The Buddha's instruction is that gender roles must be overcome:
Not really. The quote made is for higher practise. Any person engaging in the act of sexual intercourse is engaging in gender roles. In the ordinary world, there are gender roles.

In the monastery there are also gender roles, such as the improperness of a monk to receive teachings from a nun.
