Stereotypes

January 14, 2010

What stereotype do you think you fit in to?  Is it even alright to stereotype people from your first encounter with them?  I don’t think I fit into any stereotype.  I say that because I don’t stereotype people so why would I stereotype myself, even I did I still wouldn’t fit into any stereotype.  Some stereotypes are good while the others are not so good.  The joker and the big shot are the good and the rest are bad.  They help men’s self-image and esteem.  It helps them because they will work hard to portray those images.  Yes I do think these stereotypes are accurate of men in our society, however they left a couple of stereotypes though.  You shouldn’t stereotype people though because a person can act a certain way but be a totally different person.  That can cause some problems also.  If you see a person with holes in their shoes, dirty clothes on, and beer on his breath you would automatically assume that this person is a homeless crack head.  That man can be the wealthiest man in the world.  My mother once told me that you should never judge a book by its cover.  I did judge a book by its cover and the outcome wasn’t very pretty.  From that day forth I never did that again.  Some stereotypes help people become a better person.  For instance say someone wants to impress a girl who likes successful people, you are going to portray that successful person which eventually will inspire you to really want to be a successful person.

Does the mind count?

January 14, 2010

Does the mind count when it comes to a woman? In today’s society the media makes it all about women’s looks instead of her brains. This can affect women and girls because they will feel as though they have to live up to the image the media portrays. Music videos are one example. It portrays it’s all about women with big ole butts. Now little girls may grow up with low self esteem because they may not be happy with the way they look. Some girls throw their food back up because the media portrays “thin is in”. The media needs to portray a more positive outlook on women. It’s not about how the woman looks on the outside, but the insides matter as well. Also a lot of men would rather call a woman a negative name than to compliment on how intelligent or educated she is. Now when a women dresses a certain way they are sluts, whores, hoes, and etc. It doesn’t even matter where your mind is at anymore. Based on how you dress will determine on how a man will approach you and treat you. It’s believed that men are better than women. Men are smarter than women. Women cannot do a lot of what men can do. I believe people are intimidated by how smart a woman is. Now society, the media needs to treat women the way they should be treated, and to me that is as women of civilization. What is looks or a body without a great mind to go with it.

Do Stereotypes Fit Me?

January 12, 2010

The only stereotype I think I fit under is joker.  If I had to pick if that was good or bad, I would have to say it was good.  The reason I say that is because nine times out of ten, if you’re a boy and could make a girl laugh then you got her.  Funny people are always the center of attention.  But on the other side, if you’re known for playing or joking, a lot of people may not take you seriously.  That’s why you’re not supposed to play all the time.  There is a place and a time for everything. The next stereotype is jock. That’s a bad one because the media tries to portray jocks as dumb sports player who can play sports and nothing else outside of the sports they play.  The strong silent type doesn’t apply to me either. A sk my girl if you think I’m lying.  I don’t bite my tongue for anybody.  I don’t try to be a big shot or an action hero because if you don’t live up to the title then everybody hates you.  And last but not least is Buffon.  I could never be whatever you call it because when it comes to my daughter,  I take the best care of her. I had too many brothers and sisters to not know what I’m doing.
