Hi, need to submit a 1750 words essay on the topic Nature or Nurture.
In the article, “Why Boys Don’t play with Dolls”, Pollitt seeks to dismantle the stereotype that girls naturally like dolls, but boys don’t. and that boys naturally like trucks, while girls don’t. In this article, Pollitt argues that children’s behaviour can solely be accounted for by nurture that the children have gone through from their parents,

On the other hand, the women are unable to hate the Barbie doll. this is because hating the Barbie doll would mean that they hate all the good societal ideals represented by the Barbie doll. For this reason, Pollitt argued that all American women, including the feminists, find themselves giving their young girls Barbie dolls, the women are culturally and environmentally conditioned to view Barbie dolls as a feminine thing that should be given only to the girls. Pollitt also gave another example of boys and sports. In this example, Pollitt argues that, although, some women don’t like seeing their sons spending their free times watching sports, the women, however, do not stop their children from watching sports because they are culturally conditioned to see sports as a manly thing.
Pollitt goes on to argue that, it is not the children who freely chooses their playing
