I think both, with genetics being strenuously and often negatively reinforced by culture.

"Must not cry" and "will not talk" are just as harmful to men as "will fail at math" and "weak" are to women.

Genetics. There is a different biological role, and from there starts all the differences in character of each sex.
The culture just make things worst. Almost any culture.
