social/cultural expectations

particular sets of beliefs and attitudes as to how people should appear or behave, that differ between societies and cultures; what they perceived to be “expected”, and thus “normal”.

Examples include the social/cultural expectations of women to have children, or for individuals to be heterosexual rather than homosexual/bisexual+/asexual.

Defying such expectations may result in stigma and discrimination.
