This week i'm posting about gender roles in our media. I see that even though our society wants to go forward into a neutral state of gender roles why is it that our media doesn't want to follow the same path. Most of the commercials that i see has been similar to the ones i remember 8 years ago. I still see commercials with boys playing with trucks and action figures. I still see girls wearing colors like pink and purple. I wonder why commercials aren't realistic. They're a lot of different children in the world. For example, growing up i acted more like a boy. I was a tom boy. I loved sports and playing football for fun. I rarely see any commercials with girls playing sports. I used to like playing with cars and action figures as well. I remember my mom would always make me feel like it was a bad thing. She would make me wear pink dresses, and pushed me into glitter and barbies.I want to see commercials with kids playing with toy babies or a toy kitchen because one day he'll be an uncle or a dad. Or a boy playing with a baking oven. I would love to see Lego's making more commercials for girls without making the legos pink. I feel like these kind of commercials push children into not following the path they want to go into.
