Devor claims that our gender is chosen something that we show with our behavior in social situations However after close observation it becomes apparent that in some circumstances the gender line is blurred and in others it is not So why the difference What makes people feel as though they must act one way in one situation and another in a different one Could someones gender role be determined by something as minute as circumstance or subculture In the first situation a school setting males and females tended to adhere to the traditional gender roles Body posture is the most noticeable difference between the two genders The males in the room make themselves very comfortableone sprawls on the couch and another twirls the cord of the mini-blind creating a bubble around him that no one can occupy unless they want to get beaten to death The males sit with their legs apart most of them looking very comfortable and looking around the room in a way that says I own this space Their belongings take up a lot of the table space expressing ownership in another way One sole male sits off to himself with his hands held close to his body but his legs crossed in a masculine way Another male stomps about the room noisily dragging chairs across the room and propping his feet on the table and counter The males stamp around the room gathering their things for class and noisily rustling 2 papersit doesnt matter who is studying They take up most of the resources of the room and they create the most noise as well The males put forth a clear idea that this room belongs to them and it is apparent that they want all the attention too The speech patterns also tell a story much like Devors idea of traditional gender behaviors The males in the room speak loudly and often They dominate the conversation
