Self Reflections 26/9/11 Jonathan

1) My role as a male is based solely on my interests, therefore there are similar roles between male and female in my social circle.
2) The males usually do more of their own work to earn money for the family, but can sometimes help in household chores such as cooking, dishwashing, hanging clothes, etc. The females do more of the household chores but can also do their own work to earn money too, but less of the latter.
3) Males and females all have their own rights and also both genders can do household chores or other physical works, and there should not be much stereotyping according to genders.
4) The roles of both genders are similar and are based on an individual's interest rather than gender.


For last term's I&E assignment on push cart design, please do the peer assessment appraisal located at I&E Blog.

Self Reflection (Siah Wei)

1. There is not much difference between the males and females in my family or among those I know.

2. The male and female roles are the same, as my mother, who is not working now, worked back then.

3. Females are almost as capable as males, other than a slight difference in physical ability.

4. I think that there are no male roles or female roles but it just depends on the person's preference. It just so happens that most men prefer a certain job, therefore classifying it as a male job.

self-reflection (ODS)

I would see myself as a student. Not much of any gender differences, there is not much differences between me and my sibling. Perhaps only the job of the father.

All of us can do whatever there is, chores, outing with others.

Other than difference in physical appearance, females and males can definitely switch jobs. With the right emotions and mindset, those are possible.

There is no difference between both gender. Only thing that differs us is the culture and believes that influence us from the past.

Self-Reflections for CE Lesson (Tan Hao Ming)

1) In my family, I see myself as a young male / adult who needs to take care of his own siblings as well as to prevent any conflicts or arguments in the family. In school, I see myself as a student who has to take care of the other students and at the same time help them out with their homework.

2) The male roles in my house are to work as a driver and to study smartly. These are important roles for the family. Likewise, the female roles of my house is to do some housekeeping and settle all the other matters. Other male roles in my house is to take care of the family, and this is the same for the females. This is the point that is the same between the males and the females in my house. 

3) Males and females have almost the same roles in the society, and they are similar. Every human being can make a difference in the society, and hence both males and females can actually change the society, and even change the world.There is no restriction that males cannot work in a job more for females and females cannot work in a job more for males. Females do work, not just males, but the roles of different people under the same jobs are the same; they have to serve for the society.

4) For some of the males and females, they will have their natural and special abilities / skills, but abilities / skills can be developed and trained. Some females have such natural abilities / skills that they are able to take up certain jobs for females and maintain their jobs well. This is the same for males, some males have such natural and special abilities / skills that they are able to do well in their jobs.

Reminder: I will be collecting the class fund for September on 30 September 2011, this Friday.

Ray CE Lesson Thingy

1. Males and females have the same rights, the difference between them is a female can be pregnant while a male cannot. Other than that, males and females are the same. So males can do female work and females can do males' work. Males and females have the same amount of equality.

2.  Fathers can be househusband or a breadwinner, and mothers can be housewives or breadwinners too. There is no problem in doing these jobs.

Self Reflections ( TCY)

1. As a male, for some reason I am the one to ask people(inclusive of both genders) out for random things. Especially people NOT from sst.

2. Actually, there are no such thing as 'male' and 'female' in my household. Both my parents 'slack' on the basis of being the breadwinners.

3. Actually, other than body parts and different mentalities there are no differences.


Self Reflection (Ronak)

1) I help my dad and mom, but not work like household chores.

2) Both are the same as both my parents work, but naturally a male will be stronger than a female.

3) I believe if we set our mindset, we can imagine them the same but males are naturally stronger than female and but females have a more emotional side. No matter what, we should respect both sides.

4) Yes like for example, nurses or cricketers but it mainly matters on the skills a certain human being has wether it is male or female.

Self Reflections

I am only going to answer the last two questions because I find that there are no great differences between male and female roles. I won't class anything as a "male" duty or "female" duty.

Do you think that males and females are similar and different? In what ways are males and females similar and different? In your opinion, do you think that males can take on female roles and vice versa? Why? Why not?

I believe that all the roles of the males and females should be the same other than physical abilities such as giving birth and what not. Although society has defined "male" roles and "female" roles, I strongly oppose it. It is the duty of a person to define his roles in a community or a society. As it is, I personally, remain unaffected by this, especially because when I was in P5, A lot of my friends discouraged me from singing or performing because I was a guy and guys "couldn't" sing or perform.

Self Reflections for CE on 26 September 2011

1.Well, I find that usually the males dominate many things. Even simple things like who's idea to choose! 

2.The females in my house usually do more of the housework and stuff like that, whereas the males don't need to.

3.I think that they are both human beings, so they can do almost the same things. They only are different in terms of slight physical means.

Self Reflections(26/9)

As a male,I don't really see much difference in my family or social circle.

The roles or male and female in my house are similar as both my parents work.

Males and Females are very similar other than the fact that naturally,a man would be stronger physically then female.

Yes,other than most physical work,male can do female work and vice versa.

Some Reflection Thing

I think males and females should have the same role as we should not think them of weaker people. There are also weaker males and females can dominate them. Males are breadwinners in my house and females are housewifes

Self Reflection:Bevan Koo

1. I see myself as myself in my family and not differentiate male and female. In my family, both my parents and sister work and the male and female help out with the housework too.

2. The roles of female and male should be the same and not different. If you want to do something, do it even though it is dominated by other gender.

CE Reflection Brendon

1) A male would do things that are more physical demanding and more technical.

2) Male would do things like fixing things, carrying heavy things. Female would do things like taking care of children.

3) Males and females are actually the same, humans. They can all do whatever they want, and go into jobs that might not necessarily might be for their gender.
