The Americans, for instance, put children in separate beds, separate bedrooms and things like that. They are therefore able to grasp the concept of individualism early enough in life.

Over history, the rights of women has been something that needs to be fought for. Women are treated differently than men, they are not as appreciated as men are. Stereotypes say that men are better, men are stronger, their ability is better than women. People have grown to believe in this stereotype. Emma Watson is one of the most influential people because she is trying to break the stereotype of gender inequality by encouraging men to play an active role with women’s rights, by being a positive female role model, and breaking down traditional gender roles.

There is a specific focus on how gender stereotypes and sexist constructions are established within the context of the media or fashion industry, where a woman has to demonstrate masculine behaviors for reaching a senior or leadership position.

ENDER ROLES IN SOCIETY There has been a traditional belief that males are more likely to involve in powerful positions than women from the start of civilization. According to this belief, men’s and women’s roles have to be socially appropriate and they are expected to take part in certain areas.

Sexism and the enforcement of Gender role The belief of valuing males over females is the basis for sexism in modern society. Women are expected to display friendliness, passivity, and nurturing qualities if she is aggressive or assertive she may not be accepted or liked because she has contravened the society gender role whereas the male will be respected as he is strong and assertive.

They tell people how they are supposed to act, look, and even what one’s interests should be. (Amanda R. Hoiness) When people breach the stereotypes and mores associated with biased roles, they are considered to be odd or “other than normal”. Female athletes must balance gender roles. Because of this added pressure, female athletes show a higher amount of role conflict than male athletes. Conflict was also found to be more prevalent for female athletes participating in traditionally masculine sports such as baseball, football, soccer, hockey, and basketball (Amanda R. Hoiness).
The decision that the person makes to let society influence their gender identity, can influence their gender identity in a positive or negative light. This is in the form of social media; being magazines, the internet, and social sites. Society displays the stereotypical image of what a woman and man should look like and how he/she should behave. This stereotypical image of the “perfect” male or female influences the person to become something that they are not, or what the person thinks she/he should look like to become the “perfect” image.

AuthorLastName5 are done on early days of childhood especially when victims are unaware or incapable of defending themselves. Even in adulthood, one might find it difficult to live according to how they want and rather face the problem of having to conform to gender norms in place. It is for this reason that Spade calls out to trans politics institutions and organizations to extensively look for better ways of ensuring these individuals are properly treated from early on in life and be allowed to live according to how they want and not according to how laws and norms require.

However, many questions arise when we are talking about the children who may have to be tested to verify if they are carrying the gene. Is it safe to test a child who may or may not be able to handle the information? There are lots of benefits of having a genetic test, but the negative effects outweigh the benefit. I’m against genetic testing because it causes psychological distress and financial drawbacks while growing up and it can have traumatic effects on children. First of all, the main reason not to have a genetic test on children is because it can result in psychological and emotional impact on the child and their family.
Narratives can teach readers how to connect different stories by discovering the themes of each one.
