1. Uncritical viewing of media depictions of both direct and indirect violence has been shown to prompt aggressive behavior. As noted in the discussion of Mean Girls, some media depictions of violence are created to prompt viewers to empathize with victims of violence or to understand and address why people commit violence. How might encouraging empathy with a victim, showing the aftermath of violence, or other techniques in a film prompt critical thinking? Do you believe showing violence to encourage empathy may help reduce aggressive behavior? Why or why not? 2. Drawing from Lesson 7, discuss some of the changes and trends among families in the United States over the past few decades. What changes have been most influential for families and family life? Why? How have changes in policies (structure) and attitudes (culture) influenced same-sex parenthood? 3. Describe how both heterosexual and same-sex couples negotiate and balance work and family life. What were some the challenges discussed in Lesson 9 regarding challenges related to balancing work and family. Explain the various ways that the men in the study decided who would reduce their time in paid employment. 4. In the concluding chapter of Gay Dads: Transitions to Adoptive Fatherhood (Chapter 7), the author described two distinct groups, “accommodators” and “resisters.” Describe some of the characteristics of each group. What did the author identify as problematic with these groups? Why? 5. What were some of the ideas that the author of Gay Dads: Transitions to Adoptive Fatherhood proposed for future research? What are some of your own ideas regarding how research on this topic could be expanded? For example: What’s missing? What could be expanded? Would surveys, intensive interviews, or ethnographic methods be best-suited to further explore same-sex parenthood? Why? 6. Finally, please pose a discussion question for your classmates.
