I found this article on the American Psychological Association’s website. It comments on the issue of gender differences, or lack there of. I thought this might be interesting to some. I found it to be of interest because it breaks many of the myths that have been believed to be associated with women and men. I know that I believed many of these traits to be true. They seemed to be natural traits of most men and women, but this article shows a different side to many of these traits, saying that most are not true and that a person’s characteristics are formed through culture and have almost nothing to do with gender. I find this a little hard to believe because it seems as though most men and women do carry some gender based traits. But perhaps those traits are merely just a product of the culture we have created. Perhaps in other cultures, traits between men and women are extremely different then what is typical here.
Hopefully this link works.
