This is irritating to many men because the modern media allows programs that depict men negatively to air on a regular basis, resulting in gender inequality in the media. This does not mean to depict more unintelligent women to “even the playing field”, but if more shows depicted intelligent men in addition to intelligent women, then it will be a good step for reducing gender inequality and the risk of
Overall, this task has helped me to understand that it would be hard to be openly gay, even if it’s just for a day. Some people have to live their lives being scrutinized by others just because they are different. This situation has shown me that its difficult to be who you are since others will tear you to pieces if you are different from the social “norms”. It gives me a slightly better understanding (I know I cannot fully understand what gay people go through) of the impact it has on your mind when you are
Reading such female demeaning comics will influence them in a very bad way and might make them think of women as their inferiors too. One of the causes of this is that the comic book industry is male dominated and the male to female ratio is huge. There is a definite need of female characters that are written by females and are shown as equals of men. The huge gender gap in the comic industry needs to be lessened. The founder of comic site of Legion of Leia, Jenna Buscher , recently did a kickstarter campaign for comic book anthology that would be centered around female characters and would be called Womanthology.
Many people would like to change their lifestyle and their tradition to look like other ones. But does that change make them more satisfied? it does not, because what will be the meaning of life if all people are the same? If one group of people is happy with their tradition, it does not mean other group will be happy as well if they just act them, because the different of conditions that in each group and that what is called the different of thoughts. Believing in the content of the TV shows and make it as people guidance will cause a lot of problems for people’ lifestyle.
According to The Wall Street Journal 88; The LGBT Community is the “dream market” because of its patronship, economic adaptability and their discretionary income.

How do gays and lesbians get differently treated in public television? Even though that gays and lesbians are both homosexual people, they are differently treated in the public television. The image created from the media changes the audience 's view on lesbians and gays in their everyday lives. The differences can be made very clear and this chapter is about the separation and pigeonholing of both gay and lesbian behaviour, social appearance and how they get represented in public television. Nevertheless, is it still a difference nowadays if the characters are either represented in a movie or in the general public television the audience watches in their everyday lives.
You can kind of see that he is a little possessive almost like he doesn’t like for either willow or Buffy to have any contact with any other guys which is kind of like a cross-role where instead of a girl being jealous of a guy it turns the gender roles around which is a very common thing in Buffy.

Throughout our lives, we gather inspiration from characters in films and TV shows, but imagine turning on your television one day only to find that there aren’t any characters that you can relate to. Unfortunately, this is a reality for transgendered men and women who are massively underrepresented in mainstream media.
