Origins: Physical differences
The difference in bodies translates into social inequalities where you are assigned different social roles based on these physical differences. The physical difference between men and women created a division in the public and private spheres. The social system is constructed and social interests are defined based on this original biological difference.
If you identify yourself as a man, think for a moment about the women in your life. If you identify as a woman, think about the men in your life.In what ways have your lives turned out differently? Think for a moment about the things you think would have turned out differently if you had been born with the opposite sex.
Pink and blue
Things that are attributed to a specific gender, such as clothing, sports, occupations and more, often differ from what was common (some) decades ago. 100 years ago, the color pink was not the typical color for baby girls, but vice versa. Gender norms change over the years and depend on culture and context.
