This shows that the dating shows were designed to strike the audience with controversial moral values such as “materialism, narcissism and discrimination against the poor among China’s younger generations” (Wang, 2016), so that they can make profits from commercial sponsors. Since the television shows make influences on people, their values conveyed in the programs also impact social morality. If the directors of television shows only focus on the entertaining functions of television programs to make profits, the public’s morality will have danger to be lowered

Rap lyrics today is very degrading, the lyrics encourages a disrespectful response to our young women and sway our young men into domestic abuse, alcohol abuse and drug use. Most people, older men and women are totally against the derogatory language used in these lyrics. Armstrong (2001) conducted a content analysis of 490 rap songs from 1987 to 1993, in which 22% contained lyrics featuring violence against women including assault, rape and murder. His study classified rap songs into different categories in which rappers either pride themselves on sex acts appearing to harm women, justify other acts of violence, warn women who challenge male domination that they will be assaulted, and/or seem to invite male violence against women (Armstrong, 2001). Weitzer and Kubrin (2009) conducted a follow-up study analyzing the portrayal of women in 403 rap songs through a content analysis, in which themes of derogatory naming and shaming of women; sexual objectification of women; distrust of women; legitimation of violence against women; and celebration of prostitution and pimping appeared at the greatest frequency.
All this marching up and down and cheering and waving flags is simply sex gone sour.’” (Orwell 2.3.25). In this quote, Julia introduces the idea that the purpose of the anti-sex league is so that pent up sexual energy can be transferred into loving Big Brother. This is important because she brings a new idea to Winston and further pushes the reader to believe that Big Brother is bad. The reader can see how Julia’s ideas affect Winston when Orwell writes, “There was a direct intimate connection between chastity and political orthodoxy. For how could the fear, the hatred, and the lunatic credulity which the Party needed in its members be kept at the right pitch, except by bottling down some powerful instinct and
Her roles developed from just the sex object to eventually creating a type, ‘The Girl’ which Marilyn quickly became associated with. The roles that got her noticed by critics where roles playing sexual opportunists. She played Gold Diggers in The Asphalt Jungle, All About Eve, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How To Marry A Billionaire and in Niagara she played a sexual predator. In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes she played Lorelei Lee, which became her most famous role of a series that helped define Marilyn’s public persona. In these roles she played a woman who was selling sex, and thus she was figuratively selling sex as an actress.

Throughout the story, she is confronted by men who act like she is the “Hot Tamale” (Cofer 105) hispanic woman, which she describes as “a one-dimensional view that the media have found easy to promote” (Cofer, 105), and according to Looking in the Popular Culture Mirror’s “Sexy, Sassy, Spicy: The Portrayal of Latina Women in American Television” by April Hernandez, it has been a trope going back to the 1920s. She describes how latina women in early films were stereotyped as “sexual bombshells” and it persisted into the 21st Century media. The stereotype profoundly affected Cofer by making non-hispanic men a little too eager to talk to her: the man on the British bus sang to her without being asked. Her date to her first formal dance kisses her extremely hard and says “I thought you Latin girls were supposed to mature early.” (Cofer, 106) The stereotype did not make her think she had to act sexy, but made men come on to her in ways they “would not have been likely to regale a white woman with a dirty song in public.” (Cofer, 107) She was forced to endure public humiliations women of other ethnicities would not have endured, because the stereotype of the sexual Latina woman forced the men in her story to think she was a sexual object instead of a
It is described as a division of classifying objects or persons with cognitive bias or discrimination on or against something/somebody with behavioral bias (Fiske 2018: 1). This cognitive bias reveals the common pattern of stereotyping women to show interest in sexual objectification and attractiveness of male star players. Furthermore, the feminine image is represented as “sobbing, screaming and fainting, […] assumes that an uncontrollable erotic energy is sparked by the chance to see or touch a male idol” (Jenson qtd. in Pope 2010: 24), therefore, women are more trying to express themselves through cheering chants to encourage the team and to behave in typical feminine ways (2010: 24). Studies have shown that there are gender differences in attitudes and behavior, for instance: Men have other motivations to watch soccer, for example, they are more interested in discussing sports and are motivated by the need for self-esteem (Dietz-Uhler and Gantz and Wenner qtd.
In a magazine, you would see an edited version of that woman airbrushed, heavy photoshopping in order to sell the product by misleading the young girls making them believe that they need it in order to feel or to be beautiful and advertisers believe that thin models sell products. For almost a century, advertisers have appealed to and or contributed to women's insecurities in hopes of being able to sell them the product. An example of this is in 2009, an Olay ad for its ‘Definity Eye Cream’ showed a former model who was 62 years old, looking wrinkle-free and a whole lot younger than her age after using this Olay beauty product. Turns out the ads were retouched. Digitally altered spots were made in the ad, creating not only a bad misrepresentation of Olay products, but the ad's potentially gave a negative impact on people's body images(Sweney).
