Researchers have found that, during childhood:
A) girls' gender schemas are more rigid than boys' gender schemas.
B)when boys play with girls, the boys lose status.
C)boys like it when girls dress and behave like boys.
D)girls express stronger preferences for feminine toys than boys do for masculine toys.
I chose A, am I right?
Ugh! What kind of class are you taking that encourages such stereotyping?
Check your book for whatever it's author thinks is the "right" answer.
It is very frustaring Ms.Sue, I have read this book over and over, but based on the fact that I have a boy and a girl at home, this seems to be the right answer
You're probably right that A is the answer.
Since girls can dress like boys without sanction, but boys get sanctioned for dressing like girls, I would not choose A. I would prefer B.
I just looked it up in my book pg 546 the answer is B
