When doing my research, I found many accounts of feral children that were not legit sources. I think this concept of feral children is so odd to many people, and such a difficult topic to talk about because people don't want to imagine these innocent children being neglected. I found a video that shares a small piece of the history and gives many examples of feral children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkRNQ3NMKZo&feature=related
I have learned much about sex vs. gender in a few of the classes I have taken since coming to college. It is not something I had ever compared before I was asked to define the difference between the two. I think the two terms are used to interchangeably that people don't know how to define the two until they are taught. I thought this website gave the best examples of defining the two in different enough ways that people might be able to pick up quickly on. http://www.who.int/gender/whatisgender/en/index.html
The idea of "man" vs. "woman" can quickly lead to a heated debate amongst many Americans. There are the old-fashion views of men and women, where the man is the provider and the woman is the nurturer. There is the more democratic view where woman are just as able and capable as men. and of course there is those that are in between. I think it is interesting to listen to the radicals on each end of this debate because in my opinion there is absolutely no difference in capability between a man and a woman in the working world. I think this gap is based largely on the societal separation.

Enculturation is a very important process, as it can affect development and thought process of each generation.
As mentioned in this article (http://www.monitor.co.ug/News/Education/-/688336/1004328/-/dvicvf/-/), enculturation is a necessary thinking skill acquired during development.
It has been shown in studies that enculturation does not reflect intelligence, just thought processes and development. This is especially present in feral children: they take on the characteristics and habits of their surrounding environment. Such behavior does not point to lack of intelligence, but rather a different development process, a different enculturation.
Sex vs Gender is a topic that is cause for many misconceptions. While sex is determined by biological factors, gender is impacted by surrounding culture.
Gender is something that we witness on a daily basis, from advertisements to toys at fast food chains.

Feral Children are children that have been isolated most of their lives. Genie is a famous case of this, and is was researched greatly until her mother did not allow her therapist and doctors to help her anymore. This video shows how she acted in life and gives real footage of her life once she was found.
Gender vs. Sex is a common misunderstanding of many people. People do no realize the different meanings between the two simple words yet they hold great meanings that differ. This is a slide show I found that points out a lot of key points that make them different and explain deeper into the subject at matter.
Growing up children watch Disney movies, yet never thinking about how they are portraying gender. There are many examples of how Disney, the innocent movies have made gender so visable of the stereotypes.
There are many differences that are in our world today when it comes to females and males. Some are more dominate then others yet we are teaching the children of our future, the ways before they are even old enough to talk. Society wonders why we have the problems we have today, yet if we just look at our media it would help explain a lot of this.
