or @thomaster is you know

Let's start off with a definition. Do you know what "gender typing" is?
 one year ago

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@thomaster You think those same purposes still apply today?
 one year ago

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No i said that was in the old days :P Today it's different
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0

InYourHead Group TitleBest 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.

@IxairaS Do you know what "gender typing" is?
 one year ago

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes its when you learn that you are a male or female
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0

 one year ago

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

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0

@InYourHead

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
We 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.
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I'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?
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Parents dress baby boys and baby girls in different ways.
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yep. 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.
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
That's right.
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Right. 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.
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Like you said.
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
We'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.
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Great. 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.
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
3. Reduce gender discrimination in the workforce.
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I have a question. Do you live in America?
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How 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?
 one year ago

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes 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.
 one year ago

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Alright.
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay. Good reason.
 one year ago

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I agree with your 1st and 3rd answers.
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I'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.
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
You 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.
 one year ago

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yea I meant B
 one year ago

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I would go with B too.
 one year ago

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay here is other 3
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But let's talk about #2 and #3.
 one year ago

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

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

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
my uncle has bipolar disorder
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It 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.
 one year ago

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

InYourHead Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Has 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.
 one year ago

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

IxairaS Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can we do a couple more?
 one year ago

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