Today, we are living in a very complex social environment. In today’s society, people are stereotyped in many different ways depending which category an individual is located in. Haven’t you been stereotyped at some point in your life? Or you may have stereotyped someone without even noticing it. Stereotyping is actually more serious than we thought and it is becoming a major problem in our society today.
She is such a stereotypical female character in a negative way. Fitzgerald portrays her as such a pure, pretty, proper character, but she does not really have a personality. She is stereotypically a bad driver, obviously, because she is a woman, but when it comes to her personality she’s just another cookie cutter woman in the 1920’s. Males overlook her because she is a celebrity and obviously she can’t use her head, but they trust her for as long as they still find her interesting. Once they decide that she does not have much of a personality, they abandon her and find someone better.
Every human being is influenced by everyone else’s actions, how they act, react, and think. However, this society they are greatlyimpacted by holds them back to realize what is happening. Society is such a powerful thing in this world, it influences them to be better, but sometimes it influences them in a negative way. In conclusion, many people grew up in different environments they are all different from each other because they have experienced different things. They are all influenced by different things that’s how they become themselves.
Stereotypes have been around for decades, and are still prominent today. In today’s society, everybody stereotypes one another, but will not admit that they do. Stereotypes can either be positive or negative. Usually stereotypes are used in a negative approach and can be degrading to an individual. Misconceptions are also used by individuals and can be harmful and unreasonable.
Children who are different are constantly called horrible names and made fun of simply because they show their individuality. Non-conformist are heavily impacted by this because bullies often target individuals who are different from the average cookie cutter conformist you see on tv. We are much more vulnerable to the situation as an individual, thus forcing us to ‘surrender’ our personal style or tastes to our environs. Some conformists may think that we don’t have pressure on us to conform to societal standards. They say that they don’t bully, but even the most simple things such as trends or what we see on media can make others feels belittled.
We all have preconceived notions about the world, its individuals, and groups of people. Some of these thoughts are grounded in fact while other are gross overgeneralization that we have been conditioned to believe. Often, our ideas about the world come from perceived authority figures in our lives such as our parents or the media. This can be dangerous because these sources are often bias and believing in these biases often causes us to judge people without really knowing them. All throughout history and literature we see examples of how preconceived notions have done more harm than good.
Kitsch is typically seen as bad art or for those who like it to have bad taste, but it’s something I disagree with. Kitsch is something I grew up around. Kitsch tends to apply to one’s sweeter side; make you feel sentimental just as the article states it, “relies on codes and clichés that convert the higher emotions.” My mother’s home would not be home if it wasn’t for kitsch paintings or knick-knacks. She buys these things because they make her feel happy, and it the process makes the house seem warmer. Whether artists want to admit it or not, kitsch is everywhere.
It is nearly impossible to be confident in they way you look if you are constantly being told what you should look like. The beauty standards that societies try to commend are nearly impossible to completely obey. Women and men should not have to do certain thing or look a certain why to be beautiful. Figures C-1 and C-4 both want two different things that are related. That may sound confusing, but both ads are telling you to be society’s form of beauty while looking and acting two different
Misconceptions can be found all around including, in stores, schools, or parks; and where they are most commonly discovered is on stereotypes that are given to groups of individuals by society. Stereotypes which are truths or exaggerated truths about a group can grow and become untruths known as misconceptions. Many people stereotype other individuals due to their insufficient understanding about the group and their tendency of judging based off of appearance rather than what lies on the inside. However, when an individual assumes when little details about a group are displayed; misconceptions are made and can be passed down making it difficult to convince individuals that they are untrue. Misconceptions about athletes from a wide variety are very common one of which is about female runners.
This, however, is not at all what I am talking about. But I do understand where they get this impression. They get this mistaken impression because they are used to the carefully-spun language used by advertisers to seduce readers and viewers into buying products. When describing facial skin, glossy women's magazine advertisements or television commercials use words like "soft," "smooth," "silky," "creamy," and so on. This unconsciously implies that skin must be delicate to be beautiful.
