Description of Submission:
"I am submitting my undergraduate honors thesis, which was produced as a result of field research I conducted on a college campus with members of a support group called "Fluid Sexuality."  I explored the process of identification for individuals whose gender and/or sexuality do not conform to heteronormative models, including the ways in which terminology is created, used and adopted."- Shannon

Why Karen and Melody Liked It: This was a very well written essay.  We liked that it discussed the new gender issue topic.  It was very thorough and had good analysis/research.
