During this time in Sicily I have thought alot about gender roles, also because they are so strict and clear here in Sicily. Men do this and women do that, and that is it! Everything else is against the God given natural laws. I believed in gender roles to, but in the Swedish gender roles that differs so much from Sicilys gender roles and also in Sweden it was said that these?are nature given roles, so natures atomics and molecyles seems to be different?depending on where you are?in the world, like in Thailand where the woman has the responsability to provide for the family.
In Sweden I am a regular Swedish business woman. I can take care of myself, earn my own money, do my own matters, can change a lamp, paint a wall, and like many women also change a tire. In Sicily a woman is not supposed to know these male things like renorvate a home, change a tire or solve a problem, so here I am seen as very different, more male like,?and also in work they say many times that she works like a man, what that is supposed to mean I still do not know.

What is also very interesting to see is that?most of?the prejudices against women in Sweden, I actually see in men here in Italy. Now I say Italy because I lived in Rome before and it does not differ much. The female gender role in Sicily I still have to get some kind of a title on, because I have never met anything like this before.?It is a little bit similar to the christian gender role teaching I?grew up with, but that was the swedish version of it.?Then I as a swedish woman live up to all prejudices about men in Sicily. But in Sweden I am a regular woman. Got it? LOL.

Therefore I have stopped believing in gender roles. Why genders are so regulated I have a quite good hint of, but that goes under my own self studies and opinions.
Also see that talking about these things opens alot of nervousness, because people live their lives through these roles.


Under denna tid p? Sicilien har jag t?nkt mycket?p? k?nsroller, ocks? eftersom de ?r s? str?nga och tydliga h?r p? Sicilien. M?n g?r detta och kvinnor g?r det andra, och s? ?r det!?Allting annat ?r mot Guds givna naturlagar. Jag trodde ocks? p? k?nsroller, men i de svenska k?nsrollerna som skiljer sig s? mycket fr?n Siciliens k?nsroller och ?ven i Sverige sades det att dessa ?r naturgivna roller, s? naturens atomer och molekyler verkar vara olika beroende p? var du befinner dig v?rlden, som i Thailand d?r kvinnan har ansvaret f?r att f?rs?rja familjen.
I Sverige ?r jag en?vanlig svensk aff?rskvinna. Jag kan ta hand om mig sj?lv, tj?na mina egna pengar, g?ra mina egna ?renden, kan?byta en lampa, m?la en v?gg, och som m?nga kvinnor ocks? byta d?ck. P? Sicilien ska en kvinna inte veta?dessa manliga saker som renorvera ett hem, byta d?ck eller l?sa ett problem, s? h?r ses?jag som mycket annorlunda, mer manshaftig, och ?ven i arbetet s?ger de m?nga g?nger att hon jobbar?som en man, vad det ?r t?nkt att betyda jag vet fortfarande inte.

Vad som ocks? ?r mycket intressant att se ?r att?de flesta?f?rdomarna?emot kvinnor i Sverige, ser jag faktiskt hos m?n h?r i Italien. Nu s?ger jag Italien eftersom jag bodde i Rom innan och det skiljer sig inte mycket. Den kvinnliga k?nsrollen p? Sicilien m?ste jag fortfarande f? en titel p?, eftersom jag aldrig har?st?tt p??n?got liknande f?rut. Det ?r lite liknande den kristna k?nsrollsundervisningen jag v?xte upp med, men det var den svenska versionen. Sen?jag som svensk kvinna lever upp till alla f?rdomar om m?n?p? Sicilien. Men i Sverige ?r jag en vanlig kvinna. Hajjade du? LOL.

D?rf?r har jag slutat tro p? k?nsroller. Varf?r k?nen ?r s? reglerade har jag en ganska bra ledtr?d p?, men som g?r under mina egna sj?lvstudier och ?sikter.
Ser ?ven att tala om dessa saker ?ppnar mycket nervositet, eftersom m?nniskor lever sina liv genom dessa roller.
