Gender Role Stereotypes
The stereotypical feminine role includes traits such as gentleness, dependency, kindness, helpfulness, patience, and submissiveness.
The masculine gender-role stereotype is one of toughness, gentlemanliness, and protectiveness.
Females are generally seen as warm and emotional; males as independent, assertive, and competitive.
The stereotypical masculine role also imposes constraints on men. Men are expected to take the lead in bringing their partners to orgasm, but they should not ask their partners what they like because they are expected to be natural experts.
