Week Three: Sex and Gender
Sex and Gender
Gender (Culture): refers to the roles that people perform in their households and communities
and the values and attitudes that people have regarding men and women (cultural category)
women and men are products of their cultures definitions of how females and males should act
(*****very much so culturally directed)
- Roles we are expected to play because of their sex
- Dress, Speech, Activities
- CULTURALLY CONSTRUCTED
Gede is the age of haateistis pertaining to, and differentiating between masculinity

**Sex and Gender are different**
Genders relationship to sex is often close, but they are not bound together
Gender Roles: roles and practices that men and women tend to take based on their cultural
backgrounds
Refers to the roles we perform: if ou dot adhere to the roles of our geder, it is deeed
inappropriate. There are stereotypes behind the ways that females and males should live their
lives.
There is a way of learning how to be, through family, friends etc. We also learn how to behave
through narratives, folktales, and the media. Apparently when you change your gender roles
things do not go well.
Sex (nature): biological category females and males are born
