Women 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.
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 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.
I know there is a fight for equality going on and it's been that way for years but I believe gender roles are important.
The reason I believe that is because it's helpful to young mind's to understand that their mother or father is in charge of certain things in life and have different roles.
Women are able to do anything men are but women have to carry and birth children in our fight for equal rights we are better of not denying facts which can lead to more problems later on.
Yes, gender roles are important to society. Gender is a biological and social component of our species and yes its roles can be very important. It wouldn't be such a sensitive issue if it wasn't important. But having said that, roles are not absolute. Sometimes women fill traditional men's roles and vice versa and that's actually normally because it's diversity and variation in our species which makes us adaptable and successful.
I definitely believe that gender roles are important to society. I think there's a place for men and women's jobs and ideals. Men used to be expected to work and the women care for the kids at home. I still believe this to be true if the ability is there. If the man has the higher paying job, he should provide while the wife takes care of the household.
It is not a question of opportunity or recognition of each genders power but more of one that would upset many neutral and passive daily activities/structures. For example, a separation of male female toilets to product advertising. Furthermore I personally feel that although gender roles creates some disadvantages for the females, it comes forth in another form in males, so this inequality in fact is not fully true, there are equal opportunities/disadvantages for both sexes but in different areas.
There is biblical proof that God wants gender roles to be enforced.
"Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husband at home. For it is disgraceful for women to speak in the churches" 1st Corinthians 33b-35.
I say yes because gender seperates men from women. Everything in the world helps support or sustain life. Women are seen in society as being weaker then men, hence soft power in politics. Seeing a women as president of the US would be a bizzare sight as would a male giving birth to a child
Men and woman were created in distinct ways, men are physically stronger , therefore in a way they are seen as the leaders . Women are mentally stronger and are meant to guide the men. Men and woman were created to work together and provide balance in the world . Gender roles should not matter because we're equal and we need one another to guide each other through whatever problems we face.
I agree with this argument because gender is important based on what you do and what you stand for. People are able to explain why they're able to handle responsibilities and provide for their actual needs in life. If gender roles weren't important, I don't understand how people become stronger to help their minds to succeed.
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.
I was researching the web and I found this fact the Dorothy B., "By 2050, the woman in society will be higher 47% in work field then in 1950 which was in 34%." So, basically that is saying more women are going to be in the work field then there was in the 1950. I was reading a book called, "The House on Mango Street" and the gender roles were engage where the men had the power and the women were the cleaners and the people that do everything in the household. They can't the education they want to get but the men are the only ones that can. But, we have overcome that where the woman can get the education they want and get high paying jobs when the men in that book were the only person to could have the high paying jobs. Roles are important if you are in team like in math. Math, your teacher will pair teams up with different students will assign team work and each person picks their role on the team. To me, roles are important in different classes in school not society. We need to share the roles in society not give separate roles to different genders. So, that is my case about gender roles.
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.
According to Rainbow.Org 68.7% of today's families are non-traditional, because of this, I think it is more difficult to have gender rolls in today's society. In the home today moms are dads and in some homes dads are moms. It is also becoming more accepted to have two moms and in others two dads. In regards to work, so many jobs are on the Internet today you are unaware of the gender of the person you are working with. So I don't think gender is that important in our society today.
I believe gender roles are not important to society as once thought . Just because your gender, doesn't mean that you should have someone else making you decisions for you, without your say. Imagine if everyday you parents told you what to where, who to be friends with, and even who to marry. Just because your a women, your expected to stay home and sacrifice in the long run what is your health and happiness. While since men are the " money makers" they are suppose to get the royal treatment. I know I would not want to do that just to get beat in return. How many girls do you know that would hate staying at home cooking, cleaning and sewing? How many guys do you know that like cooking or sewing? It's not equal. It's like gender segregation. It's a old ideal that I believe is flat out wrong.
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.
I think that gender roles are not needed in this day and age. My belief is that everyone has their role and society and should not and cannot be blocked by gender, this goes for bother sexes. Think about a single parents, they have to take on both kinds of "gender roles". The old fashioned mother stays home and takes care of house and children as well as the macho man bringing home the bacon. Gender roles also limit the dreams of women and men alike, such as men who want to be dancers, women who want to be successful in the world of business, and homosexuals. I believe that in this world of sprouting equality for all, gender roles should absolutely be encompassed. No one should be tethered down to the rope of tradition, it is the time to embrace equality with open arms.
I do not think that it matters weather a women or a man is in charge. We are talking about jobs, we are not talking about wrestling. Women can do just as good of job when there is an objective. So could men, I am not siding with who is better, I am just saying that women shouldn't be treated any different. Yes, a man is suppose to go out and take care of the family, but what happens if you have a single mom. I bet she does a pretty great job of taking care of you. You don't have a choice who takes care of you and you will never know any different.
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 yours?
Everybody needs more than one role in the world. The individual need more freedom then what they have and to choose their own roles in society. Woman can do some things men can do like mow the lawn or be truck drivers and also make pottery and have a job. Mom stays home and do the house work on her day off. And when the husband has a day off he will stay home and do lawn work or wash the cars. Some times in the Sioux tribe the woman has to stay and pick the barriers and the branches to make a fire.
