Gender Week "An expectation I don't like"

"Girls are bad at sports" - me
"Women are supposed to be beautiful" - L, Sweden
"Men can't have long hair" - M, Bolivia
"Women are submissive" - C, Norway
Me, throwing an idiotic gender expectation out
Let's talk about gender. Let's talk about how I'm supposed to be different than you because I'm born a different sex. Gender is not sex.

This week, we're organizing Gender Week at RCNUWC. If you want to take part, take a picture like the one above, trashing a stupid gender expectation. I'm so excited for everything that's going to happen, from swap-clothes-with-a-friend-dinner to Open Mic to Vagina Monologues. It's going to be great, I think, and so far people I never thought would show interest have, which makes it all the more interesting.

What gender expectation don't you like?
