Who does not love Disney, with movies for all boys and girls alike? From Cars and Big Hero 6 to Cinderella and Mulan people love these types of movies and want more and more of Disney.

Baby Alive! A toy that prepares young girls for motherhood! Gender roles in society are imposed upon us through many different ways such us what we are expected to wear and even how we are supposed to behave. Before being born, children are assigned a gender because of their sex and from there one their parents decide what their name will be, what colors they will wear, what toys they will like, etc. For female children, parents buy them toys that are assigned to their gender such as baby dolls.
In Maycomb, Scout is not the average girl. She is a tomboy, who loves overalls, playing with the boys, and fighting. During this time, women were supposed to act proper and wear dresses and not fight others; it was the unwritten code of women. On page 69, Jem declares that Scout is becoming more of a lady everyday. Although Scout denies it, she starts acting and dressing differently throughout the novel.
Most toddlers are given one of two categories of toys: those for boys and then those for girls. When parents see that their kids are born as boys then they will probably start buying them blocks, race cars, balls, and action figures while for their daughters they will lean towards dolls, baby strollers, crowns, and kitchen sets. At sight, these toys seem harmless and innocent; that is to say what is wrong with a little boy and girl playing with their cars and dolls; however, these toys are the just the beginning of their molding. These kids are slowly being molded into their respective gender role: which are behaviors learned by an individual as appropriate to their gender. For example, gender norms or roles for a girl would be that they’re supposed to be thin, passive, and submissive to males.
Basing actions off of perception extends far beyond the literary worlds created by McLiam Wilson and Phillips. In an experiment by Behm-Morawitz, Lewallen, and Miller, the researchers found that the actions perceived in reality TV shows had an effect on the attitudes and behaviors of young female viewers. Viewers who watched romance reality TV shows were more likely to hold egalitarian gender role beliefs, while watching makeover and docusoap reality TV programming increased the likelihood that viewers believed females to be socially aggressive, what researchers called “the mean girl stereotype.” This preliminary research suggests that the perception of gender and action on television can have an effect on individual’s behavior in their daily life. This shows that viewers may find acceptable forms of gender and behavior that significantly changes their own behavior. Again, they are modeling their behavior off of a perception that may or may not exist.
