I'm Not A Man-hater, But This Is Ridiculous

Women are portrayed as sexual objects or dumb trophies more and more in today's media.

It has actually caused me to start ignoring the media as much as possible. I mean, I know that women often put themselves in those stereotypes, and I don't totally blame men, but isn't it time we women stood up for REAL and set better examples for our gender? Stop placing so much emphasis on beauty and place more emphasis on brains. Stop allowing this false perception to continue. No one can change it but us.

Its still a mans world. I dont iike it either. For me its whats inside that counts. The hide that the media has to say that freckles is a fault. I have freckles so that means i am faulty. Stay away from me.

A mans world? Hm...I'd have to disagree. Men don't rule the world, they never have. Women from ancient times have had important roles in society, it's just not emphasized a lot.

I agree. the way media portrays women is often degrading and limiting. I would love to be able to tune out the media completely for this reason, but it's all around. I would just love to see some positive portrayals instead.
