Gender Roles debate

Topic: Are gender roles important to society?
Positions were created for a specific reasonWomen are nurturers
and men are protectors. If males and females move from the roles
that God has placed them in then we will end up with a society that
is chaotic. There is a reason why males are the head of the family
and women are the supporters of the males. Imagine what would
happen when we walk if both legs decided to go forward at the
same time? Clearly there would be no movement.
Gender roles can never be abolished as long as women and men
are biologically different. Men are biologically stronger, which
makes then feel like protecters. Women are the child-bearers, so
they will forever have the care-giving maternal instinct. In other
species, the men must prove themselves to be worthy of the
women, which is why male peacocks are given brighter feathers: to
impress the ladies. If you want to argue that our heightened
intelligence separates us from other species, we can still look at the
situations of today. Most women still want to be cared for by men
More cons than pros to gender roles
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.
Gender Doesn't Matter
Gender roles in society can limit people. In other societies,
women are unable to follow their dreams because of gender
roles. They need to stay home, cooking and cleaning, and
can't receive an education. Men are the ones who are
supposed to work and get an education to support the
family. Our society is much better at recognizing women and
men as being equal. Women don't need to marry and take
care of a house, and men don't need to support women.
Men and women are able to go to college and get an
education. People are not judged by their gender. They can
be known for who they are.
and most men still want to care for women. There are exceptions,
of course, as there is to everything. Society doesn't have to
recommend a boy becomes a nurse; if he wants to become one,
however, no one is stopping him.
It's in our nature.Both women and men are other capable of
achieving most tasks except of course, child birth. However..The
majority of women were born with the nature of being nurturing,
caring and domestically oriented. Men on the other hand, are more
focused on protecting and providing. This of course doesn't mean
that the roles shouldn't be switched, or women should stay at home
all day. It just explains why this had been the role structure for a
long period of time. It's what feels natural, and it's how we were
made to be, women were made to care for children give birth
etc...And men were build strong to provide for the family. I'm
grateful that in America women can choose to be what ever you
want to be and still be feminine. Gender roles may exist and are
natural but that doesn't mean you can't also have a job an succeed
as a person, not just as a woman.
The choice is yours
The people should not have to believe that everything in life is set in
stone for them. We all need to believe that our roles (what little we
have of them) should be of our own choosing. People need to live
with free choices, for without choices, we are without freedom. My
believe is that we need to make our own path of life, rather than go
down the beaten path all of us are expected to follow. To emulate
the words of Robert Frost: "I took the road less traveled by. And
that has made all the difference." The choice is all of ours, what's
Freedom of choice
Today, our roles in society are more lenient than that of the past.
Women are defined by who THEY are, not by who they are suppose
to be. Roles are determined by hard work and perseverance. We
can accomplish what ever we want to if we set our minds to it.
Today, women are capable of doing jobs that only men were
thought to be able to do. Jobs that include science exploration,
engineering, and business. Women are even joining the army! In a
world where the man has always been superior, women are
speaking out. They are saying, "No." For once, women are
supporting themselves and reaching their dreams. Today, everyone
can have the best of both roles and still be themselves.
