    The quiet part is expected.

The gender stereotype for women is to be quiet, warm loving and selfless god forbid a loud, noisy cold calculating woman! Frigid b*tches I guess?
    Society wants this for young women------->

    And this for older women--------------->

    They want women to have opinions, cheerful, sunny, bubbly, let-me-take-care-of-you opinions.

    i am pretty sick about hearing about gender roles.
    i do think there are a lot of real differences between the genders, and a lot more arbitrary and imagined differences.
    but i am sick of people talking about them.
    i was going to write a more PC and more thoughtful post, but that is the way i feel.

    There don't seem to be any positions left to explore on this subject which haven't been done to death, whether pc or otherwise. But it's still a huge issue for a lot of people, being so central to one's sense of identity.
