After reading Horace Miner’s Body Ritual among the Nacirema, describe at least one of the Nacirema’s rituals or beliefs. What is your overall impression of the Nacirema after reading the article?
Miner provides hints throughout the article identifying the Nacirema, but never comes right out and identifies this strange society. Who are the Nacirema and why do you think the author writes the article in this way? In other words, what point is the author trying to make? HINT: Think about the word Nacirema spells backward.
According to Risman and Seale, how do young girls view “girly-girls” vs. “tomboys”? In addition, how do children police masculinity and heterosexuality.
