social pressure consequences Slide7
Human Sexuality Slide8
Fairly recent interest of anthropologistsMargret Mead (1935) and Bronsilaw
Malinowski (1929) are the first two anthropologists to study humans as sexual beings
Since their original work very few anthropological studies have been done
It is difficult as many people are private about their sexual lives
Especially if they fall out of the norms Eg. Gay or lesbian or teen premarital sexual activity Some anthropologists may also face difficulties because they feel uncomfortable because of their own feelings or gender barriers (females refusing to discuss their sexuality with strange males)Slide9
Human Sexuality cont.
However, cross-cultural studies of human sexuality have become more common since the 1980’sThere is a great deal of variation about how sexuality is viewed, controlled and practiced
To define sexuality would take as many definitions as there are relationships
. A woman in a lesbian relationship views it different from a woman in a heterosexual relationship etc. Slide10
Human Sexuality cont.
Though human sexuality is rooted in our biological nature, it is also influenced by our
Mukkuvar people in south India see female sexuality inseparable from fertility
Christian societies believe in chastity
The Ju/’hoansi view sexuality amongst the children as natural (still have rules)Sexual human relationships are dealt in every culture in a different way Slide11
Seen in a global perspective Slide12
Homosexuality is seen across the globe and has been for a very long time.
Homosexuality (Western Culture): The desire to have sexual relations with someone of the same sex.The Navajo of the United States believes that homosexuality has more to do with gender and gender roles than one’s sex.
In many cultures homosexuality is socially accepted and natural (
. Ancient Greece & Papua New Guinea).
Papua New Guinea – initiation into manhood included an element of homosexuality. The Etero believe that heterosexual intercourse actually weakens males, and should only take place for reproduction. Slide13
Transgenders or Alternative Genders
Transgenders are people who believe that their sex does not fit into their male or female gender.
are recognized by at 113 aboriginal groups in North America (
eg. Ingalik of Alaska & the Mojave of California). Two-Spirits may for sexual and emotional bonds with those of the same sex.When one decides to change genders they can enjoy special status in the community and also take on new social, religious and economic roles:HuntersWarriors Chiefs.Slide14
Anthropological Studies of Homosexuality
The field of homosexuality has taken some time to develop into a legitimate field of study.One of the most studied institutionalized same-sex communities amongst women was the 19
century Chinese sisterhood of
. Those in these sisterhoods who had sexual relations with women vowed to their Goddess Guan Yin that they would never marry a man.These sisterhoods acted as a support network for women, living in cooperative houses and helped one another. Along with the victory of the Red Army (1949), these sisterhoods were banned and many members fled the country.These studies focused more on the employment aspects of the sisterhood, avoiding its lesbian nature.Slide15
s Next? Avoidance of homosexuality is anthropology is changing.
There are more ethnographers studying the topic now such as
.Investigated the female mati of Paramaribo, Suriname who has sexual relations with both men and women, either simultaneously or consecutively.Studies from ethnographers such as Wekker are raising interesting questions in regards to cultures in relation to homosexual behavior and homosexual identity.
