We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. – Emma Watson

Usually, “male” values are the things you have to teach or encourage people to do, like bravery, or sacrifice, or stoicism, where the default – the easier thing – is to not do those things. Dedication and friendship are too basic for men, they code simply for person, although women get associated with them because… not much more is expected of women. It’s not that these values are inferior, it’s that no one needs to praise them. “I’m a good friend.” Of course you are, there’s no sacrifice involved… – TLP
