Subject:
Alcohol and You

The holidays are the season for drinking... right?
Of course, just as there are plenty of people who enjoy alcohol, there are many students who are still underage, or people who can't drink or don't want to drink, regardless of their age.
This month's session of Fuwa Cafe will be a non-alcoholic tea party where we chat about how we deal with alcohol.


We'll enjoy tea and coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:

"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me"
"I might be attracted to both men and women"
"I have no interest in romance"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man"
"I have a man's body, but I want to be seen as a woman"
"I don't want others to determine my gender for me"
"I don't want to put a label on my sexual identity."

Besides these examples, if you have something else in mind and want to talk it over, please feel free to bring it up. With beverages and snacks prepared, we are waiting for you to come chat with us!

Subject:
Places We Live, Places We Want to Live

What kind of place do you currently live in, and in what kind of place would you like to reside in the future?
Maybe it's an area, a certain kind of architecture, the interior or outside of a building, or the kind of people you want to live with. Or maybe it's your own home, a dorm, or a sharehouse. There are many, many elements to be considered when we talk about where we live.
Why don't you pop over for a chat about living spaces, in connection with gender and sexuality?


We'll enjoy tea and coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:

"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me"
"I might be attracted to both men and women"
"I have no interest in romance"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man"
"I have a man's body, but I want to be seen as a woman"
"I don't want others to determine my gender for me"
"I don't want to put a label on my sexual identity."

Besides these examples, if you have something else in mind and want to talk it over, please feel free to bring it up. With beverages and snacks prepared, we are waiting for you to come chat with us!

Gender, Sexuality, and Campus Life Vol.01: Possibilities Guide in ICU (ver.1) Full Text (PDF, A4, 20pages, 2.1MB)

About This Guide
The "Gender, Sexuality, and Campus Life Vol.1: ICU Possibilities Guide" was created to provide support to students attending ICU (International Christian University) in order for them to obtain a better learning environment. CGS (Center for Gender Studies) is in charge of the editing and publication of this guide. It is a revised and reoriented version of the "LGBT in ICU Student Guidebook," which has been published since 2012.*1 Our decision to refocus and rename the guide was founded on two goals: one, to change the title to reflect the chief aim of the guide, which is to verify information about campus life from a gender and sexuality perspective; and two, to cast off the unintended reputation that ICU supports LGBT students. The current title is based on a proposal by ICU undergraduates.
The guide contains information about institutional support here at ICU, based on how actual cases were handled in the past. It introduces information that may be useful for university life in terms of gender and sexuality, such as the handling of cases pertaining to students who are at unease with their gender--for example, transgender or GID*2 students--as well as how to register for the student-accessible Nursing Room on campus.
The information listed in this guide reflects the measures that have been made possible at ICU, and may not fit each individual's needs or expectations. CGS will continue its work to create a more comfortable environment for students, and as such, we will periodically update this guide. We at CGS hope to keep expanding what is possible at ICU, thanks to the voices of students.

*1 LGBT, "LGBT in ICU Student Guidebook" An acronym formed by taking the first letters of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. In recent years, it has come into use as a general term to refer to sexual minorities. Occasionally, it is written with other letters, such as Q (Questioning, Queer) or A (Asexual, Ally). Of course, sexual minorities are not limited to the four categories of LGBT, nor are gender and sexuality-related difficulties limited only to minorities. The title, "LGBT in ICU Student Guidebook: Transgender and GID Edition" was chosen based on the aforementioned limitations, and for two major reasons: one was that we wanted to include the word "transgender," which was the main topic of the guide; the second was because we wanted a title that anticipated a second edition that treated other genders and sexualities besides transgender.
*2 Gender Identity Disorder A medical term occasionally written as GID, formed by taking the first letters of each word. In recent years, there has been a movement advocating the use of the word "gender dysphoria" instead of GID.
