    By Gisela Steins

    Woher kommen wir, wer sind wir und wohin gehen wir? Diese drei Fragen beantworten zu wollen, heißt, sich mit Identität zu beschäftigen. Je nach unserem kulturellen und individuellen Hintergrund kommen wir zu sehr unterschiedlichen Antworten. Diese fallen aber auch sehr unterschiedlich aus, wenn wir die Identität eines Mädchens, einer Frau oder die eines Jungen, eines Mannes beschreiben.

Die kritische Reflexion der Menschenbilder kommt nicht zu einer letzten Antwort, sondern verdeutlicht, dass die Beschäftigung mit Identität, auch die geschlechtsspezifische Betrachtung, sich einfachen Antworten entzieht.
