The girl wishes for the qualities or privileges that the society attributes to men and despises women, including her own self. Generally, masculinity complex is not a reaction to biological “inferiority” or organ inferiority, rather it reacts to cultural and social inferiority forced upon women. However, some women see the femininity attached with pregnancy as undesirable and unconsciously rejects desire and potential to be a mother. She called this trend the flight from motherhood. One among the curious terms that Horney has put forward is what is called “womb envy”.
As children grow up, gender roles are enforced upon them by different agents of socialization such as teachers, parents and other authority figures in the attempts to define an ideal women whom is easy to please and not assertive resulting girls to develop a lower self-esteem compared to boys (Robert Brym, 2018, p. 53). Which can make women in the workplace dominated by men more vulnerable to verbal or sexual harassment (Robert Brym, 2018, p. 174). Further supporting male superiority in policing encourages the rate of sexual harassment against women. A study published in the journal of occupational health psychology found about 64% of policewomen have experienced sexual harassment at least once in their career from their peers, the women reported most common types of harassments were offensive remarks and comments about their bodies or appearance (Stans de Haas, 2009, p. 7). A recent survey of 4000 police officers in Canada found the stress of work-life balance is more substantial on policewomen than it is on male police officers.

You may believe you want your children to be raised in the right way, but I would argue that when you force gender roles on your kid, it causes them to grow up in the wrong way. Today, people still use offensive terms such as “f*ggot” in their everyday lives, but what exactly is wrong with being gay? Does it make you weak? Well, it, in fact, does not, but toxic masculinity makes it seem like it’s okay to say such words, when really it is negatively affecting other people. Similarly, “b*tch” is used when a woman might stand up for herself, which betrays the typical female gender role.
They blame it on the youthfulness and immaturity of the boys, but in reality, the schools are the ones telling the boys this, and we see examples of all ages in their society seeing women as sexual objects and inferiors. In conclusion, while focusing on differences in the treatment of the genders, we can see that women are objectified
Some people these days tend to not agree to whom they are sexually as they believe they are “born into the wrong bodies” hence behaving like the sex they choose and want to be. For example, a girl who feels like she is a boy but in the wrong body tends to start behaving like a boy just feel satisfy her conscience and same goes for the boys. The society can also play a major role in the sexuality of a person. For example, a girl born into a family of so many boys and being the only girl, might start behaving like a boy hence the phrase “tomboy”. The physical and emotional aspects of ones sexuality includes bonds between individuals that is expressed through profound feelings or physical manifestation of love, trust and care.
Females are highly vulnerable due to culture that indoctrinates male dominance. Cultural norms among South African youth allow the social position of a child to be insignificant. Children are socialised to have unquestionable respect towards their elders by use of harsh sanctions, which allows sexual abuse to occur easily even among teachers that obtain high positions of authority in a child’s life. The health of a victim is maintained but again psychological therapy is disregarded leading to substance abuse, suicide and repeated offenses. In order to prevent the sexual abuse of the youth it is imperative that laws implemented are followed with harsh punishment and the social position of the youth should also be
As children would grow up, physical appearance would be valued more over inner beauty causing bullying in schools and discriminating among others with low socioeconomic status. In addition, the story provides unequal freedom between men and women where women are trained to become good housewife and to please a man through her looks, and following with marriage. As oppose to men who make their own choices on life-partner, marriage and other important life-changing decisions. Throughout the story, the character of Cinderella is portrayed as a passive, vulnerable, and
Masculinity was the root purpose that as allowed male to constantly remind women that they are inferior to them. That they are not willing to give up that birthrate to be superior because for generations they were taught that men are the bread-winner and women are just seen house worker and mothers. Because of this stigma it has implanted a certain dominates that affect the way we view gender roles and expectations of those roles. That why when we view a playroom, young boy are seen as leader and girls are just following the leader. Those society roles soon translate in adolescence and caused to devalued and mistreat girls in general.
Not only do I think that the study of life is the most fascinating subject, but I also love that there are so many career options with a social aspect. Preferably, I would like to be working with patients directly. By working with people in the medical field, not only are you able to talk to patient directly, but you have the privilege of helping them. I know that choosing to be a biology major is the right decision for me. Through my classes in high school to my volunteering at the hospital, I know that biology is my
Men are not expected to cry and as a consequence of this stereotype, they learn to bottle up emotions at a young age, quickly losing a valuable outlet for coping with problems and paving the way for future mental health problems such as depression and anxiety caused by the building up of negative emotions. Female gender stereotyping is also potentially harmful and displays rarely obtainable images of an expected female body image causing 70% of adolescent girls in Australia to have body dissatisfaction. Body dissatisfaction is identified in the Mission Australia Youth Survey (2013) as one of the top ranked issue of concern for young people, this has to be changed .Negative gender stereotyping is one of the main factors influencing gendered body image and is fundamentally intertwined with the development of body images throughout the ages. The unrealistic body images portrayed by both genders in the media have long term impacts on an adolescent’s self-esteem and future, so take a long look at yourself in the mirror and learn to love what you
School dress codes can lead people to be embarrassed, lose self-esteem, violate people 's first amendment right of freedom of speech, and some dress codes are labeled as gender biased towards women. School dress codes can very easily harm a kids chance at being successful not only in school, but in future life as well, if they never feel comfortable in their own skin. If they can not show off who they truly are, then why do schools highlight the importance on a child 's social emotional learning, if they themselves are harming the kids. Although school dress codes do take away economic differences in school, does that qualify as a good enough reason to harm a child’s right of self-expression? I don’t believe, children need to be taught to share with people who they are and not be hiding behind a piece of clothing they were told to wear.
