Coates et al propose that the trauma led to a cross gender fantasy as a means of resolving the ensuing anxiety. Another psychosocial explanation is the effect of mother-son relationships. Stoller found that GID is often a result of distorted parent attitudes. He interviewed GID individuals and found that the majority displayed overly close mother-son relationships. Therefore, this may have led to greater female identification and confused gender identity.
Bussey came to this conclusion when he found that children imitate same sex models but do not imitate same sex models that are gender inappropriate. Gender roles are also affected by social influences like parents. Parents sometimes have strong opinions on the divides between genders which results in different reinforcements for different behaviours. For example, a mother may react negatively to their daughter playing with masculine toys but positively to their son playing with the same toys. Parental influence has strengths, for example there is a wealth of scientific evidence supporting it.
They can quickly fall behind from peers of the same age. They may find it difficult to interact and make friends with others who are more advanced. They may struggle with intellectual development memory and concentration. Delayed speech development A child who has limited or no speech could be a cause great concern. This would affect a child’s social and communication development as he/she would find it difficult to listen and speak to peers staff and carers this could also affect their behaviour possibly becoming frustrated and quite angry Whatever concern you have about a Childs development in any area, you should always share it with others.
For example, Antigone seems to be impervious toward Creon’s misogynistic ways; however, her sister, Ismene, is seen to be internalizing the idea that women are insignificant compared to men. We see the impact that this sexist culture has on Ismene when she tells Antigone, “We must remember that by birth we’re women, and, as such, we shouldn’t fight with men. Since those who rule are much more powerful, we must obey in this and in events which bring us even harsher agonies… Since I’m being compelled, I will obey those in control. That’s what I’m forced to do. It makes no sense to try to do too much” (77-85).
Another prospect is that in the lack of discrimination gender differences can appear. Men and women are clearly different from birth, but their differences in interests, talents, attitudes whether arising from birth or learning all plays a part in the big story. Pinker’s third thought behind women’s absence is the child-rearing idea. Women, who embrace most of the responsibility when it comes to raising children, cannot simply coexist with professions in the science field which are so demanding in time. Pinker concludes his commentary with psychologist Philip Tetlock’s argument dealing with taboo.
Mixed culture signals affect a women and the way they perceive society What would happen if stereotypes were always accurate? A baby born to a certain ethnicity would not have a choice, except to become part of the stereotype. There would not be equality or fairness with life styles that people choose and jobs would be limited to those who fit the stereotypical criteria. Judith Ortiz Cofer’s short story, “Myth of the Latin Woman” has come to shed light from her own experience based on how certain stereotypes correlate with certain ethnicities. That may potentially be untrue and may be harmful to someone’s wellbeing.
She is also to put her family's welfare before her own; be loving, compassionate, caring, nurturing, and sympathetic; and find time to be sexy and feel beautiful. The male stereotypic role is to be the financial provider. He is also to be assertive, competitive, independent, courageous, and career-focused; hold his emotions in check; and always initiate sex. I do not believe in this type of stereotype. I believe female and
Samuel Junior Moses Dr. John Frongillo Writing in literature Com 1102 04/23/2015 The Prevalence of Stereotyping Stereotyping is an overly simplified attitude people hold towards another person due to race, gender or ethnicity. Stereotyping affects us by allowing us to see what we expect to see, and we have a tendency to twist and distort the characteristics of others until it fits our ideas of a particular group stereotype. Sex, race, age, sexual orientation, religion, and physical ability are various categories which exist in stereotyping. The most prevalent and controversial forms are sex and race. In the story the “How to date a brown girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie)” by Junot Diaz, the narrator stereotypes girls base on gender,
Finally, Coontz brought forth if someone is not marrying for love but just for the status then what is the point of getting married. I do agree with her about this and also, the point about the media blowing the idea of happily ever after out of proportion by just believing that only true love will hold a marriage together that is false. True love can bring people together but would not keep them together, this is something that marriages cannot solely rely on it takes hard work and dedication to keep a marriage
Women during this time were only allowed to go so far and do so much without being restrained it seemed like. She doubts herself in letters she sends to her female friends who sympathize with her problems in choosing her partner for marriage. As a result to her resent of her thoughts about female powerlessness, and her outspoken thoughts of marriage. Virtue also resulted in achievement of morality, which was identified with marriage. Also Eliza resisted the sexual double-standard which I found really amazing.
