Transcript of Gender Stereotypes

Media with Gender Stereotypes
What Interests and Perspectives are Portrayed?
Audiences Responses
Different audiences will have different perspectives. This is because everyone has their own opinion and will interpret them the way they want to. For example, with the
Old Spice
commercial, kids wouldn't really pay attention to the message. They would probably think that the commercial's funny. Teenagers probably pay more attention to the ad's message because they may want to be like the man in the ad. Different genders could also have different responses. The commercial could affect males more because they are the ones being convinced that if you don't use
Old Spice
you're not a man. Girls on the other hand, aren't as affected although they might want to buy it for someone they know. Elders may not pay attention to these ads at all. Of course, some people just watch the commercial, laugh, then forget about it. It doesn't effect them in any way.
What effect does the message have on society?
Stereotypes are completely brainwashing us. Society is telling us the way to behave or act. Stereotypes are labeling people and sometimes people start to believe their label. Either that or people want to be like that and think the stereotype is true and change themselves to be more like it.

' was a TV show created and produced by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, and aired on the TV channel NBC.

The stereotype in the clip from the TV show is that boys can't play with Barbies or any other "girl toys". Instead they should play with action figures and monster trucks.

This stereotype is here mostly for comedic purposes. It made the episode more entertaining and funny. There could be an underlying message there though, that boys SHOULD play with tougher things like cars and toy guns. Girls on the other hand are the ones that should play with dolls, play dress up, and have tea parties.
