Language is essential to culture, development and identity. It is in defining identity that we find the greatest paradox — language is used to unite communities, and also to create divides, the most underrated of which is that between the different genders. Unconsciously we have accepted the segregation between genders reinforced through language. Societal norms define people as either male or female and definitely heterosexual.

Asian American Women And Racialized Femininities
According to Pyke and Johnson , Asian American girls feel that they behave differently, depending on if they are with Asian Americans or with non-Asian Americans. It is because white society has created stereotypes of Asian Americans connoting that whites are more egalitarian than Asians, and has expected Asian Americans to act in a certain way, which affects how Asian Americans think about themselves. Therefore, they feel the necessity to differentiate their behavior, depending on if they are with Asian Americans or they are with non-Asian Americans. Because of the stereotypes, they feel like they are expected to act that way by both Asian Americans and by non-Asian Americans. At the same time, Asian American girls think that Asian femininities are inferior to white femininities.
