Transcript of Stereotype: Girls are weak.

*Like a girl*
Why did we pick this stereotype?
Video from Always. "Like a Girl"
Example #1
Mean Girls: Feelings Scene.
In this scene, we're trying to emphasise on the girls expressing their feelings as this is put down as girls are weak, and Regina George also is put off as weak when she is put down from what Katie did to her and she freaked out.
Example #2
Stereotype: Girls are weak.
Keshia Hodgson & Chantelle Holtslag
Safe Haven: Fighting Scene
In this scene of Safe Haven,the husband thinks he can control his wife and physically beats her to the point where she has to run away and hide.
Example #3
Example #4
In this scene of Cyberbully, you can see that the girl is very emotional and about to attempt to harm herself. You don't see many guys getting this emotional over bullying, because men are usually the type to hold in their feelings until they "blow up" as women tend to express their feelings constantly.
This stereotype is something that is said in a bad way to most people. Like, "You drive like a girl"; "You hit like a girl"; etc. Many say girls are weak and they are definitely wrong. Many girls are attached to this subject really strongly, and many don't do anything about it and are okay with it. It's all up to what you think about the situation. Us both has different views on the idea. Chan thinks that men and women are both weak in a sense, as Keshia thinks that girls aren't weak and are equally strong as men, maybe even more in some ways.
How is the stereotype shown in the example? Explain in detail.
Always Commerical: Shows that once you grow older, the thought of being girly is negative. As when you're a little girl, it means a compliment.
Mean Girls: Shows how that girls always attack and put each other down.
Safe Haven: Shows that the stereotype of a husband who thinks they're better than they're wife, which isn't the case and should never resort to violence.
Cyberbully: Shows that women express their feelings more and have more needs than men, this shouldn't be showed as weakness. It shows that they've been putting on a front for awhile and need someone there.
Is this example primarily positive, negative, or neutral? Explain.
Always Commercial: It's neutral, as the little girls find that "Like a Girl" is a compliment, as the others, boys and older women, tend to think that it's an insult.
Mean Girls: Negative, because girls tend to go behind each others backs and make other girls feel worthless.
Safe Haven: Negative, because anyone in an abusive relationship is found weak, but really they are strong. Some leave, but some don't have control over the situation.
Cyberbully: Negative, because men think it's weak when women show lots of emotions, especially in this video.
What message does this sterotype send to children?
Always Commercial: They feel like the message is incorrect in a whole, as they think everyone should be equally viewed.
Mean Girls: Men don't usually go for the drama and fight out in the open, as women tend to do, a lot.
Safe Haven: You see some women go into abusive relationships, and it's hard to get out of them.
CyberBully: Many women get attacked online or in person, as girls tend to go after each other.
The most interesting/disturbing thing is that you would think that women would stick together, but they also go against each other.
This stereotype exists as women show their emotions more, and most aren't as "strong" as men.
In a way, it can be harmful to children's self-esteem, but in other ways it isn't harmful. It does show them how to react in situations, like an abusive relationship: instead of running away from the situation, find help.
The whole stereotype is a negative. "Girls are weak" is a sentence no woman wants to hear. It can be more positive, if men just dont say it at all.
