Following a short film about a third Samoan gender called the “Fa ‘affines,” the time for analyzing and deep conversation began. Reflecting on our own culture’s perception on gender roles lead our class debate in different and interesting directions. The class has around 20 people, but the diversity within our small group’s differing opinions never ceases to surprise me.
