As we grow, we learn how to behave and act from those around us. Gender roles are based on norms and standards, which is created by the society. Cultures determines gender roles and what masculine and feminine is. Every culture has gender roles and they all have expectations for how women and men, should dress, behave, and look (Collins, 2014). Males are expected to be strong or masculine, confident and competitive; where females are expected to be more sensitive, supportive and submissive.
This contrast can be related to Theology of the Body because it explains what it really means to be a man and a woman. Theology of the Body also teaches us how we need to live our lives, as men and women, in the best way to glorify God. It is proven everyday that men and women are different. We differ not just by our physical features but by the way God made us too. God created both men and women to love one another.
Throughout history, we have seen the same stereotypes placed on gender, men should be strong and brave. They are the ones that support their families while women are the caregivers and the nurturers and handling the household. According to Emily Kane in “Glamour Babies” and “Little Toughies”, “gender is not a straightforward amplification of underling biological differences between male and females; rather, gender is constructed through social processes and enforced through social mechanisms.” With that being said Kane feels that we should not limit ourselves to those preconceived notions of what men and women can do. According to Kane, we should not believe that men and women could not develop certain mental or psychological attributes merely because of their sex. This mean that we do not have to fall into the trap of preconceived notions, such as; if we are born a girl we will love the color pink and do poorly in mathematics.
Eventually, both boys and girls will have to come together as a pair and cooperate to live in this world normally. As they come together, some couples start a family. The kids are now being raised in a world where mothers are doing more thing fathers once did and vise versa. I believe that men and women have major differences both physically and emotionally.The physical differences between men and women are easy to see.

Within modern day society males and females are given the same educational opportunities, the way in which these opportunities are taken is what determines how males and females ought to be treated and thought of by society. Throughout the last century, there has been the identification of superior intellectual levels between males and females, these levels of intelligence are connected to prestige, gender identification and academic success. In “Mind Over Muscle” by David Brooks, the age of information has incorporated the intellectual difference between the sexes by displaying women as more academically efficient than their male counterpart. Throughout history women have been view by society, well by men, as incompetent, uneducated individuals
Although there are examples of men being sex objects in advertisements, the cases are very rare and they are less than the amount of advertisements, which women are being sexualized in them. “Men's bodies are very rarely dismembered in ads, more than they used to be, but still it tends to come as a shock” (Kilbourne 4). Although there are sexualized men ads, women out rate men in sexualized advertisements. Women are more likely to be sexualized than men.

Moreover, these studies demonstrated the significance of communication between women and men. According to my other researches', genders are responsible in order to generate the way that lead to equal communication between them. As a result, there is need to investigate some factors for equal communication methods for both women and men because of considering communication as a one of the predominant factor for students' future career. Theory or Theoretical perspective This research is about the factors related to the varieties of gender communication among students at ADA University.

“Sex role” theory explains gender patterns by appealing to the social customs that define proper behaviour for women and for men. Applied to men, “sex role” theory emphasizes the way expectations about proper masculine behaviour are conveyed to boys as they grow up, by parents, teachers and the society.

The last element is “the need to be self-reliant and independent” wherein men believe that they can manage things on their own.
