I am sure we have all experienced something along the lines much like the people in the PSA with not being in your “correct” gender norms. For example I knew many girls in high school that played softball but many others thought that was not a sport women should play. Another example is being in a situation when you tell a young boy not to be a “wimp”. We have all done it, but we are all more aware of the implications it can have later on.
In class we have been going over the idea of gender boxes in which the society around us puts us in. However, I do not think that people outside of taking a gender class realize this. I did a basic google search about breaking the gender norms and stumbled upon this wonderful PSA. Both men and women have these ideas of what society wants us to be, but it is up to us in order to break them. This video is a great example of the “Act Like a Man” Box others are always challenging each other or putting one another down and testing our own boxes.
