis a vis this use of language)

This Writing Assignment should be a minimum of three pages, which includes both your personal reflections and your analysis – analysis should include clear integration of the text (articles) and then additional materials (videos and/or supplemental readings).


Please watch the brief ad below and think about when was the first time you heard the phrase (“you/he/she ___________s like a girl!”).

Alternately, you can choose to think about the first time you heard the phrase (“you’re/that/it’s/they’re so gay!”)


  • Describe in one to three paragraphs when you first heard this phrase (whichever you chose “like a girl” or “so gay”).
  • Explain what the situation was, how old you were, whether it was toward you (personally), someone you were with or a stranger.
  • Discuss if it made you feel anything in particular (e.g. good, bad, indifferent).


  • Draw from the readings (primarily) and videos (secondarily) to explain how the use of the phrases shapes an individual’s agency, experience, opportunities, desires, sexuality and/or perceptions of themselves or others.
  • Think about “when and how” these phrases became bad/negative/used as insults.
  • When/how did they get so much power? You must cite from the text here (in-text citations, however no reference- end page is needed as we are all working off of the same articles/videos).


Discuss how you think we (as a society) and you (as an individual) can combat the use of these phrases in day to day conversation and how we can work to empower “girls” and “gays” in a meaningful, positive way (vis a vis this use of language).
