In the film, Mean Girls directed by Mark Waters (2004), adolescents are represented as bullies, who use manipulation to achieve what they want and are two-faced with the people around them; they are constantly stereotyped as a high social group like the plastics and a low social group like the mathletes; also they are presented as young people that fall under peer pressure, and are overly concerned about their appearance and about being socially accepted. In this film by Mark Waters, teenagers are depicted as bullies who constantly manipulate people to get what they want and who are two-faced. Certain social groups, such as the Plastics, use manipulation to achieve their goals. This is evident when, in the phone call scene, Cady influences Gretchen and Katy and she makes them start hating Regina. This suggests that teenagers, in order to get what they want, will manipulate their own friends without caring about the consequences.
The violent demonstrate that youngsters open themselves to influence them to consider the world a mean and profoundly dangerous place to be. Blood and gore movies, the creator of violent media, raise discomfort among youngsters who watch them. The author utilizes many adjectives, and other grammatical and snazzy terms to make the content rich in a dialect which makes more attractive. “Children will feel rage. Even the sweetest and most civilized of them, even those whose parents read the better class of literary magazines, will feel rage” (Jones 66).
Start from this moment, Michael’s life was absolutely changed. Other than that, we also learn the true face of this society in this movie. Because of the body size and skin colour of Michael Oher, the schoolmate was boycott him and do not make friend with him. Not only the schoolmates, the friends of Leigh Anne also question and jeer her because she treats Michael as her children. In this few scenario, it can reflect that society nowadays was not as easy as what we think about.
I wouldn’t quite say that those who were saying it were bullies, but more unaware of the implications their words were causing. I blame this issue partly on learned behavior passed down from generation to generation, but mainly through the way blondes are portrayed in movies and television. Hollywood seems to glamourize the dumb blonde act, whether it be Cher in Clueless, Karen in Mean Girls, or Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. Growing up watching these movies led me to believe that I needed to act like looks and I know that everyone has had a brain hiccup at one point or another, that's part of being human, so there's no need to associate it with hair color just as Hollywood has
Teenagers are very different in personalities some teenagers like to get in trouble and some don’t think of what will happen next in their everyday lifestyle. Their was this book that i have read and it was about teenagers doing drugs and drinking and they were making careless mistakes and some of the teenagers will not do any of those things because they think of the consequences. Also some teenager will do a lot of things like not driving right making wrong turns and other things but they get over it and pick up from the beginning. Some people believe that teenagers are careless and don’t think about their consequences. Teenagers are careless in public and in school because they are in front of other people and try to do bad things and show off.
Teenagers act in irrational, impulsive and hazardous ways. This is due to their brains being underdeveloped and can’t form important connections, in fact a person's brain doesn't mature until their early 20’s. Teens also tend to put themselves at risk more than adults and misinterpret situations. Romeo and Juliet are an excellent example of the teen brain. Teens impulsive actions typically can be reckless for themselves and others.
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.
Especially when it affects your youth. Similarly to Brownies, Youth by Sunaina Maira shows that it is not always easy fitting into one category. Whether it be with age or race, there is no one set definition for youth but instead a whole range. How you grow up is a factor on how you see life which influences your time as an “adolescence”, slowly becoming an adult. Angry Youth shows youth through the protests and anger coming from the videos made by Tang Jei.
There are many different types of stereotypes in confrontations between Greasers and Socs. Greasers are known to be poor and ‘no good criminals’, while the Socs are known to just be kids growing up, angels who can do no wrong. An example of this is when Dally, Ponyboy and Johnny are at the movies and meet a teenage Soc named Cherry who calls Dally a dirty no good Greaser. This illustrates how the Socs put a label on the Greasers without even knowing them, proving that all the Socs have been ‘brainwashed’ to this false reality where they have a predetermined assumption that all Greasers are rudimentary and inferior. Classism becomes more visible as the story moves on.
Mean Girls is your classic high school drama movie. Its about how the new girl at school named Cady Heron joins the popular group called “The Plastics” to sabotage them. Cady becomes friends with a gay guy and his best friend, which they then convince her to join “The Plastics” to ruin their reputation at school. The high school is filled with many tight knit cliques that consume the whole school which they try to get rid of. The plot of the movie involves many things that a feminist might find offensive In Mean Girls, the whole cast is made up of mostly women with only three main men having important role and one of those men is gay.
Stereotypes of Young Adults To the Editor: When most people think of stereotypes of young adults they certainly think about them partying, going out, drinking, going to clubs and having sex like the reality show Jersey Shore portrays young adults mostly between the ages of 18 to 21. It is a negative influence for audience when they show all these stereotypes on reality TV because then, the other young adults that actually have some good traits would also try to be like the stars in Jersey Shore and learn to do bad things like drinking and having unprotected sex because they think that if the stars are doing it its cool which it is not. I think the stereotype that is attached with young adults and the show Jersey shore portrays is negative also. As a young adult and a researcher, who have spent time researching about young adult stereotype, I don’t think that all the young adults have the stereotype of partying, drinking, going to clubs and having unprotected sex. I am not saying that there aren 't any young adults with these types of stereotypes but not all of the young adults have these stereotypes.
