Alison J. Garrow's curator insight, January 29, 2015 5:10 PM

This article is a very good article to think about a read. It is saying that all African Americans are seen a being masculine. All Asians are to be seen as feminine. All though this is obviously not true, they are being stereotyped in this way. One part of the article states something along the lines of that black women are being stereotyped as manly because of the slavery period when they had to do all the things a typical man would, like field work. But this shouldn't be so, times have changed. Some speak out and say that they are working on killing the stereotype of the out of control and strong personality typed black women. I think that these stereotypes are not something to be set in stone because no matter what race every individual is different.

Adding salt to injury is the way the media dissociates sex from emotions--yet obviously sex is going to be a lot more enjoyable if you are emotionally mature and are with someone you feel safe with, have a deep commitment to, and care deeply for.

 

Abstinence-only education starts with the idea that teenagers listen to adults and manages to get even stupider
