This article throughly identifies streotypes and as explained in the article stereotypes are not always negitive. The “traditional” men and women stereotypes explained in this articles have changed over times women are also working to provide for thier families and not all women marry and have children the single mothers and also fathers are at a all time high i guess that was back in the simplier days before women got used to being independant instead of marrying having kids and being stay at home moms females are getting jobs and pulling in just as much money as the males

this article expresses how stereotyping starts as an infant which i never thought about but it is true when i found out i was having a little girl me and my mom went out and brought everything pink purple or princess. but as she got older which she is now 6 years old i let her choose her own toys and while she is a girly girl she also likes boyish things so she has cars and spiderman in her room that she picked out herself i never tried to push girly things on her i let her choose her own stuff some days she might want to wear some tennis shoes and some jeans the next day she would wear ballet slippers and a skirt.
