sex-typed If certain attributes or pursuits are considered appropriate only for one sex then they are sex-typed. For example, computing science is becoming increasingly sex-typed, with few women entering the profession. In general, sex-typed behaviour is becoming less rigid, so that (for example) it is no longer considered unmanly to cry.
