            What factors influence gender roles?.
             "It's natural for her to act that way", I think not.
             to be accepted as natural they would have to be born that way. Unfortunately, many of the.
             behaviors that are seen in men and women are the results of continuous influences they have.
             been exposed to throughout their lives. Many roles determine how a person might act into.
             adulthood. These influences come from many different places such as the family, toys, and the.
             differences of responsibility given to the child.

             to describe him range from handsome to brave and strong. Whereas if it is a girl, she is.
