Gender in Society everyone does gender without thinking about it Judith Lorber Paradoxes of Gender p13 When I was young I did not think about my gender role I did not think about the day to day events in my life that effected my gender When I look back I can find so many instances of gender in my life So I am taking one of the smallest instances because of the many ways it relates to not only gender building but maintaining As a child I remember very cold winters in Omaha My sister and I loved to play outside in the snow So my parents bought us matching snowsuits They were pink with lavender trim My friend Charlie who lived up the street had a snowsuit too His was black and red with a logo of a racecar on the back As a child I never thought of the implications of my snowsuit It was functional and I suppose I thought the color pink was pretty at the time My room was pink my bike was pink and Barbies corvette was pink Why should it be any other way As I look back at the photographs of the three of us playing as children I see what implications the pink snowsuit had on my gender Not only that but how we played together All of us had hoods on our snowsuits to cover our ears With out the difference in the pink and black snowsuits you may have not been able to tell who the boy was and who the two girls were My long blonde hair was pulled back under the hood and all of us had childlike chubby faces with big smiles Charlie was always building big macho snow forts and my sister and I were making snow angels The snow angels were pretty and soft like the pink snowsuits The snow fort was supposed to be tough
