Cross dressing, sex, and gender by Vern L Bullough( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In any society, the perception of femininity and masculinity is not necessarily dependent on female or male genitalia. Cross dressing, gender impersonation, and long-term masquerades of the opposite sex are commonplace throughout history. In contemporary American culture the behavior occurs most often among male heterosexuals and homosexuals, sometimes for erotic pleasure, sometimes not. In the past, however, cross dressing was for the most part practiced more by women than men. Although males often burlesqued women and gave comic impersonations of them, they rarely attempted a change of public gender until the twentieth century. This phenomenon, according to Vern L. Bullough and Bonnie Bullough, has implications for any understanding of the changing relationships between the sexes in the twentieth century. In most Western societies, being a man and demonstrating masculinity is more highly prized than being a woman and displaying femininity. Some non-Western societies, however, are more tolerant and even encourage men to behave like women and women to act like men. Cross Dressing, Sex, and Gender not only surveys cross dressing and gender impersonation throughout history and in a variety of cultures, but also examines the medical, biological, psychological, and sociological findings that have been presented in the modern scientific literature. This volume offers the results of the authors' research into contemporary gender issues and the search for explanations. After examining the various current theories regarding cross dressing and gender impersonation, the Bulloughs offer their own theory. This book, destined to become a classic in its field, is the culmination of thirty years of research by the Bulloughs into gender impersonation and cross dressing. Their groundbreaking findings will be of interest to anyone involved in the debate over nature versus nurture, and have implications not only for scholars in the various social sciences and sex and gender studies, but for educators, nurses, physicians, feminist, gays, lesbians, and general readers. This work will be of more personal interest to anyone who identifies as a transvestite or transsexual or who has been classified by medical and psychiatric professionals as suffering from gender dysphoria. Cross Dressing, Sex, and Gender covers a wide range of cultures and periods. As the first comprehensive attempt to examine the phenomenon of cross dressing, it will be of interest to students and scholars of social history, sociology, nursing, and women's studies

The Law and the expanding nursing role by Bonnie Bullough( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a time, the archaic medical and nursing practice acts made overt role expansion for nurses difficult. Although a variety of formal and informal coping mechanisms evolved to work around the laws, the laws remained a significant barrier to the open use of nurses in extended roles. This situation is now rapidly changing as state laws are revised. A variety of approaches are being used, and it is important that nurses and legislators understand the implications of the differing methods. - Introduction

Prostitution : an illustrated social history by Vern L Bullough( Book )

7 editions published between 1978 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a huge historical panorama of the forms and practices prostitution has assumed in many cultures over many centuries. It concentrates on prostitution in the nations of the West, but also extensively depicts it as it has existed in the Near East, India, and the Far East. Its comprehensive approach, its profuse illustrations, its extraordinarily tantalizing and useful bibliography make PROSTITUTION: AN ILLUSTRATED SOCIAL HISTORY quite simply a book like no other on the subject. As the debate over abolition or regulation rages hotter than ever, the ideas and evidence marshaled here will read symphathetically and with utility by feminists, police, civil libertarians, prostitutes themselves and all those interested - whether personally or professionally - in this profoundly human institution

Poverty, ethnic identity, and health care by Bonnie Bullough( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tries to present the health care problems of the major ethnic minority groups in perspective. Although poverty is probably the most crucial variable in the genesis of these problems, there are still many subtle and not so subtle forms of discrimination operating in the health field. Unfortunately, discrimination in other aspects of American life also has consequences for health and in turn poor health helps to perpetuate the cycle of alienation and poverty. It is emphasized that there are no simple solutions, but that the problems come together into a kind of Gordian knot. There are however, rational and possible steps to take to cut that knot, including: (1) eliminating poverty, (2) effectively enforcing the laws against discrimination, and (3) revising our health care delivery system to provide total coverage for all of the people. The nine chapters of this book focus on the following topics: (1) the health care delivery problem; (2) immigrant minority groups; (3) black Americans; (4) the Spanish-speaking minority groups; (5) the Native Americans; (6) how poverty and hunger transcend racial lines; (7) mental health and mental illness; (8) discrimination and segregation; and, (9) improving health care delivery.

Sexual attitudes : myths & realities by Vern L Bullough( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Sexual Attitudes: Myths and Realities, internationally acclaimed sexologists Vern L. Bullough and Bonnie Bullough take readers on a guided tour through the many assumptions and misconceptions we harbor about our own sexuality, as they bring us up to date on a variety of sexual and related issues. How did masturbation evolve from being regarded as a cause of insanity to being a normal part of sexual development? When did the medical profession stop viewing homosexuality as a sin or sickness, and accept it as a valid form of sexual expression? How did abortion move from being an illegal act, performed in secrecy under dangerous conditions, to a constitutionally protected right? The authors highlight the ways in which social, moral, and religious attitudes have dramatically changed from being founded on myths to relying on more science-based realities. The Bulloughs argue that accepting new knowledge need not undermine morality even though it challenges entrenched, often unfounded, assumptions about our sexual behavior. They contend that our traditional attitudes about sex must be continuously rethought and updated rather than shrouded in mystery and myth. Moral values can still be maintained even while acknowledging the existence of vastly more accurate information about the physiology of sex and the many ways in which we choose to express our sexuality
