Abstract
The aim of this study is to examine norms about gender and sexuality, expressed and reproduced in relation between young people based on sex education in the danish primary school. By norm-critical approach the aim is to show how visability can challenge the binary idea of gender together with heteronormativity and open up to alternative views of gender and sexuality. The main empirical material consists of two qualitative interviews with a group of five students in secondary school at the age of 16-17 years. Together with this comes 10 texts of memory work, written by the students. Theoretically the study is based on a queerfeminist perspective seeing gender and sexuality as socially constructed by discourses, power and norms. The... (More)

The analysis shows how the discourses among students, based on their sex education, rank perceptions of gender and sexuality within the binary and heteronormative.

Abstract (Danish)
Formålet med denne undersøgelse er kvalitativt at se på normer omkring køn og seksualitet, der kommer til udtryk og (re)konstrueres i relation mellem unge mennesker med udgangspunkt i seksualundervisning. Med normkritisk tilgang peger undersøgelsen på, hvordan synliggørelse af den binære kønsopfattelse og heteronormativitet kan åbne op for mindre normative diskurser om køn og seksualitet. Det empiriske materiale består af 2 fokusgruppe interviews med 5 folkeskoleelever i alderen 16 -17 år, samt 10 mindeshistorier udarbejdet af disse elever. Opgaven bygger på et queerfeministisk perspektiv, hvor køn og seksualitet ses som sociale konstruktioner, der skabes igennem diskurser, magt og normer. Analysen viser, hvordan diskurserne blandt...

Opgaven bygger på et queerfeministisk perspektiv, hvor køn og seksualitet ses som sociale konstruktioner, der skabes igennem diskurser, magt og normer. Analysen viser, hvordan diskurserne blandt eleverne med afsæt i deres seksualundervisning, rangordner opfattelser af køn og seksualitet indenfor det binære og heteronormative. Samtidig peger analysen på, hvordan synliggørelse af normer kan åbne op for reflektion og diskussion af hegemoniske forestillinger om køn og seksualitet. (Less)
