Details: Gender typing is defined as the way in which people acquire “gender-appropriate” preferences, skills, personality attributes, behaviors, and self-concepts. Data have shown that gender typing can begin at a very young age, even in infancy. What effect does gender typing during early childhood have on attitude towards gender later in life? Please provide research to answer the following questions:

  • When parents or caregivers direct children away from toys that are associated with the opposite gender, what message is being sent?
  • If there is a message, do children take this message with them into teen years and adulthood?
  • Does gender typing result in gender discrimination and negative attitudes toward the opposite sex? Or toward homosexuality?
