Even though these girls might be on the same level as the boys who have been playing longer, these girls are still not treated fairly. Concerning the characters, “it implied that boys and girls aren’t equal.” The mention of “equality” shows the difference in perspective, to an outsider they are just characters on a screen but to the gamer it is so much more. Boys are considered to be better players by most people, but when a girl beats them it can be taken as a type of insult. “An increase in online harassment and threats toward some female.”

Moreover, a new theme emerged while observing the newborn boys’ section as multiple flirtatious phrases were seen in all three stores; phrases like “the man of your dreams,” “ladies’ man,” and “heartbreaker.” All these phrases Conclusion The clothing options I observed at Carter’s, Gymboree, and T. J. MAXX were all clearly reinforcing the same old gender norms in which girls are expected to be happy, cheerful, polite, and calm, while boys are expected to be assertive, loud, and wild. It is important to acknowledge the role that these clothing options play in instilling these gender norms into children in our society.
Hi Andrea, When I first read the poem I assumed it was talking about war because of the line “nightmare fighters.” I learned about war being harsh on soldiers and especially fallen ones but I never thought this would happen. I did not think that the soldiers did not care but they just need a way to get the body out fast for another solider to takeover the machine.

Growing up, we are surrounded by gender stereotypes. You walk into a Walmart, looking to buy your nephew a toy for his birthday. You approach two aisles: one full of action figures, dinky cars and monster trucks - the other, full of Barbies, dress-up clothes, and frilly stuffed animals. Societally labelled: “The Boys Aisle” and “The Girls Aisle”. If you bought your nephew a toy from the “Girls Aisle”, he would be shamed and mocked simply for having an interest outside of society 's norm.
Because it refers to why rape myth 's exist. In the video Like A Girl, girls and boys of all ages were asked to perform actions that are “like a girl.” They were asked to run, fight, and throw as demonstrated by the cast on how “like a girl”performance would look like or what it means to them. I felt like this video focused on gender stereotypes supporting the ideas that girls
The Girl is a poem that was written by Jamaica Kincaid in 1978. In the poem it talks about a parent telling a child what all to do, and how to do it. Some of the material discussed is how to wash the clothes, how to smile at someone you like, and how to set the table.

Girls are expected to live up to a standard set up by society on how to act and how to look while also keeping in mind that they must not be like “those girls” who let themselves be objectified. This thought process can be extremely confusing and ultimately lead the developing child in a frozen like state. As mentioned in Mary Pipher’s essay “Saplings in a Storm”, “Something dramatic happens to girls in early adolescence Just as planes and ships disappears mysteriously into the Bermuda Triangle, so do the selves of girls go down in droves.” (Dialogues P.344) As they mature, young women begin to experience objectification and sexualization when they are “asking for it” rather than wearing a skirt and “asking for it” rather than enjoying themselves with friends.
By including young girls in the video, Greenfield successfully develops a feeling of guilt within the audience. Not only does she include multiple adolescent girls, but she also includes teenagers and young adults in order to provide additional perspectives on the effects of “like a girl.” Many humans feel a great amount of tenderness and understanding for girls, especially those who are young and self-conscious; knowing this, Greenfield makes sure to include multiple clips from young girls in order to remind the audience of the effects of their actions and comments.

In other words, Greenfield reaches out to young girls in an attempt to build strength and convince them to continue doing what they love, despite what others say about
