Stereotyping and social media. Develop a small list of behaviors typically associated with males and females (e.g., aggression, nurturance, etc.) then browse your social media pages and look for examples of sex-typed behaviors you listed. Discuss whether or not the male and female pages are presented differently, discuss if the pictures based on gender stereotypes.
Browse various commercials on TV, online, and in magazines, discuss if the images you found are based on gender stereotypes. Look at commercials from 1950-1960 and compare them to today’s commercials, discuss if there are any changes in how males and females are protrayed.
