A stereotype is that we may have general thoughts about specific types (e.g. American Dream) of individuals. These thoughts may or may not be accurate. The stereotype may be from the media just like the movie (Burlesque), the advertisement (washing power), etc. in our daily life.
But, nowadays in many families, men also share the responsibilities of household duties with their wife.
3) American Dream
Most people always want to go to study in the America to have a degree to prove themselves.
The term “American dream” is used in many ways, but it essentially is an idea that suggests that anyone in the US can succeed through hard work and has the potential to lead a happy, successful life.
However, critics often point to examples of inequality rooted in class, race, religion and ethnicity that suggest that the American dream is not attainable for everyone.
What is American dream?
Most of people know that girls working in a strip club always wear hot. However most of them don’t understand what Burlesque is. That’s why when people saw these hot-wearing girls, people will think them from a strip club.
2) Ali left her hometown to L.A. because she thought, if she goes to an American city she can make her “American Dream” come true with hardworking and her talent.
The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work.

But today, the thought of the stereotype and the law are changing (The Law of Gender Equality).
1. Why do?
Based on the traditional thinking, we always think that girls have to like cute or little things and boys have to like manly things.

2. How different?
People around the world usually think so. This is a common and wide-ranging thinking.
1. Why do?
Most of people usually think that women are weaker than men, so they would think that men can support the whole family greatly. Because of this thinking, we would think that women just stay home and do house work.

2. How different?
As time went by, men also share the household together with their spouse, and most of women also have a job to support their family.
1. Why do?
We know that America has been one of the most powerful countries in the world since 19th century. We always think America is very good at their education, their movie, their democracy, etc.

2. How different?
However, in many countries, they would replace America with Taiwan.
