Social Networking Sites
Twitter and Instagram icons
Social networking sites have become very popular. I personally engage in Twitter and Instagram the most. One day I came across the the Instagram page of King Amiyah, also known as Amiyah Scott and her twitter account. She often talks about how you should be yourself and not listen to negativity. I had seen her pictures on other social networking sites in the past as well. It was usually a picture of her when she was a little boy and her now as a beautiful woman. It was also often used to show that guys can look just like a woman if they wanted to and to prove that you can not tell sometimes when a boy turns into a girl.
When I stumbled across Amiyah’s page it made me immediately think of my Gender and Communication class. I decided to do further research on her and I discovered quite a bit of information about Amiyah who once was Arthur.
The picture I saw in the past.
About Amiyah Scott
When I was searching for more information on Amiyah I came across the same article on different sites. It talks about how Amiyah is a transgender. She is known for having relationships with famous men.
But not just men, “downlow” men. Which is a term that is used for men who mess with other men but hide it. She also is known for Ballroom dancing.
Amiyah talks about how when she was little she saw other girls hit puberty and she wanted to have what they had, female body parts and be like them. In Gendered Lives, by Dr. Julia T Wood she writes that, the social learning theory is a passive learning process by which individuals “learn to be masculine or feminine by imitating others and getting responses from others to their behaviors.” Passive learning process is when you learn how to be masculine or feminine by doing what you see other people do and their reactions they get back from it and that’s what she did. So she loves the woman she has become.
