Resource summary

Identity
1 Identity is who you are. It is a combination of things you are born with and social constructs. Identity can be narrowed to seven key parts: Class, Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Sexuality, National Identity and hybrid identity. All of this contributes to your identity. It's how other people view you.
1.1 ETHNICITY
1.1.1 HYBRID IDENTITY
1.1.2 NATIONAL IDENTITY
1.2 GENDER
1.3 AGE
1.3.1 Age is how many years a person has been alive. Throughout different ages, people either physically or mentally change and certain status is linked to different ages.
1.4 CLASS
1.4.1 Class is a way to categorise people who share a similar economic and social situation. It can lead to development of different norms and values, and is related to cultural characteristics.
1.4.1.1 Marxism HATES class with a passion. They believe it's the cause of everything wrong in society. The upper class, or bourgeoisie, is the controlling force of society and everything works for them. They create a false idea that their culture is superior, and make middle and lower class feel ashamed of who they are. The lower class is the most looked down upon in society - which in turn creates many problems.
1.4.1.2 Functionalists believe class difference is good because it creates competition in society. They do not care about the individual and thus do not care about bad things occurring to individuals due to class.
1.5 SEXUALITY
1.6 Culture is a way of life. It's looked at by structuralists.
