If they let some girls play on boy teams then maybe we could have a better country because people are understanding how different people can get along just fine. I think children when children are young they are thought to play together but on the other hand, when we get older we try to ban this activity. I can see why people wouldn’t want girls and boys on the same team because a lot of boys and men are getting hurt from them playing sports and when it comes for a first girl to be on an all-boys team the nation gets all quiet because they don’t want to take a risk and play. I think that some girls are fit enough to play an all boy sport, but the thing that is holding us down is when we have all these all-girl schools and when we have all boy schools. They show kids that they should play with the other gender and they should not learn to be the first when it comes to doing something with the other gender.
She also realized that ‘people hated’ girls because they always assumed things because they did not have the capacity to understand the problems that were happening in the world. This force Scout to separate from the rest of girls because she didn't wanted to seem weak, instead she wanted to have freedom and independence and the only way she could do it was by acting and pretending to be like ‘a boy’. Scout adapts to the social norms that rule her behavior as a girl, realizing she will have
Because of that Alice started to suspect in her identity and personality. She forgot who she was, she was asking herself questions and could not explain others who is she. She was comparing herself with her friend, Marbel from class. Alice could not handle those changes, and her pool of tears indicates her emotional part, because she made an ocean of tears while crying, that symbolizes her emotions. There was a part when only her parts of body were growing, for example her head, then neck and that is indicating on that how teenagers are going trough puberty, and most of them do not like their bodies, they think lots of bad stuff about them selves, they are just not satisfied.
According to HealthyChildren.org, “most children's gender identity aligns with their biological sex. However, for some children, the match between biological sex and gender identity is not so clear.” People may view a certain person differently because the match between biological sex and gender identity is not so clear. With that, in the article “The Humiliating Practice of Sex-Testing Female Athletes”, it quotes “Sprinting, as women athletes’ strength and confidence grew, some observers began to wonder if fast, powerful athletes could even be women”. This is a great example of sexism, because people won’t accept the fact that some women can outperform men, and they are willing to stop them from doing what they’re good at because “women can’t be fast, powerful athletes.” An example of this is also in the article, “The Humiliating Practice of Sex-Testing Female athletes”, where Dutee Chand, an Indian professional sprinter, was called in to be “tested because her ‘physique’ seemed suspiciously masculine: Her muscles were too pronounced, her stride was too impressive for someone who was only five feet tall. Although Dutee Chand was just another woman who just happened to be better than others including male runners, her testosterone was in the ‘male range’.
In addition to this, Gender (Male/Female) as also limitation were in the researcher focused only on selected male and female students. Explanatory Theories of Harassment Gender (male/female) based public harassment. Bernard and Schaffer (1996) proposed the male/female-bonding theory, stating that men/women Bernard and Schaffer (1996) proposed the male/female-bonding theory, stating that men/women have expressed that harassment is “fun” and provides a feeling of camaraderie with other men/women. Further evidence comes from Gardner (1995), who found that some men/women seem to view harassment as playful. Additionally, gay men/women will sometimes harass to fit in, which may also 2 supports a male/female-bonding theory.
Both men and women are victims of this but research proves that when are those who are mostly affected. Women receive less recognition than men and are classified as weak. Women too are called “tomboy” for joining a stereotypical male’s sport or for joining any sport in general. With that said, it also prevents people from discovering their true passion for the fear of society’s perception. Since gender discrimination in sports foes not give men and women equal rights and opportunities, promoting sports without gender divisions will lessen this.
Many people have experienced what it is like to be so desirous to have something they make an awful decision based off of what they want so badly. In the short stories All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour inexperienced children react to their desire for something they don’t have. However, In All Summer in a Day the young ones are transformed into callous bullies, while in the meantime the kids in Zero Hour lose sight of what's important and team up with strangers. Overall these two stories by Ray Bradbury share an important theme. First of All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour there are poor decisions made due to their hunger for power, and things they did not have.
This book explores gender and gender stereotyping more overtly than any of the other books. An example of this is the relationship Esther Greenwood (the protagonist of the book) has with her ex-boyfriend Buddy Willard. Esther loses interest in him after finding out that he had lost his virginity, but still expected the women he marries to be a virgin. Esther saw the hypocrisy and the double standard – which is what girls should be taught to see. The book was written in the 1950’s but is still relevant today and questions the categorization of women into pure (the virgins) and not pure.
This is seen often in attempts to not seem arrogant or too full of themselves, or even too assertive. In a study conducted by Bearman, Korobov, and Thorne, this took form in assertions of incompetence and general ignorance claims (19). Young college aged women frequently used the phrase “I don’t know” interjected into sentences or blamed their desired outcome not happening on themselves, often stating helplessness or powerlessness to change situations. Since sexism disempowers women, women will then internalize the powerlessness and believe they are incompetent, especially in male dominated STEM fields. In the study, the usage of “I don’t know” was often said when there was nothing to be ignorant of, and was often used a filler in conversation.
The women use logos again to demonstrate how backwards the gender system has been by using charming girlish attitudes, a stark contrast to the real meaning of the video. The message is dark and directly says that sexual harassment is not a new idea and that women have been suffering for years. The SNL cast approached the video with the intention of calling out men for not being supporters and yet also being surprised when the women complain. The women bring up a common question that men ask while discussing sexual harassment: “why didn’t you say something, babygirl?” and follow the question with examples of times in history that women spoke up about inequality and were still silenced. Their examples include “witches” from the Salem Witch Trials, and marchers for the women’s right to vote.
These children find it difficult to find their place in society and are pressured to pick a single race to identify with but sometimes, neither races would accept them just because they’re not full of the race. For example, one of my classmates are multiple races and back in her hometown, they were racist towards her because she wasn 't just one race and her “friends” would make racist jokes towards her, you know just trying to be funny meanwhile it was hurting her feelings. That type of discrimination affects the children because when they receive racism, it is most likely that they are going to turn out to be just as racist because since they experienced racism, they 're most likely going to be racist towards the race that were racist towards them. Also, children will mimic what they see, so if they see people being racist towards each other they are going to act just like that. Lorde encourages people to speak out and take action to change the social conditions of our lives.
The article written by Jennifer Britz was a wakeup call to realize how equality among men and women still isn’t the way that it should be. She explained the process for accepting, rejecting, and wait listing into her college. She stated " The reality is that because young men are rarer, they 're more valued applicants.” (Britz) Mediocre men are chosen over talented women just to keep the numbers more even. In my history classes, my teachers always discussed how women were degraded and what hardships were dealt with to finally gain equal rights. Women are still dealing with sexism in wage and education.
