Yet they are still treated as second class citizens. The media continuously emphasizes gender stereotypes and trivializes the seriousness of women’s sports. Women need to speak up and defend the right for girls to play. Although, men are physiologically bigger, faster, and stronger, female athletes deserve to be celebrated and respected for their talent and not just their bodies. Females deserve to be a recognized part of the athletic community.
Consequently, the embedding of stereotypes is reinforced, because we get the impression of females, who do not care much about soccer, but more about good looks. By contrast, male fans are used to represent the image of masculinity, therefore “own” the power and knowledge in
Some countries do this so other countries join in with them. Women have the strength, and are as equal to men as men are to women. People think of women as being hurt, and being took down by other people. In combat all you do is focus on strength. If your a women you always have the fear of not being strong enough up against someone else.
Men being superior in physical abilities over women is a phrase heard a lot and not to be overlooked. Some people believe that women can do any physical role as good as a man can, but do these women resemble the majority? If we take samples from sportsmen and sportswomen and on the other hand samples from men and women who do not do sports or exercise, we would find that the statistics would always show that men who either do exercise or do not, when compared to women in a controlled experiment, are physically stronger.  Yes, a female body-building athlete can handle a tough manual labour, but it is less likely that she would do it anyways. An article published by Major League Baseball says that it is impossible for women to participate in the major league, because only a few women would qualify.
Both male and female prisoners are at risk of torture and rape, but misogynistic societies may be more willing to abuse women prisoners. Men and women are both given opportunities to join the army, but with the understanding that different roles require different physical, emotional attributes. This should mean in turn that there are multiple routes to promotion so that women have equal opportunities without having to fight take part in combat operations . As long as an applicant is qualified for a position, one’s gender is arbitrary. It is easy to recruit and deploy women who are in better shape than many men sent into combat.
Sports are known as a form of entertainment used to unite Americans, until the idea of race comes into play; when athletes of certain races are discriminated against. The highest paid players at most positions often consist of athletes of the same race. There is a major gap in sports between the careers of the athletes, as many people are forced into other positions or careers due to their race. Nearly predetermined career paths negatively affect athletes in all sports because a lot of sports are populated by people of specific races, people of certain races dominate many positions, and stereotypes of athletes lead to advantages for people of various races. Baseball is often classified as a ‘white-person’s sport’, as football is considered mainly a ‘black-person’s sport’.
In the meantime, these stereotypes turn individuals into a mass of others who lack separate personalities (p.4). A stereotype is a general view that can be received about particular sorts of people or certain methods for doing things. Through stereotypes, people make general judgments about others without knowing them. The most common stereotypes are racial, sexual, and gender remarks. For example, in many cultures men are considered to be stronger, smarter and more successful than women.
Today’s society still has a main set of ideas on how men and women are expected to dress, behave, and present themselves solely based on their gender. Gender role expectations can vary from each society, ethnic group, and culture. Gender based stereotypes are widely accepted judgments or biases about a person or group, but these stereotypes are typically exaggerated and not always accurate. Gender based stereotypes can cause sexism, which is defined as “prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.” (Oxford Dictionary). Although gender roles are changing for the better, they still exist in today’s world and affect our society’s perspective on gender based personality traits, domestic behaviors and
It is a concept to where if someone is male they are masculine, and if someone is female then they are feminine. It is an issue in many sports today because people tend to have a problem if they see any women participating in any male dominant sport that is deemed to be considered masculine. It shapes inequality in American sport by only allowing women to play in the feminine sports, when sometimes the women may want to be involved in any male or masculine sport. Gender conforming is when a female is supposed to engage in feminine sports or activities whereas males are supposed to engage in only masculine sports or activities. According to Joe Coakley, females are supposed to be only involved in feminine sports, and males are supposed to only be in masculine dominant sports.
A gender bias is not implied clearly in the text although there are clear suggestions towards certain perceptions of the sexes. There seems to be some qualities that guide the development of characters based on whether they are female or male. The gender roles and identities reflect an image that is very typical in the Western world in the early 20th century which makes the text well suited for its time. The context of time explains the perception of Loretta as a weak and sensitive woman while the men, especially Ned Bashford, are portrayed as educated and intellectually intelligent which creates a traditional division between femininity and masculinity. Loretta is continuously described as uncertain and sensitive to emotions and affections from other people: “That’s the trouble.
