        when you see social standards and norms and such you can easily mix it up with your expectations for yourself. you can give yourself expectations and things just because it’s a social norm. that leaves no room for you to be creative and express yourself.

        Nice! (sad at the same time). I wonder how these norms even came about in the first place.. perhaps if I knew a little more on the human condition I’d understand.

        I feel like these were trends and things in little popular friend groups that slowly started to spread. Plus with the technological advances it made it easier for the norms to spread even further to places like other countries. Even at the time without computers and tablets people could use radios and TVs to spread trends and norms

    wow, that’s some deep thinking.
    i agree
    if you feel one way, but you know people will think strangely of it, you feel pressured to a different way. after a while you become used to it, ignore how you really should or want to react to something, social norms kind of changes your personality and makes you become someone else.

    Yeah, I think that society/culture influences our schemas as to how our genders ‘behave’. if you were to be born the opposite gender, you would most likely picture yourself acting/behaving/growing up differently (at least I would). so does this mean that the way you are acting now is really you? because if it was, and gender schemas did not influence your perception on yourself and others, wouldn’t you act and behave exactly the same way as the opposite gender? (note: this does not take into consideration any biological or hereditary factors)
