If gender roles are artificial then wouldn't that extend to homosexuality as well?
What does homosexuality have to do with gender roles?
Males are still males and females are still females.

4. You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding.
It occurs to me that the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant and Solomon's Temple were all publicly funded.
15. You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried....

Surely you don't believe in socialism!
Look to your left. See the American lefties? Way beyond them, see a bunch of guys in toques and parkas? That's the Canadian Conservative Party.
Now get out your binoculars. Look way beyond them, and way beyond the guys who are beyond them and way beyond the guys who are way beyond those guys.
That's me waving.

The real question is why gender roles are something to look down on in straights, but something applauded in homosexuals. There seems to be some disparity.
Fixed gender roles - whether male or female, gay or straight - are looked down on. Allowing people to choose their own "role" - whether male or female, gay or straight - is applauded.
Any disparity would "seem" to be only in your mind.

But if it's nitty-gritty you want, then "gender" is only a literary term, not a biological term.
That should have been your first clue that we're not talking about biology.
(The fact that this is not a science forum should have been your zeroth clue.)

Sorry. I was unaware that males and females are not biological....
Then try to increase your awareness.
The discussion of gender roles in this topic is about sociology (and possibly psychology).
