Day 54 100 words 100 days Prompt- gender stereotypes

123 words. A collection of some stereotypes that I personally think the world could do without.

Strength and weakness do not depend on your gender, nor do how good or evil you are, or how smart or stupid.

And yes, males also deal with stereotypes. Stating that doesn’t make me any less of a feminist.

Men don’t cry. Women get hysterical.

You throw like a girl.

She’s just one of the guys = She is totally cool.

Boys don’t wear pink. Or any other interesting color or print. They only wear blues, drabs, camouflage, checks, stripes.

If you make yourself look pretty maybe some nice boy will like you. If not… well, doesn’t every girl dream of a big white wedding?

Oh, you have only two daughters? No son? *puppy dog sad face*

Only boys should have muscles. Girls with muscles are gross.

Anyway, why do you need to study? Your husband will be the one working.

You need to man up and get a job. You can’t let your wife work.

Hahahahahahaha! You got hit by a girl!
