The Inconsistency of Gender Stereotypes

http://www.cracked.com/article_19780_5-gender-stereotypes-that-used-to-be-exact-opposite.html

One begins to question how accurate certain stereotypes are especially after noting how they’ve evolved over time such to an effect that they’ve become the total opposite of what they used to be several years ago! Also some stereotypes that individuals of the 21st Century hold in regards to gender are actually  pretty recent despite the fact that most people hold these stereotypes to be centuries old and thus accurate. Perhaps this means that certain “rules” about gender characteristics are not set in stone. Society keeps changing the “rules.”  Perhaps this inconsistency of the “gender rules” means individuals of different sex identifications do not really have any “rules” to follow at all.
