Cultural signs and symbols, cultural framings of life and life meaning are not necessarily guided by scientific method and do not necessary respond to reason.

Well, maybe not necessarily, but science and reason certainly do help. There is research on culture and stereotypes and the impact they have. Claude Steele and Cordelia Fine are two excellent sources for this.
