Gender roles have been established for a very long period of time. Gender roles are even laid out in the Bible. It is essential that we have these roles because men and women are different plain and simple. Women can do a number of things well that men couldn't at all. Look at child birth, that's a gender role that I don't think is going to change anytime soon. Women are tough enough to be able to give birth to a child. A man could never even fathom that Idea. There are roles men fit that women couldn't do as well as men either. Men are built to do more manual labor as opposed to women. These are just some of the definitive things about men and women that give me the idea that gender roles are very important to humanity and to our society.
Children develop their gender identity (knowing whether they are male or female) by the age of three. As preschoolers, they use some sexual stereotypes tohelp them differentiate between men and women--for example, to a preschooler, long hair may mean "female" and short hair, "male."
There are a few small oddities with Japanese gender roles. Sweets are considered unmanly. In order to make sweets manly, some bakeries have taken to making huge portion sizes so guys can feel less feminine about having a sweet tooth. This is an anime trope that is only partially true. Women are thought to like more elaborate and sweeter desserts than men.
Gender roles are very important to society. Each and every person born on this earth is born with a specific purpose. Gender roles as males and females are very important as each has a responsibility of its own. Both male and females have some responsibility that specifically only male can do and same is true with females. Without gender roles there will be chaos all around not knowing what to do and what is our responsibility.
Just as for men and boys, diagnosis is the starting point for providing appropriate support for women and girls on the autism spectrum. A timely diagnosis can avoid many of the difficulties they experience throughout their lives.
Gender roles are often something we don 8767 t think about. We are socialized as guys and gals to behave in certain ways and often don 8767 t realize it. Our media reflects these mores. Anime, like any other medium, reflects the expectations society has for its members. Aspects of anime, such as a girl cooking a bento for her favorite guy or guys acting pure and innocent, are a reflection of gender roles and expectations in Japanese society.
Another influence and reinforcement of gender roles comes from the toys children play with. During their infancy and toddlerhood, children get most of their toys from parents and other family members their choice of toys supportstheir own view of gender roles. For example, parents may give their little girl a doll to sleep with, while the boy gets a teddy bear. A grandparent may give a grandson a toy truck but never consider giving the same to a granddaughter. Such gifts set children up early on for the roles they are expected to play.
The Aftermath of Feminism: Gender, Culture and Social Change

I discuss this book in a review published in Feminism & Psychology
In gender roles they make women seem weak and only good for house work and looking pretty. When really we work hard and don't always look our best. They categorize men as controlling lazy and mean. Men are very supportive and hard working in reality. Now days a woman can do any job a man can and a man can do any job a woman can do. I think some roles are important but gender roles are not because they make everyone look bad when it would be easier to just share the roles and cooperate.
Without realising it, we all use language that is subtly ‘gender-coded’. Society has certain expectations of what men and women are like, and how they differ, and this seeps into the language we use. Think about “bossy” and “feisty”: we almost never use these words to describe men.
Post WWII Occupation abruptly changed the gender roles of Japan. Discrimination based on gender was forbidden by the Japanese Constitution. American attitudes about public displays of affection, American fashion and values changed attitudes of men and women toward each other and traditional roles. WWII essentially ended the social feudal system (Mclelland, 7565). Modern Japanese gender roles took on an odd mix of American views and traditional views during this time.
At The National Autistic Society's Lorna Wing Centre for Autism, emphasis is placed on the different manifestations of behaviour in autism as seen in women and girls compared with men and boys.
Everybody needs more than one role in the world. The individual need more freedom then what they have and to choose their own roles in society. Woman can do some things men can do like mow the lawn or be truck drivers and also make pottery and have a job. Mom stays home and do the house work on her day off. And when the husband has a day off he will stay home and do lawn work or wash the cars. Some times in the Sioux tribe the woman has to stay and pick the barriers and the branches to make a fire.
