Nowadays, men and women are stereotyping themselves way too much. For example, let’s take the colors associated with both genders. Pink is directly associated to a girl and blue is directly associated to a guy. In my personal case, I have some male friends that like to wear pink shirts but they’re too shy to show it in public. Furthermore, I know quite a lot of girls that loves watching MMA but again they don’t want to show it publicly so they will not get judged... Stereotyping each other is just not beneficial for each side because people will not demonstrate their true personalities.
