Children Are Socialised Into Gender¶

Psychology (Humanities), 1981

Girls only like dolls because, society.

The first attempt to definitely codify nurture-essentialism as a basis for social engineering was made by dating-failure and psychologist Sandra Bern in 1981 with her proposed Gender Schema Theory on sex-typing. Unfortunately, Bern based the entire thing on the memorisation of words and ignored the basic scientific fact that infants unexposed to social influence display gendered behaviour. Sad.
