    He's a lanky fellow, dark-haired and self-effacing. He uses sarcastic humor to hide his insecurity (no one's told him it doesn't work).

A friend, lover and slayer ette... He's Xander Harris. Good afternoon / morning Ms. Rostering and fellow students. As you can see, my speech is on Xander Harris. If you don't watch 'Buffy th...

    1,498 words
    "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer: A Gender Discussion" What is gender? The answer to that is not so simple. "Gender is what culture makes out of the 'raw material' of biological sex," (Unger and Crawford, 1995).
