Blog 1- Gilman
We are taught at a very young age the there is a difference among human beings that divides us all and that is the concept of race. Little boys are suppose to play with cars and young girls are suppose to play with dolls. According to normal society the color pink is designated for girls as blue is for boys. This gender concept is just as apparent today as it was in the past, and Gilman described that although men and women have biological differences through the theory of social Darwinism which explains gender differences as innate within us we are also taught to behave differently as well. Through social interaction people are taught what is acceptable behavior according to their gender. I thought it was interesting how she used the analogy of the corset choking a women ‘s waist after a while she becomes numb to the pain where it almost feels normal to her, can be compared to the social pressure for a women to uphold certain expectations that they don’t even notice what’s really going on.
