Lecture – February 17 gender expression – refers to all of the external characteristics and behaviors that are socially defined as either masculine or feminine, such as dress, grooming mannerisms, speech, patterns and social interactions Stereotypes About Boys  bigger, stronger  don’t cry as much  rough and tumble  like playing with trucks, balls, sports  misbehave more than girls Cognitive-Developmental Theory  explains how people organize and understand their perceptions of physical and social reality  these perceptions change from childhood as development proceeds  how people need to make order out of what is perceived and to make categories In an experiment, parents of newborns perceived boys as bigger, even though they were the same size as girls. Fathers’ perceptions of these infants were more extreme than mothers’ perceptions. Fathers of sons also judged their babies as better coordinated, more alert, stronger, and hardier than did fathers of daughters. Gender Schemas  associations and assumptions used to organize information related to gender by linking gender labels to object, traits, and behaviors cognitive development theory = object = ball = masculine gender schema = trait = healthy baby = boy Infant Boys (0-1 year) “Boys and girls cry equally often during infancy, but as development proceeds, boys cry less and less.” Social Learning Theory  conformity to gender is policed by a series of external reinforcements, either rewards or punishments
