The Social Construction of Gender-Lorber

Leave a comment

This article discusses the way gender affects our social lives. It addresses how gender construction in our society is built up. The article is about the act of “gendering” and how we do it to each child before they’re even born.

I really love this article because I hate the way everyone forces their child’s gender on them. For instance, the moment a woman finds out she’s having a girl, she starts buying pink EVERYTHING! And in the same fashion, if she were to find out she’s having a boy, every outfit has a tractor, car, plane, or baseball on it. Who says that little girl won’t want to wear dresses with tractors or baseballs all over it?  I guess I just think it’s sorta close minded to think that just because your child’s a boy or girl it is going to wear, or like, certain things.
