After reading Judith Lorber and visiting a toy store over the weekend, watch this episode of the TV show Roseanne. Note where you see characters reinforcing or challenging traditional notions of gender performance. For example, how does Jackie do femininity at the Lobo bar? How does Roseanne, in her Halloween costume, perform masculinity? What behaviors does she get right? Which threaten to expose her?
