Of course they are. And of course it is! Nature and nurture are interwoven
far too closely for any of us to separate one from the other. My older
daughter went to an alternative school (not a democratic model, but plenty
progressive). Although she is the more traditionally "feminine" of my two
girls, she played a lot with boys. My younger one, the "tomboy", used to
insist on going to school in a dress so she could play "Princess"! Go
figure!
