    I wouldn't recommend a society without gender roles. Males and Females are made with a purpose.. they both have different roles in nature. Like women care for offspring and man hunt and provide food for their family. But that was in the old days. Females are build different then males, males have more muscle mass to they can do more heavy work then females for example.

    Sex is biological. We are either born male, or female. It it really doesn't take much time or effort to learn this, you know? Because men and women have different bodies, and grow/develop in different ways. Gender is social, not biological. Gender is something that society teaches us. Our parents teach us whether our gender is male or female. Gender has a lot more to do with how people, in society, expect for us to behave.
