To me Judith Butler is saying that there is already a existing idea or belief of gender roles and how we are supposed to act even before we are born. ” Nobody is really a gender from the start”. Our culture plays a huge role in defining our gender roles . But Butler says our actions determine who we are. According to Butler ” when we say gender is performed we usually mean that we’ve taken on a role or we’re acting in some way and that out acting or our role playing is crucial to the gender that we are and the gender that we present to the world.”

  1. I agree with your interpretation of what Judith Butler talks about. I feel that we are all falling into the same pattern of women from past generations because it is what we were taught from society.
