Now that you are at the end of the module, take a look at the responses that you provided at the beginning of our time together.

Here they are again:


1.Does the way in which you approach a patient differ if you know they are female or male (e.g., the tone of your voice, the way you sit, the choice of word you use, etc...)?
2.Do you treat babies differently if they are male or female? Do you think people should treat male and female babies differently (e.g., tone of voice, choice of toys, colour of clothing, etc...)?
3.How do you feel if you’re not sure about someone’s sex? For example, if you can’t tell by their name before you meet them, or are unsure about their appearance?
4.What are your attitudes towards same-sex relationships? Do you think that homosexuality is a moral decision? If so, is it a "right" or a "wrong" choice?
5.How do gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, trans-sexual and/or intersexed people make you feel? Do you become uncomfortable/angry/fearful when you are around someone who identifies with a sexual preference different than your own? Are you indifferent towards those who have a different sexual preference than yourself? Do you welcome people from all sexual preference backgrounds?
6.Do you expect to treat patients who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, trans-sexual and/or intersexed? If so, do you expect that you will treat them any different than your heterosexual patients?
7.After participating in this module, have your views on the LGBTTIQ population changed?
8.Why or why not?
9.Have you learned anything about the way you think?
10.Imagine how you would feel if you thought you were truly meant to be someone of the opposite sex. What would that be like?
