Hello again and welcome back! This week we continue our increased coverage of gender and sexuality for PRIDE month with research on sex testing in athletics, queer criminality, and a historical look at contraception campaigns in India.
“Enforcing the Gender Binary through Sex Testing in Athletics,” by Jean Marie DeOrnellas. We rounded up research on sex testing in athletics and how these tests enforce a rigid gender binary.
“How India Got Men to Choose Contraception,” by Allison Nobles. New research in Gender & Society finds that scientists and state officials used masculinity norms to convince men to choose contraception in post-war India.
