The media can alter sports viewer’s opinions by relaying positive messages toward women’s sports. As well as sports authoritators distributing equal pay for equal work. The abundant amount of support that the media and viewers allocate will allow a higher amount of equality for women in the sports industry. This kind of support will lead women in sports salaries rise and eventually match the hardship of achievements as a minority in today’s sports
Sports Gender Segregation Do you think women should play with men professionally in a sport? Although people may believe that women should be treated equally with men when it comes to certain things, but when it comes to sports it is totally different. Sometimes sports are not always played for fun. Sports take a real big part on the competitive side. Some may argue that girls can play a sport better than boys, people think that girls should play with the boys because they should be treated equally.
Boys have to go deal with the peer pressure they get from other boys about attending school and are left thinking getting an education is not cool. This types of thinking have made boys think that school curriculum is not masculine and too girly. The academic journal “masculinity goes to school” Robert Gilbert, Pamela Gilbert and Alen Segal states “Furthermore, students interpret curriculum as feminine or masculine, based on subject content, teaching methods, and learning processes. Physical education, for instance, exemplifies masculinity, and is a powerful medium of gender normalization in schools” (Gilbert & Alen n.p). Peer pressure makes boys not think logically.
Some students, when exposed to physical discipline, become angry and try to harm their teachers, or even other students. Also, children who experience or see physical punishment acquire behaviors that are very disruptive. My father, Joseph Bosco, thinks that corporal punishment doesn’t always deter students, it may deter some or help some resolve their issues but in other cases, it doesn’t. This shows that corporal punishment doesn’t always stop bad behavior. Many students stop going to or participating in school activities and they withdraw from academics.
Caruso discusses, “There are two main reasons of conflict on school uniforms. The reasons are: a student’s right to their opinion and having a school safe environment for the students” (Caruso 86). Many students feel angry towards schools for perusing school uniforms because many feel they express themselves only through their clothes. Students that feel they cannot express their style through clothes at school may later on rebel against the school and their parents. Uniforms to some may feel uncomfortable and may not be universal to all body styles.
Surprisingly, when women are active in sports they seem to have more self confidence and self awareness. When women are treated equally they know they are just as important as men, which has a drastic boost in their self esteem. When women participate in sports the rate of loneliness and depression is not as fast as when women are not participating in sports (“Women”). Self esteem impacts the quality of life. Any solution that allows self esteem growth in the lives of women should be implemented.
Questions have arisen to what is going on, why this is happening and ideas on how to fix the problems. It is suggested that one of the reasons that boys are having problems is in the classroom curriculum. The way teachers are teaching the boys and the type of material chosen is what is failing the boys. The rules in schools are tougher not allowing any leeway for any missteps should any mistakes happen, pushing boys out of schools. There are many boys that have to choose between family or school.
He does not know how to ask help, even to his mother; in result, his academic performance is left behind because of his inside struggles. Pollack deduces that boys’ self-esteem as learner is far more fragile than of most girls which boys are afraid to sit in front of row or be active in class because they do not want to be called as a nerd, dork, or something like that (65). Recent research indicates... ... middle of paper ... ...ays, I hope that schools, teachers, as well as societies can do an action to stop this bullying. For some reason, our societies still cannot accept that boys still need attention, assistance, and empathy because they think that they are boys, and boys do not need something like that. As Pollack says that this will cause some destruction on some boys in their emotions expressions, academic and social performances, or even mentalities.
In addition, some may argue that pop-culture suggest that it’s not cool to be educated or go to college. Some argue that because biologically speaking, boys learn to read and write way after girls do. According to McArdle, “Boys, who already find school difficult, fall behind, become discouraged and give up” (McArdle 167). There are many things that may influence why boys can’t seem to be interested in school. There is no definite understanding of why boys are having this much trouble, one can almost say the reason that it’s hard to figure it out, is a problem in
Blake experienced high levels of bullying during that period which got so bad that he would either pretend to be sick or force himself to get sick to avoid going to school at times. This all points to a poor hidden curriculum at his middle school. A stronger hidden curriculum would have pointed his peers in a direction to not bully him and perhaps even encourage weight loss if they were mature enough themselves at this period in their
