No-platforming does limit people’s speech sometimes when they aren’t even trying to say things that are inappropriate or malicious. One point was when they said that people could falsely get people charged or in trouble over what someone will claim were hurtful words. Everyone has a different line of what they describe as hurtful. To one person a comment can be offensive and to another it is just everyday common talk. This will be hard to distinguish what was rude from what wasn’t and people will be able to turn little things into something it was not meant too be and with not having a limit on free speech this would not be able to happen.
Some newspapers, TV shows, and websites can be helpful, but most of it is junk and used just for the joy of entertainment. Overall, the mass media negatively affects people on a large basis because of a wrong message, addiction and overload to certain media, and the influence media might have on behavior and the outlook of life. The key to try to avoid the negative influence of mass media is to limit your exposure and to choose what you watch. It’s impossible to avoid the effects of media completely, but we can choose what we believe and not allow the media to influence us. Using our proper judgment and taking a moment to think about the things we see in the media will put our minds in the proper perspective and allow us to inhibit the positive influences the mass media can have on us.
One stereotype leads to one misconception and many stereotypes lead to many misconceptions. Stereotypes are a big image or idea of a particular group, type of person, or thing. Misconceptions are a view that someone has or opinion due to false thinking or incorrect understanding.There are some truths to the stereotypes that are classified over particular groups of people. In an article it states, “One disadvantage is that it makes us ignore differences between individuals; therefore we think things about people that might not be true” (McLeod 1).And that is the reason why many misconceptions are thought of, due to people’s opinion and views society has.Then the young children that are the most influenced learn those misconceptions and stereotypes and the cycle continues. Most of the time stereotypes are often exaggerated and do not represent that group, person, or thing in reality the way society portrays them to be.
Society feels that PWDs are a threat physically. For Instance, people with psychiatric and intellectual disabilities are often seen as violent, hostile and destructive. As disabilities are categorized false stereotypes are often made because not every individual with a disability share the same experiences or characteristics so this causes negative societal responses.

PWOD don’t focus on the self-identity of PWD rather they focus on the disability itself and that’s how PWD are defined.
Freedom of speech means that one must speak his mind to without fear of being punished, detained or discriminated against it. Freedom of speech also means that you may distribute your personal views, for example by organizing a demonstration against a new law, or publish his opinion in a newspaper, on the radio, television or the Internet. Freedom of speech is one of the human rights that the United Nations has included in 'The Universal Declaration of Human Rights'. All 193 member states of the UN have agreed so to guarantee the freedom of speech in their country. Nevertheless, it is not respected everywhere, including in countries where there is war or that have a dictator as head.
Some kids may be depressed, allowing them to think differently, therefore taking in the violence from the game which leads to them acting it out. With proper circumstances, violent games allow kids to become someone else, having the ability to be violent, without hurting anyone else. Doing that is better than letting out anger in the real world, but kids need t... ... middle of paper ... ...ing the effects it can have in the world they are playing in. But when it comes down to it, it is really just a game that kids can have fun playing with friends. These games are okay, but like any game, should not be the only focus a person has because that could do actual damage, like addiction.
On the other side of the issue, Weinstein proposes that “bigoted ideas should be refuted, not censored”(Mante, 2015, p.785) Because the First Amendment guarantees each individual the right to express any viewpoint, even those that the vast majority of Americans finds offensive, disturbing or even morally repugnant” (Mantel, 2015, p. 785). Then he speculates that of the first amendment becomes more restrained from laws that regulates hate speech would likely undermine the vigorous protection of public discourse” that the First Amendment protects (Mantel, 2015, p. 785). SCOTUS would have a difficult time “articulating a principle, which would exclude hate speech from First Amendment protection” and not result in censorship of other ideas (Mantel, 2015, p. 785).Because hate speech does not cause people to “discriminate against minorities” (Mantel, 2015,.). Then he goes on to explain his reasoning on why he believes that the regulation of hate speech shouldn’t be considered a positive idea. For example, he believes that the regulations would likely impede public discussion of important issues.
Hate speech has remained a topic of great debate, especially after the Second World War. In order to put limits on the absolute right to freedom of expression, international community jotted down various agreements in the shape of conventions and charters but out of these three international instruments named as the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD), and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) are very much famous in granting the right to freedom of expression to all humans though conditional with various restrictions as deemed necessary and fit under law in order to protect the respect, reputation and honour of others. This limitation is extended by the ICCPR and CERD; as Article 4(a) of the CERD expressly requires from the state parties to it to ensure the prohibition on the dissemination of all forms of ideas as based on racial superiority or hatred. Besides this Article 20 of the
It also causes people to lose the way they look at their fellow human. . In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee shows how prejudice causes people to believe in rumors, judge others by their skin color, and the beliefs of others. One form of prejudice is rumors, it can cause harm to that individual who is being targeted and affect their future based on the rumor actually is and whether people would actually believe it or not. Rumors can easily hide the truth about that person’s personality because they are basically lies, opinions, and made up stories about that individual.
For every outlet of information, there are some who see it as dangerous not because it affects them, but because it might affect the thoughts and opinions of an imaginary third party”(McRaney). The media can have both, a positive and negative impact on how it’s affecting and influencing society. Many people don’t acknowledge how they are being affected, but how others are. The mistake to view this issue in that perspective is inaccurate because it’s affecting us all. Specifically, the groups where they don’t share the same beliefs and ideas are the ones who we think are being influenced and bowled over by the messages through media and the world.
