If you believe society causes gender roles then why do you think [so]?

Society may describe and encourage gender roles but it does not cause them. Both I and a host of evolutionary psychologists think that over the centuries both men and women have simply worked out a set of gender roles that tends to work best for both of them. Although that is and has always been in flux, men will always tend to express themselves in a masculine way because they are testosterone-driven, Women will always tend to express themselves in a feminine manner because they are estrogen-driven. Again, however, that behavior will be highly influenced by the ratio of androgen to estrogen receptors in the brain and the bodies ability to provide the correct hormone in sufficient amounts.
