Abstract or Summary

This chapter is concerned with sex and gender and the distinctions between them, and what is assumed about how a person expresses their sexuality. The intention of this chapter is to bring some of the unconscious assumptions about sex and gender, and sexual orientation into focus and to challenge some of the ideological beliefs that underpin them. Why these terms are important and what they have to do with cultural safety will be explored.
