Refer to the online reading handout, Age, Race, Class and Sex in this week’s module by Audre Lorde.

What is the mythical norm?

How does it distinguish and demonstrate the multiple ways we can inhabit both dominant and subordinate categories?

What are the consequences or experiences of inhabiting multiple subordinate categories?

How do the consequences and/or experiences change as we occupy more subordinate categories? How do you relate? Where do you fall in this series of categories?

How has this impacted your life and world experience?
