Step 1:
think of some stereotypes you’ve heard about certain genders or sexual orientations. e.g. “women are bad drivers,” “women hate having sex,” “men hate showing emotion,” “gay men have limp wrists,” etc. OR: refer to this list!

Step 2:
With these stereotypes in mind, write a 20-minute piece from the viewpoint of someone that is a different gender or sexual orientation than you. You must avoid giving any information that might point to the aforementioned stereotypes.

Step 3:
