How does the way society view gender roles and sexuality affect one's interpersonal (person to person, individual to individual) interactions in the world? How are our relationships
and daily encounters mediated by our identity?
Also known as sex role, gender role is a social role encompassing a lot of attitudes and behaviors that are considered appropriate, desirable or acceptable for a group of people considering their perceived or biological sex. Gender roles are personal and cultural and dictates how females and males speak, reason, interact or dress within the society context (Houghton,2016). Sexuality on the other hand is about sexual attractions, thoughts, behaviors and feelings towards other people. This paper intends to highlight the differences between gender roles and sexuality, and how the two concepts impact on individual development and personal esteem on its later stages.
