Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Mixed up Masculine and Feminine Traits
The issue of whether gender is natural or acquired is a matter of traits: some men are manly by virtue of their individual personalities, and some women are more feminine than others by virtue of their individual personalities. It would be difficult to prove that gender roles have historically had nothing to do with the genders. It would seem easier to deduce that gender roles and gender have shaped each other. People are made up of varying traits, some male, some female, but for the most part traits are not gendered at all.
Masculine and feminine traits are mixed up in people in such a way that proves that the traits themselves are not strictly gendered. It would be ridiculous to say, for instance,...
The end:
.....glass to show how manly they are. However, for the most part people are made up of varying traits, some male, some female, but for the most part traits are not gendered at all. If society works with the normative because the utilitarianism way is how a social group will generally operate. For people without normative gender traits, the adventure of cohabitation or resistance awaits.
