Gender Stereotypes

On 21st September Gurnoor K Behl @GurnoorKBehl conducted a tweetchat on ‘Everyday Gender Stereotypes’

The chat began with Gurnoor sharing a chart of the prevalent gender stereotypes and the traits associated with each, questioning the audience whether they adhere to any of those stereotypes. She started off with the first question on why gender stereotyping still occurs in the 21st century and what are the many ways in which people of all genders get stereotyped in society. She then asked the audience for their opinion on whether gender-based violence is the result of non-adherence to gender stereotypes in society to which many agreed that GBV is mainly a power issue that comes into play when societal norms are nor observed. The discussion then went on to the importance of addressing and breaking gender-stereotypes in the era post the reading down of Section 377 which now decriminalised gay sex. She ended the chat by asking the audience for their views and suggestions on create safe spaces in society in which people of all genders can co-exist.

Thank you for sharing this tweetchat! I am also curious to see how this affects transgender people and their communities. Since we live in such a binary world, taking on "hyper masculine" or "hype feminine" traits to feel comfortable in society would be understandable. Again, thank you for this link!
