Throughout human history the first question parents have asked at the birth of a child has been whether the child is a boy or a girl. The answer to this question impacts the socialization of that child for the rest of his or her life. For example, from birth children are assigned the colors of pink or blue and given specific gender related toys depending on their sex. Think about how you have been socialized in relation to sex and gender. Consider your parents’ and media’s influence over your life as a male or female as well as the broader impact of society on masculinity and femininity. Write an essay on the concepts of sex, gender and gender roles. First, explain the differences between sex and gender. Next, provide examples of how gender roles relate to your personal life.
