(Baker 2005). However, using sexuality and pornography in mass media have many negative effects on individuals and society as well as those argued by women. There are lots of problems regarding the abuse of women and sexuality in the mass media, and they can affect both individuals and society.

We are saturated with messages propagated by mass media. Through this, it has the ability to be especially harmful when comparing gender, race and/or class on the grounds that it constructs negative perceptions of those involved. Furthermore, reinforcing them on a daily basis albeit through cinema or advertising. It offers the public a way to frame what subcultures do and proves to be notoriously problematic because they often lack the state of being precise. Media is still vital because it can be used to socialize and on the other hand to make decisions and formulates opinions: it builds up the notoriety of vices.
This unbreakable resolve for maintaining beliefs in contradiction to logic prevents us from seeing truth effectively. However, what drives the Backfire Effect? What drives the Backfire Effect is fear, peer pressure, and pressure from the media. Fear is a major driver of the effect. There are many types of fears: some imagined and some real.
It is very alarming how others can be so cruel just because they see someone as “different.” “Of course in a world that aligns life with the normal and relegates the abnormal to the space of death, normality is hard to argue against.” However, groups like INCITE! Women of Color against inassimilable, “shows the connections between interpersonal violence and larger systems of state violence.” Stanley talks about seeing violence as individual acts versus normative and normalizing structuring of public pain. In other words, choosing which act to publish for “public pain.” More than often you will see acts of violence being published on tv that are against minorities and for the majority, you will not see them talking about acts of violence against those who are queer because being queer is frowned upon in our society. This type of structural violence helps support the ongoing of inequality and violence queers, and queers of color face
Stereotyping refers to the fixed perception, idea, or image of an issue, thing, or a person that the society clings to, regardless of moral worthiness (Moskowitz, 2013). The concept of stereotyping is correlated with prejudice, which may be positive or negative. I find stereotyping to be mostly negative. Prejudice is the preconceived perception or opinion that is not necessarily found on any experience or reason (Macrae, Stangor, & Hewstone, 2006).

That paradox presents a dilemma for many people who cannot comprehend how gender is not a fixed definition and how people have a tendency to polarize their notions of gender. One of the ways opposition to the fandom accomplishes this accusation of deviancy is by suggesting Bronies are the problem rather than the media text.

While this may have historically been true, what our results showed is that these characterizations aren’t reflecting the behavior and aspirations of today’s men” (Casserly 1).

First, a stronger media censorship should be adopted because the ideals found in media are embedded in the listener’s and/or viewer’s mind, which results in them making irresponsible and negligent choices.
