    It's alllll over the place and ALWAYS has. Now days it's all over the media and it's actually in just normal social interaction. It is even taught by your parents from birth (mom dressing you in "girl clothes" or telling you little rules on how you should interact based on the gender). Everyone sets gender roles wether we realize it or not. There's always certain things that would be "weird" for guys or girls to do or socially unacceptable.
