There is a difference, however between being born a biological male or female and the experience of being ‘gendered’ of the experience and cultural practices of being a woman or a man on a given society. It can be argued that that there is nothing ‘normal’ or ‘natural’ about acting like a man or a woman. For example, it was considered manly in the middle ages for elite men to weep and swoon on a regular basis; by the the nineteeth century, the women were doing the weeping and swooning while the men were keeping a stiff upper lip. In some cultures, women are considered sexually assertive and men are expexted to be passive, and so on. Gender, then, is socially constructed, even if we accept the argument that gender is usually assigned on a biological basis.
