The moment someone declares, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" the biological make up of that child isn't the only thing established - a process of gendering begins and continues throughout that person's life.
One aspect of that process is how we learn to communicate. Based on the premise that males and females learn different ways to relate, this program investigates how communication styles fall onto a continuum of what society deems as masculine and feminine and what it means to deviate from the norm.
