Rigid Sex Roles

Don't act regal, genders are equal!

By Jonathan Padrazo

What are rigid sex roles?

When rigid sex roles are incorporated into a relationship, the abuser sees the opposite sex as inferior . The abuser may "assert their dominance" and try to make you believe that they are better than you because of their gender. The abuser may also believe that their significant other is unable to have their own identity.

Is the abuser always male?

This, like in all relationships, is not true. It is true that most incidents do occur with men, but that certainly doesn't mean that women can't abuse this way. Sex roles are commonly associated with stereotyping, and their are plenty against both men and women.
