The purpose of this research was to recognize issues present in my life, uncover the source of the issues and imagine possible solutions. This research used concepts and theories from assigned readings as well as ﬁlms shown in class. Through introspective self-exploration I was able to locate a possible source of the issues discussed in the research, namely sexuality and social construction. I then used this source to explore my social self within the context of sociological theories and concepts used in class. The result of this research was a better understanding of why certain issues have arisen in my life as well as a deeper clarity forming my future social self.
