Jesmond Neighbourhood centre fun day for many cultures, seen both inside and outside by reflection - dichotomy - very pervasive. Cultures and Gender and the break down of stereotypes is a work in progress but undermined in various ways.
Try to select an old greeting card and see that from even age one upwards the cards are categorized into male and female with all the usual topics that are supposedly associated with gender.
  Dichotomy-  look at toys, offerings for girls are typically small, sickly pink and coy and pretty useless- the same with girls clothing, kids clothing specifically targets gender.
 Another point is that of increasing our consumerism by needing two of everything.
