I always love your answers! All very true!
peeples, Thanks for your wonderful compliment! :-)
This is really spot on. The gender indoctrination scenario and drama continues...Little girls are thoroughly indoctrinated into being wives and mothers from very early childhood, so sad indeed! Little boys are more encouraged to develop themselves!
I was raised that gardening was everyone's job who wanted to eat. I've not heard that gender opinion on gardening. Some people just love to garden! Or maybe I'm a tomboy? lol
Certainly do! Teen boys are encouraged to have more sexual license than teen girls in some societies and cultures. In some cultures and societies, teen girls have a more restrictive and prohibitive dating code!
The reason you hadn't thought of so-called "gender indoctrination" is because it's the same thing as letting boys be boys and girls be girls. The fact is the that only women can be mothers and men can be fathers...what's indoctrinating about that?
CalebSparks, You missed my point regarding "gender indoctrination". Boys are NOT encouraged to (pretend) to be "fathers or husbands" during their childhood! Girls on the other hand ARE encouraged to (pretend) to be "mothers and wives".
I believe my comments were directed toward BuffaloGal's response.
