Standpoint Theory (58-61)

What are your different social locations?
Born as a male, Arab, male gendered, a cisgendered, and a heterosexual
How have your experiences within these locations affected your perceptions
on gender, sexuality, race, and class?
As an Arab male, gender rules were very straightforward back home and
both sexes were strictly raised and treated to become cisgender. That is how
I thankfully became the person I am today.
Has membership in any of your social locations afforded you privileges that
others may not have experienced?
Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women werent allowed to drive.
Therefore, as a male, I was able to drive where women had to get a male driver.

Which theory or combination of theories do you think best describes

gender development?

I think cultural theory has evolved gender the most. In the past, people that were
not cisgendered would generally hide behind their closets. However, when the
culture started to advance (particularly genderwise), society have become more
open about it and gender kept developing ever since.
