Gender roles which revolve around the conception of male and female characteristics are socially and culturally constructed. A characteristic embedded to one certain sex in a society may be embedded to the other sex in different society.

In terms of media, women are traditionally portrayed as passive, nurturing, gentle, cooperative, and sensitive, while men are traditionally portrayed as logical, competitive, independent, assertive, and dominant.

Using the method of qualitative descriptive, this study provides explanation on how male and female characteristics are described from the opposite viewpoint. Upon collecting the data, the process was followed by content analysis. The result shows that men are capable of expressing their emotions and feelings as well as understanding other peopleÔÇÖs feelings and emotions, value emotional connection with other people, are appreciative, and are capable of performing more than one task at a time besides being strong and dominant. However, men are described as verbally inexpressive and they are not good at making small talks. On the other hand, women are described as hard working, adventurous, and empowering. The traditional characteristic of women that is caring can also be found in Da Man.
