Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or @thomaster is you know

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's start off with a definition. Do you know what "gender typing" is?

thomaster
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@thomaster You think those same purposes still apply today?

thomaster

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No i said that was in the old days :P Today it's different

InYourHead

thomaster

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are different opinions about that :P Look at this: http://www.debate.org/opinions/aregenderrolesimportanttosociety

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@IxairaS I don't know what I would write. I haven't considered sitting down and doing this activity myself. But since it's your homework, let's talk about what you would write.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@IxairaS Do you know what "gender typing" is?

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes its when you learn that you are a male or female

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, that's a start. How do we learn this?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In America, for example, what are the ways that our parents teach us that we are either male or female?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Threw are perants and people we see. Im not sure

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, are you American?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. Well do you know the difference between "gender" and "sex"?

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ill be right back my mother is telling me to do chores instead of school be back

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol. Alright. I'll come back later, to check on your reply.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, by the way, take a look at that link that thomaster posted, earlier. It can be very useful to your homework.

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay the different about gender and sex i don't know please explain?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sex 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.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are born either male or female. And that's our sex. It's just the way it is. But GENDER is something that has to be taught to us.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. So earlier, we were wondering....how do our parents teach us which gender we are?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll give one example. Toys. There's a difference between the kinds of toys that parents buy for girls, and the toys that parents buy for boys. You know how parents usually like to buy their boy children things like....toy trucks? Action figures? Toy guns? That kind of stuff?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, that's another example.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Parents dress baby boys and baby girls in different ways.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And they continue to dress them in different ways, as they're growing up.

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and when they get older they realize more how they should wear

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep. Because they see the differences in the way their friends dress. And when we go to clothing stores, there are men's sections, and women's sections.

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im a bit confused what to write it asks me what if parents ans schools discouraged gender typing. I dont undersatnd

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can think of one way that schools gender type. Sports.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do we see girls on school football teams?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about school wrestling teams?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but we should if girls wanted to be in them

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0girls can have their own division

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. With this homework assignment, we're trying to imagine a world where girls and boys can participate in any social activities that they want, and not feel weird.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We could have girls' football teams, as well as boys. Or, we could have sports teams with a mixture of boys and girls.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, the first question in the homework asks us to "discuss ways to prevent gender typing."

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We've already talked about how parents, and schools, gender type children. Remember? There are many ways that we could prevent gender typing. You've already given one good example: girls having their own division of every type of school sport.

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0prove that boys and girls can be equal to each other?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To show that they're both pretty much the same.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example..... if we wanted to prevent gender typing....would we let children wear different types of clothing?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes only if the person wanted and not be criticized

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. So we would give people more freedom about what they wanna wear. Is that what you're saying?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great. We now have two ways to prevent gender typing: 1. Let girls and boys play the same school sports. 2. Give everyone more freedom in what they want to wear.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Anything else you can think of?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um let people have equal jobs

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like for example letting woman go into combat if they choose too

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's pretty good.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03. Reduce gender discrimination in the workforce.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have a question. Do you live in America?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These days, woman are allowed to join and fight in the military. It's rather new, so I'm not sure if you've heard.

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have but in some part of the military they cant

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they don't allow woman to be in some operations

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. You bring up a good point.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now we've got...three ways to prevent gender typing.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about one very big way to prevent gender typing: Emotions. You know how in America, it's okay for girls to cry, and express their feelings? But when boys do it, it's considered weird? Unmasculine?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes thats good now i have to choose if i would recommend a world free of gender roles. I would recommend it because then everyone would be treated equal and not be punished for our gender and treated unequally for the way we look.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have we come up with a fourth reason to prevent gender typing?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no but i think 3 is good

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think we can make your reasoning a bit clearer. What do you mean when you say that we are "punished for our gender"?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0criticized by our gender

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we see a girl as a cop she would be criticized therefore punished.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, you mean criticized for behaving outside of our gender role?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you okay with what you have? Is there anything else you wanna add?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i think its very good :) Thanks for your help. Can you help me with a couple of multiple choice questions?

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here is 3 i aded my answer and what i think they are

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I agree with your 1st and 3rd answers.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm looking at the 2nd problem now. Avoidance isn't really the healthiest choice. One way or another, Devon needs to confront his emotions, and come to terms with how he feels about the divorce.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You already chose C. You think that Devon should keep his mind off of what is going on at home. What I'm saying is that it isn't the best choice. The best thing for Devon to do would be to confront his emotions. To actually find a way to sort out his feelings, and not avoid them.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would go with B too.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I agree with your first answer.

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But let's talk about #2 and #3.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know which mental disorder is all about....extreme happiness, paired together with extreme sadness?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's called "bipolar disorder," which is also "manicdepressive disorder."

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my uncle has bipolar disorder

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ive experinced it first hand too I understand it know

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you ever seen your uncle go through times when he's really depressed, and other times when he has a LOT of energy?

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh alright. So you do understand.

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes but that energy is turned into violence

IxairaS
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And i understand so 2 is bipolar and 3 i don't understand

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is. When bipolar people have a lot of energy, they tend to be very happy, but ALSO very irritable. They can get angry very quicklu.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is scary. Let's talk about #3. When we are angry, it is usually best to do things that DO NOT make us angrier.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Has anyone ever told you that when you're angry, you should punch a pillow, or scream into a pillow? Because that's really bad advice. Doing that makes us angrier. It feeds our anger.

InYourHead
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's right. A is correct. It would only make us angrier.

IxairaS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can we do a couple more?

InYourHead

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would you like to make a separate post for your other questions? Because this one is becoming very slow, because of all the comments.
