71: Stereotyping
... Yes there may be a few Irish alcoholics, Chinese thieves, cheap Jewish people, and lazy Natives, but that does not mean, however, that they are all like they are said to be. A person who stereotypes could be considered as a prejudiced person. A prejudiced person does not take the time to understand another as an individual. Instead, they make preconceptions about another, regarding their age, sex, race, nationality, class or culture. In my previous case, I was prejudiced about my acquaintances from Hong Kong's nationality or culture. The general relationship between a person who is prejudiced and a person who stereotypes is the fact that they are both mean-spirited. That is, they violate the rights of individuals by forming perceptions about people based solely on their membership in a particular group. Consequently, they fail to ... actually go in favour of what they see or hear. This abusing of power by the media is one of the many fosters of stereotyping. Another origin of stereotyping, is through the social pipeline.

The behaviours observed included activities, playing with toys, sex of playmates, and social interactions with peers and teachers. It was found ... done by conducting more cross-cultural studies involving cultures different from our own. Preschoolers play with toys also contains sex differences (Turner, et al., 1993). These sex differences seem to originate form the child learning stereotypes from society. Children simply learn to like certain "sex- appropriate" toys, because they are exposed to them and encouraged to play with them more often. According to one study (Idle, et al., 1993), children accepted ... sex differences in play in preschoolers are a result of learned behaviours. Our society seems to play a large role in determining gender differences because children are encourages to act according to male of female stereotypes. More studies, especially cross-cultural ones should be conducted to try to determine why these sex differences occur, because as of now, no single theory can account completely for childrens's sex differences in ...
73: Gender Roles: The Discrimination Against Men
... the economy and men's unequal responsibility to succeed in the workplace, to prove their worth by making money; and men's confusion over what it means to be a man today. There are many stereotypes about men and women that are heard every day. The most common, however, is how men are considered jerks. That is one of the most popular ideas in our society today. Women have come to ... moon, why can't they send them all?" Another example would be titles of certain books. Titles such as, "No Good Men." and, "Men Who Can't Love." (Farrell 250) These are examples of negative stereotypes against men and are a huge part of the problem. Men are unfairly portrayed as monsters and women end up believing that all men are heartless and uncaring. The media is a strong influence, and if it continues to produce negative stereotypes against men, then women will continue to believe them. Another factor which is a part of male sexism is the pressure that men feel to be successful. Men have come to see it as ...

When listening to rapper Too Short and his song "Gettin it", you here a lot of stereotypes being defied. The song is about getting out of the hood and making a good life for yourself. Most of society just assumes that these young black rappers have no brain's and no sense ... set your self some goals, think positive, and keep hustling". Too Short has got to the financial level he's at, by following the keys that he describes in his song, not by following the stereotypes that parent's turn off of the TV. Acting ghetto, for appeal, and rapping with a sweet rythym tongue was only the bare minimum of what he needed to rise to the top of ...

77: Coming Of Age In Mississippi
... for people who , just kidding . I found the book altogether insightful into the life of an African-American raised in the deep south during the civil rights movement . Although some parts played into the old stereotypes I heard over and over growing up , it did display a radical new breed for this period , a black , woman at that, fighting for her rights . It also gave us a look at what many ... this period . I have definitely developed a deep sense of respect for the civil rights activist of the sixties since reading this book . Like I said in my opening paragraph some parts played into the stereotypes of blacks , some old , some new . The fact that Anne's mother had what , five or six children , I lost count about halfway through the book . Why in the hell would you have that many children when your living under the poverty line ? That is just stupid ! Also the blacks who accepted the abuse they recieved and did nothing about it . Both of these play into stereotypes . The first being a newer stereotype which I have seen associated with many black women today , that is that they have numerous children without the money to adequately support them . The second being that ...
78: Gender Socialization
... little Joey looks like a girl or b aby Michelle is mistaken for a boy. Mothers and fathers make it easy for everyone to distinguish their bundle of joy by utilizing the socially established gender stereotypes. But where and how did these stereotypes come from? Unfortunately, I don't think there is a definite answer to that question. We seem to accept that blue is for boys and pink is for girls. Boys generally play with balls, toy trucks and building blocks whereas girls spend their time with dolls, tea sets and stuffed animals. But these are the stereotypes that are influenced by the parents. A baby child isn't concerned with his or her gender identity. As the child gets older though, he or she will begin to develop an identity for ...
79: Prime-time Animation
... This is owing to Matt Groening's aspirations to create a farce of science fiction in a distinctively warped animated series (Groening, ). The Simpsons, and the genre of prime-time animations it started, contain many stereotypes on Western and pop culture. Family Guy falls into this genre. "There's dad Peter, a fat quality control inspector in a toy factory where his, um, flamboyant boss lets him get away with sleeping ... makers who are necessary in any family sitcom. Lisa, Lou Anne (cousin), and Meg all compose the annoying sister roles of the family. Families in prime-time animation are stereotyped in the exact same way. Stereotypes are not limited to family roles. The Simpsons consists of an enormous amount of stereotypical characters. From police Chief Wiggum (who is drawn with the nose of a pig) to Lionel Hutts, attourney at law ... because of the ideologies and values which they promote. The Simpsons changed everything in prime-time animation in 1990, when it premiered as its own show. This show is comprised of satirical views and common stereotypes on pop culture.

80: Who Loves Lucy? I do, I do!
... Lucy, totally dependent on her husband Ricky for financial support.” (unknown, chap 12) This view may be a bit harsh, but is probably shared by many people. Not only is the show filled with harmful stereotypes that may affect the women of today, but it also affects men and the way that they treat women. An example that supports this idea is the way in which Ricky would discipline Lucy whenever ... argument described, the benefits that “I Love Lucy” convenes to the public far outweigh the negatives. Even though it may seem that Lucy is totally oppressed at times, it is her outward defiance of these stereotypes that make this show such a success and positive influence on society as a whole.

Watching this show, we know that women are not to be treated that way. “ ...
