All of the lesser parts are still expected to be flawless, toned and tanned but the majority of what society expects of women comes from their legs and bust. Overall appearance is a lot more important to women than it is to men. This is due largely to the role society still places women in: a possession of the man, meant to make his life easier. They aren’t expected to be smart, outgoing, or contribute to society in any way, expect to be beautiful enough for a perfect, capable man to claim them so they can get married and have
Gender is put into “masculine” and “feminine” categories while sex is put into “male” and “female”categories. How do gender and sex contribute to the concepts and constructions of masculinity and femininity? Gender and sex have so much to do with masculinity and femininity.

The image is posed like that to show superiority and power that men supposedly have over women. This teaches women that they need to constantly dote on the man, whether he pays attention or not.
In my opinion, Americans tend to think that their appearance is everything and go to great measures to get their desired looks. I also believe that people in society are always trying too hard to make them self look like their ideal celebrity. I feel that men and women have different standards when it comes to appearance and how they view it. I also agree with Nancy Hellmich in her article, “Do Thin Models Warp Girls Body Image?” as she says that girls are becoming skinnier and skinnier as the years go by. I think as society tends to focus on their appearance more, it also becomes more dangerous.

Both genders have some similarities but not so much so that we can pass off as the opposite gender. Our feeling and reactions are what makes us a male or female. Hormones such as testosterone have some affect but our emotions largely make us who we
Females are seen as dependent on men to get by in life. Therefore, the fact that the title is Miss Independent shows that a different idea is going to be portrayed throughout the song. The very evident and obviously stated theme of female independence also follows the same contrast of the tittle. Though the theme contradicts the normal societal view on women the balance of ideas in this song is very one sided. Ne-Yo makes it very clear that the women he is in love with stole his heart by being herself and taking care of herself.
Discuss explanations of psychological androgyny and gender dysphoria Most boys develop a male gender identity and most girls develop a feminine gender identity. However this is not the case for all children. Androgyny refers to the coexistence of feminine and masculine characteristics in an individual. Bem argued against the traditional view that masculinity and femininity are two opposite ends of a single scale. She believed instead that an individual can show a mixture of feminine and masculine traits and that a balance of these characteristics is desirable and healthy within a personality.

The central theme of Herland is defining gender, the roles, how it is socially constructed, and how it is viewed as unchangeable by both genders. . In comparison to the women of their world, the men view the women of Herland to have masculine physical features: having short, functional hair and lacking curves. But in If He Hollers Let Him Go by Chester Himes, it is almost the complete opposite.
