UNFORMATTED ATTACHMENT PREVIEW

Start your response, by saying Hello X… RE: Role Strain and Role Conflict Many people experience role conflict depending on how one defines a role. In our reading, role conflict is said to occur “when the roles of our many statuses conflict with each other” (Barkan, 2011). I find it funny that the term role has been used often in our Sociology readings and that the term can also be used to refer to the part an actor plays in a movie, tv show, commercial, etc. In a way, it relates to Erving Gossman with his understanding of seeing social interaction as being a theatrical performance. In my case, my experience with role conflict include my statuses of student, sister, and provider. The role associated with being a full-time student is attending classes, turning in assignments, studying, taking exams, etc. For a sister, my role is hanging out with my siblings, watching their games/performances, having dinner with them, etc. As a provider, my role is to pay for various bills for certain family members since they are unable to provide for themselves. Certain times get conflicted when having to chose between studying, going to my brother’s football game in a different state (since I moved out a long time ago), and/or going to work. The main solution for this problem may sound cliche, but it seems to be time management. A good idea may be to write down a general outline for my week to make sure I can put everything I want to do into my schedule. If anyone has any other ideas I would love to hear them!

RE #2 : Agents of Socialization Hello XYZ… I was born as a girl and I identify as one. I was raised with my mom’s side of the family. My my mom’s family were very orthodox when it comes to dressing according to your “gender”, therefore, my mom would always dress me “like a girl would do”. As a baby I didn’t really have any choice but to wear whatever she would dress me with. While growing up, there was a stage in my life where I was trying to find myself and trying out styles with which I felt comfortable wearing and decided that I like clothes from the boy’s section. I had problems with my mom’s side of the family because I didn’t fulfill the stereotype that society has created about how a girl should dress. Over time, they accepted the way I dress and understood that society is the one that has created the stereotype of how each gender should dress like and that in reality dressing is a way of expression and that we’re free to dress the way we want to. I personally experienced a negative reinforcement whenever I dressed they way I like to but be applaude when I wore dresses, skirts or tight clothes. It was very shattering looking at them reactions because I never felt comfortable wearing those type of clothes and my family didn’t care at all but I’m very happy that my mom was always very supportive with me and happy to know that I made a change in my family’s mind because nowadays they just simply accept the way that now my younger relatives dress like.
