Consider your own gender (female ). What do you think it means to be that gender (female) ? Have you always known how a woman or a man should act or what they should do or be? While you were growing up (early childhood through adolescence), did you ever feel conflicted about how you thought you should act as a male or a female and how you wanted to act (or what you should do or be)? If so, how did you deal with the conflict(s)?
