Why do small children often stay away from the opposite gender and allow the opposite sex to do certain things? Society had it's say from the start, from choosing what is allowed and what is not. Making an overgeneralization about the characteristics of each gender is known as Gender Stereotyping. From birth, girls are seen as small and fragile while boys are seen as macho and tough. Once the gender is known to be a girl, they are thrown into a world of frilly objects and pink clothes and are often encouraged to play "house" because they were taught it was their role in society.

It makes Billie appear that much more threatening in the scene, almost as if the son has no option but to agree. The shot is not from the man’s point of view as he is present in the frame. Instead, the perspective feels as though it is from a young boy looking up at Billie, combined with her sense of authority in the scene it feels like she could be this imaginary child’s mother. It is reminiscent of Freud’s theory of fetishes, as only a child would have to look that much up at a grown woman and feel as though they had to obey some command. It is fetishized on the level of conscious because of Billie’s minimal clothing but subconsciously from this POV of a young boy.
A Flawed Beauty Pageant Today in society we see many new things, some being interested and some being not so interesting.

They get into very dangerous situations because they don’t have roles models to help them better their situations.
