The gender debate needs to be made more alive in the society all through the year. In the recent past and part of the present time, there has been a slow growing gender discussion on issues facing women with disabilities like the challenge of Gender Based Violence. One of the biggest challenge is lack of resources to make it a consistent discussion, this, then, leaves it to be a more of an annual talk which is seen to have impact at a particular period or time of the year and forgotten immediately after the event. The continuous awareness creation by some Disabled Persons organizations leaves out challenges facing women with disabilities. Most of their approaches are informed by a one sex research, research carried out among men with disabilities then applied to all persons with disabilities as an umbrella problem solving action process. There is need for a single sex research among women with disabilities in order to bring to light the realities of women with disabilities and their experience with disability. And this does not mean that we need to apply femaleness to all people we see as female with disabilities.
The issues of gender identity, sexual orientation and biological sexual identity need to be put into serious consideration when doing such researches. This is because the differences that these different aspects expose an individual to psychologically differ from one individual to the other. The popular perception of what people do and don’t do sexually and what people do and feel is often very different. This is not to be determined or defined by being either male or female in relation to the average universally understood as the gender and roles of male and female. There is need to put into consideration the physiological, psychological and social elements of sex without putting too much emphasis on the social constructionism theory. Identity should not only be based on how people are expected to interact with others or even reactions to the expectations of the society. Instead, identity is an aspect of an individual which should be as a result of the interaction of an individual’s psychological, physiological and also social aspects of one’s environment.
It becomes hard to understand human behavior when the study of human behavior is strictly based on brute facts and institutional facts. This is a very weak form of social constructionism. Alternatively, it is reliable when human behavior is studied from the perspective of strong social constructionism where the whole process is based on language, habits or actions. This can give a guidance to understand that human behavior and identity is an aspect that is dynamic. There is no fact that is just naturally existing, we create what we want to believe in and we also make what we want to be and this depends on what makes one happy, satisfied and able to relate to others as well as contribute to the growth of humanity.
