The purposes of this paper were to review the history of this distinction and to illustrate the varied and inconsistent ways in which these terms are used. Gender Roles. John Money’s (1972) theory was that once a biological male or female is born, social labeling and differential treatment of boys and girls interact with biological factors to steer development. The term ‘gender role’ was first coined by John Money in 1955 during the course of his study of intersex individuals to describe the manners in which these individuals express their status as a male or female, in a situation where no clear biological assignment exists. Historically, this distinction began with John Money and his colleagues in the 1950s (Money et al. ... Money reported that Brenda had adapted to the role of female and … 1985, p. 150).

David's life story is a lesson to all of us. It is commonly argued that biological differences between males and females determine gender by causing enduring differences in capabilities and dispositions. ; JOHN L. HAMPSON, M.D. He divided components constituting an individual sexual identity as; internal and external organs, gender identity, genes, hormones, and gender roles (Warnke 89).
