These stereotypes are based on people who believe everything they see or read and obtain their judgments based on personal experience. Someone who sees a teenage boy with long hair and ripped baggy clothes riding a skateboard will automatically think he is a troublemaker, or that girl who is walking to class with glasses and carrying a group of books is a nerd. Why are these stereotypes the only assets these people are? There are more to these teenagers then what they are being stereotyped by. After stating some stereotypes of teenagers, it is clear that they are unfair.
All forms of bullying, including cyber-bullying, are considered intolerable and criminal at school.

He/she will feel alone, not going to school, becoming sick or thoughts of suicide. Furthermore, students who cyber-bully or is self-involved bullies
Peer pressure is involved everywhere in songs, movies, poems, novels, etc. Peer pressure negatively affects a lot of teens today because of how social media supports us causing depression and bad decisions. In the movie Mean Girls, directed by Mark Waters, shows an example of how peer pressure affects teens in high school. The movie Mean Girls is about the stereotypical high school with cliques. The “plastics” (“perfect girls”), pressure everyone to be like them and to scare them into doing unreasonable things.
He was often described a vulgar and many accused him of corrupting the youth. Teenagers all of a sudden felt good being rebellious and decided they would like different things than their parents. And so begin the generation gap of teenagers and their parents. Without the generation gap, the
Burton explores the extent to which teenagers are willing to sacrifice their morals to fit into society. Some examples of peer pressure and wanting to fit in, from the film is when Edward Breaks into the house even though he knows it is wrong and (its Jims house). He also cuts peoples’ hair because they praise him for it, he gets paid in acceptance, food etc. The audience feels helpless and sympathetic to Edward because they know that by doing something immoral he is likely to be caught. Burton has shown a character who is different from everybody else.
“Stereotypes have created a distortion of how every individual should be.” Taken from Jorge Robles essay, he has said it better than I could ever have. Stereotypes is harmful to our society, because it creates a negative environment and it makes people think less of themselves. Most stereotypes are negative. These negative comments effect everyone, especially teenagers. In the article, “The Effects of Stereotyping Teenagers” it states, “A teen might have the skills and talents to pursue a college degree in art or play collegiate sports, but never follow her dreams because she is stereotyped.
This can cause a person to choose the wrong path in life. Teen angst is a stage that most teenagers go through in which they feel overwhelmed and stressed out. I have previously observed a case of teen angst in the book, “The Outsiders”. This story depicts the reality of how people are often grouped and separated from others based on their social class. In this story, there was an ongoing rivalry between two main groups who were the Socs, a rich and powerful group, and the Greasers, a group that was considered to be uneducated and poor.
Anderson Feminism has been an issue in our society for a very long period of time and has been shown in movies, the media and novels. The novel “Lullabies for Little Criminals” by Heather O’Neil demonstrates an extreme case of feminism as the protagonist is shown to be manipulated by men as a way to survive in the current society. This reliance on men has a huge psychological effect on Baby and turns her towards the use of drugs, sexual acts and prostitution rings at a very young age. These acts make the protagonist look weak minded and a less important part of our society. Baby becomes very quickly
It’s really sad how today sexual assaults and harassments is caused by the media and the exploitation and sexualized images. Also, not only does it send the wrong message to men about power and dominance but also shows the wrong message to adolescents. For example, young kids who begin to look at the media for the first time. These advertisements are giving them the wrong message. I cannot imagine the kinds of effects it will have on the next future generation if it continues this way.
This can lead to bullying and being bullied by racial stereotyping is one way that creates a negative impact on innocent students academic performance. “Asian Americans are the most frequently bullied ethnic group due to such stereotypes, according to a 2004 study conducted with nearly 1,400 students”(Hwang, H. (2011, December 10). We strongly can see how these innocent Asian Americans are prone to bullying over racial stereotyping. We definitely see that bullying affects these Asian Americans negatively and starts to produce a lack of interest in education. This can be a horrifying to an Asian American who has plans and has goal to go to college and then have a job but how could an
