It's a million years of evolution. No amount of "culture" can make a man physically stronger than women. Sorry, bra-burners, it's evolution, plain and simple. It's been that way since Creation or the day we split off from the apes, which ever you believe, loooooong before any culture tried to make it that way.
All of those things, although evolution and genetics are pretty much the same thing in this regard.
Men have a biological imperative to mate with as many women as possible to ensure that their genes are passed on. The hormone that governs this is testosterone, and I would be surprised if there were not also a genetic element to this as well.
Women have a biological imperative to bear children, and to mate with the strongest male she can find, to ensure that her offspring have the best chance of surviving and thriving. I suppose that much of this behavior is governed by estrogen, but I could be wrong about that. I'm sure there is a genetic element to this as well.
Culture influences HOW males and females go about doing the above things. It governs how we dress, what behavior is acceptable in public, and how old we should be to engage in the above behaviors, to mention three. There are many more.
I believe genetics play a major role in the behavior of men/women..a man/women will surely be pre-disposed to certain behaviors because of their sex..certainly, as a child grows their environment is a major factor in how they behave...their culture, religion and traditions will of course shape their outlook and behavior but overall i would say genetics is most def the determining factor in certain behaviors in men/women
Culture. The Fa Fa fini culture in....the Polynesia islands, I believe.. They are men who are grown up to live the life of a woman, and 97% of young men's first sexual experience is with a Fa Fa fini. In fact, it's expected and shunned if you don't. They are not considered drags or transgender or any of that, but they are considered women due to the roles they play in society. So it's a matter of nurture and culture. We are bred to be of what we live.
