Is there value in conformity to gender roles?

Background and context

Men and women frequently conform to certain roles and stereotypes. This, perhaps, begins with the colors blue and pink being traditionally prescribed to male and female infants respectively. It often continues with such things as make-up and lipstick for women and cut hair for men. Are such gender differences valuable in a modern culture and society?

Mutual attraction: Does gender conformity help reinforce attraction between sexes?

[Add New]

Pro

  • Gender conformity helps reinforce attraction between men and women. Gender conformity has evolved in a way that supports and stimulates greater attraction between different sexes. Female attire, for example, often accentuates certain female features that are particularly appealing to men, such as "curves". Male attire often accentuates broad-shoulders, which are an attractive feature to women seeking "strong" men. By supporting the mutual attraction between opposite sexes, gender conformity has a positive effect that benefits both straight women and men.
