Women do the majority of the housework even though they may have a job. This can range from taking care of the children, cooking and cleaning. However, this perception has drastically changed over the years.
2. Looking good
Women feel a need to always look their best. This includes dressing up, wearing make-up and having their hair done. Failure to do so results in being labeled as a tomboy. In reality, physical appearance is not a requirement to be considered beautiful.
3. Behaving prim and proper
Women are expected to be on their best behavior: saying the proper things along with exhibiting excellent etiquette. For example, burping in public is considered repulsive for women but socially acceptable for men.
During dramatic movies or stressful situations, women tend to shed a few tears. In general, they are more likely to openly show their emotions. Whether women are happy or distressed, people can often tell what’s going through their mind.
Women enjoy gossiping. They like to know what’s going on in everyone else’s life and keep themselves updated on current social events.
1. Physical strength
Men are physically stronger than women. Most men strive to have six-pack abs and toned muscles. In addition, they often spend their free time working out in the gym lifting weights or participating in sports.
2. Earning a higher income
Men tend to receive higher pay than women when they are performing the same tasks for the same job. In addition, men tend to get ahead faster in the work place especially in a male dominant work environment.
Men are good at fixing broken appliances or home maintenance. Likewise I have relied on my father rather than my mother if I break something. In addition, occupations like construction tend to be a male dominated field.
When men set their mind to something, they never back down from a challenge. They always strive to win and dominate each situation. They don’t like feeling weak or vulnerable because that tarnishes their masculine image.
Men feel that they are responsible to protect their loved ones, especially female companions. If they are unable to do so or are weaker than their spouse, people will question their masculinity.
