Some boys actually like to play with girls. The only problem is that a lot of girls are not as competitive as most boys for example: I am in a competitive gym class, when we play sports most girls stand around and do anything. Of course some girls actually and they do just fine, is just the girls actually trying. Also they are some sports and activities in High Schools that are gender neutral such as: pom poms, badminton, R.O.T.C and cheerleading. In conclusion I do not necessary agree that boys are being raised wrong.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this dress code has nothing to do with clothes.” “It wasn’t about keeping teenagers from wearing whatever they wanted to defy authority or to fit in. It was about teaching young women to be
Every girl is built differently with various proportions: small, medium, and large do not fit everyone the same. Teachers are wasting their time correcting students on their clothing to make sure they are wearing the correct clothing. An un-tucked shirt or empty belt loops should not be seen as drastic problems. Students go to school to gain an education not to be pointed out on what they are wearing. Constantly we as students are told to dress for success, with zero self expression despite the fact that one day when we go out into the real world, there will never be one person
But, I also love fashion, shopping for clothes, draw, and listen to pop or female centered music. I consider myself to be a feminist in many ways. For example, I recently begun to realize that most of what I perceive to be feminine, and acceptable behaviors for a female has been shaped by my own surroundings. I grew up with parents that carried a combination of some religious beliefs of Catholicism, along with a mix of liberal politics. I am very lucky that my parents emphasized the importance of education, having goals, and achieving them.
Boys are learning from their social experience at school that it is normal to view woman as sexual objects. Sexist dress codes are teaching the susceptible young boys that it is the woman’s job to cover up as to not promote a sexual environment because men cannot be expected to control themselves around females who choose to show skin. Allowing this environment within schools enroots rape culture further into our society as Laura Bates pointed out. This notion also relates to Mead’s fourth point in his theory, “seeking meaning leads us to imagine the intention of others”, the belief that we know what someone’s intentions are based on their actions. When dress codes are created because male students and faculty are distracted by a female’s clothing choice, we are assuming that girls are exposing their backs, shoulders or other body parts, with the hope of receiving sexual attention.
I was always different when I was younger, I would play with the boys and even race them. I was even told I couldn't play or I would lose because I was a girl. When I would want to do activities that are normally played by boys, they would tell me to "go play with your dolls." Wonder woman had a similar situation. The bad guys would always underestimate wonder woman because she was a female and they considered her weak.
The world just did not have expectations for men, there were women expectations of that woman took care of the house, like cook, clean, look after the children, serve food after their partner came back from work. Women have been portrayed to be weak, as men have been proven to be more masculine and having those strong characteristics.
