Stackable mezzanine bus connectors are used on some modular microcomputer accessory boards for systems such as the Arduino add-on daughterboards called "shields".

As an illustrative example of some design tradeoffs in power connector selection, consider the adjacent picture. They need to place people into distinct categories to know how we should feel about them. However, since one-way flow is implemented by forced-air fans or blowers, "backwards" gendered connections can be seen frequently in some systems, since all connections are typically sealed with duct sealing Gendered toys or tape to prevent leakage anyway.

These tubes usually come in sections, joined by inserting the male end often crimped with a special tool to slightly reduce its size into the female end of the next section. It is common practice to use female connectors for jacks, so the informal gender-based usage often happens to agree with the functional description of the technical standards.

He says that "courts often confuse sex, gender, and sexual orientation, and confuse them in a way that results in denying the rights not only of gays and lesbians, but also of those who do not present themselves or act in a manner traditionally expected of their sex".

In the absence of genderless connectors, gender changer fittings might be used to enable certain connections. Electrical and electronic[ edit ] Male VGA connector Gender of electrical connectors is defined by the pins Although the gender of tubing and plumbing fittings is usually obvious, this may not be true of electrical connectors because of their more complex and varying constructions.

These mating surfaces are mounted into identical fittings which can freely mate with any other, without regard for gender provided that the size and type are already matched.

These women usually have ordinary female appearances though nearly all girls with congenital adrenal hyperplasia CAH have corrective surgery performed on their genitals.

Angelina Jolie Confirms That Shiloh is Transgendered

Other buyers may simply be unaware of the restricted choices they are offered. In the case of electrical power connections, designers do not reverse connector gender in such a casual fashion, because exposing live AC line power on male connectors is unsafe and generally illegal. Causality with respect to gender identity disorder is sub-divisible into genetic, prenatal hormonal, postnatal social, and post-pubertal hormonal determinants, but there is, as yet, no comprehensive and detailed theory of causality.

She notes that a transition occurred when several feminist scholars, such as Sandra Harding and Joan Scottbegan to conceive of gender "as an analytic category within which humans think about and organize their social activity".

Triaxial BNC connector, a male plug Twinaxial cable connector, a male plug Coaxial Type N connectora male plug Female left and male weatherproof plugs for photovoltaic solar panels This HDMI plug is conventionally assigned to male gender Toslink male plug optical fiber connector Gender selection in electronic design[ edit ] Electronic designers often select female jack connectors for fixed mounting on electronic equipment they design.

In electrical connections where voltage or current is sufficient to cause injurythe part permanently connected to the power source is invariably female, with concealed contacts, to prevent inadvertent touching of live conductors.

Hurst comments that in a society where we present our genders so distinctly, there can often be severe consequences for breaking these cultural norms. Some military fiber optical cables also have hermaphroditic connectors to prevent "wrong gender" connector problems in field deployments.

Why it Matters

See the discussion of Genderless connectors elsewhere in this article for more detailed information. For example, the female D-subminiature connector body projects outward from the mounting plane of the chassis, and this protrusion could be erroneously construed as male.

Classifying Gendered toys to mathematical graph theoryUSB buses are directed treeswhereas FireWire buses have a true bus network topology. Further confusion can be caused by the term " jack ", which is used for both female and male connectors and typically refers Gendered toys the fixed panel side of a connector pair.

Close examination of these connectors reveals that the contact "pins" are not actually pins, but instead are conductive surfaces that slide past each other when they mate.

With the exception of reverse polarity BNC or TNC, where the outer shell determines the gender and the innermost connecting points are opposite to a standard connector, for example a female RP-TNC connector has a solid innermost pin.

These levels may also influence sexuality, with non-heterosexual persons exhibiting sex atypical behavior in childhood. For example, Michael Schwalbe believes that humans must be taught how to act appropriately in their designated gender to fill the role properly, and that the way people behave as masculine or feminine interacts with social expectations.

The pins make this connector male; the surrounding shield does not change that. Some commonly seen examples of hermaphroditic connectors include the SAE connector for 12 V DC power, jackhammer air hose connectors, and the Anderson Powerpole series of modular high-current power connectors.Pinkstinks is a campaign that targets the products, media and marketing that prescribe heavily stereotyped and limiting roles to young girls.

We believe that all children – girls and boys - are affected by the ‘pinkification’ of girlhood. Impacts of Mining. Mining can impact local communities both positively and negatively.

Although this aspect is not highlighted in their promotional literature, several common construction toys embody gendered (and in some cases, genderless) mechanical interconnections. This should not be surprising, since these toys feature the nearly infinite flexibility and versatility of shape that a modular interconnect architecture can enable.
