English abstract
We, the authors of this essay are both students at the Bachelor Programme in Social Work at Malmö Högskola. During our education we have been reflecting on the gender perspective that is suppose to permeate the education. This essay aim to examine how some students at the Bachelor Programme in Social Work at Malmö Högskola, who identify themselves as GLBT , experience how questions regarding sex/gender and sexuality are spoken about during their education. We have a discursive perspective on how we understand norms and power of words and language. From a queerteorethic point of view we explain sex/gender and sexuality. We have made qualitative interviews with four students. The conclusion of this essay is, among other things, that our informers is not satisfied with the gender perspecitve at their education. The interviewed students inform that some teachers do not want to, or does not have the knowledge to talk about gender, in a way that satisfies them. Some of the students express that this leads to exclusion and discrimination of GLBT-persons at the education. They problematize this and ask for an intersectional- and norm critical perspective at their education. The society and our education as a part of the society, is permeated by heteronormative structures. These structures are needed to be pointed out and reflected on. We believe that social workers need this knowledge in order to do a good job and not to reproduce norms and discriminate.
