Gender Differences - Gender Differences I was surprised finding out that the topic for our paper was about our feelings of belonging to the other gender. I think the title of the book "Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus" by John Gray applies to how different men and women are in their attitudes, feelings and lifestyles. This experience for me will be enjoyable for me since I have never thought what it would be like to be a female and also to hopefully give me a better insight on a few questions that have interest me about women since I was a little kid....   [tags: essays papers] 1321 words

Religion And Gender - Religion and Gender A) St. Augustine was a very interesting man. I think, because he was such a sexual maniac in his earlier days before his conversion that he just totally stays away (and tells others to do the same) from everything sexual. He takes this to the extreme by basically saying that sexual intercourse (and intercourse ONLY) should only be done for the procreation of man.

Gender Bias in the English Language - Several studies have been investigating the differences between men and women's use of the English language. The problem with studies of this kind, according to Romaine (1999), is that the differences are taken for truths and no further investigations are made as to why these differences exist. The differences could be a reflection on gender issues in society, or even the cause of them. There is seemingly little argument against the fact that English is male-biased as a construction. When investigating male bias in the English language, a few factors should be taken into consideration: words that are in themselves discriminating, that women are not as visible in the language as men, the conn...   [tags: Language and Gender ]

Differentiating Between Sex and Gender - What differentiates one’s gender from one’s sex. Sex is biological while gender is social. In this sense, a person whose sex is female can have a male gender if some of the tasks she does are more attributed to males. But society has greatly erased this distinction and instead created gender differences that relate to one’s sex. While biological differences do not lead to gender differences, society has created these separate spheres to differentiate between who they consider as a male or a female and have carefully intertwined it in everyday life as seen with messages understood from the media, schools and a child’s first year along with each family’s struggle to attain the dream of an “ide...   [tags: Gender Roles in Society]

The Male Gender as a Performance in Beer Advertisements - Aaron Devor in, “Becoming Members of Society: Learning the Social Meanings of Gender,” argues that gender is a performance. He supports his argument by recognizing how society rewards, tolerates or punishes conformity to or divergence from social norms (widely accepted behaviors set by society). If a male fails to fall into his expected characterization of dominance and aggression or a female fails to act out in passivity and submission, they are at high risk of societal punishment. Michael Messner and Jeffrey Montez de Oca explain that contemporary beer ads represent a desirable male lifestyle to reaffirm masculinity in a time when men are insecure....   [tags: Advertisements, gender, ] 802 words

Gender Roles in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House - Henrik Ibsen’s famous play A Doll’s House was first published in 1879 and contains elements and characters that appear to support feminism, and drew attention from the women’s rights movement. However, Ibsen himself said that he was not a feminist; rather, his play is about the human nature in general, and is not specifically about women’s rights. Over the years, this was the view that most scholars used to interpret the play, but more recently scholars have produced an opposing argument. Margaret Stetz, one such scholar, writes that “To call Ibsen a feminist playwright or to describe A Doll’s House as a drama in favor of women’s rights is no longer controversial” (150)....   [tags: gender, nature, feminism, self, discovery]

Gender Expression and Social Norms - Around the world gender is genuinely seen as strictly male or female. If you step out of this “social norm,” you could be considered an outcast.
