I don't believe people actually perceive women in this way... These are just jokes, there are plenty of jokes about men also. It does give a negative impact on women whether its a joke or not. The "maybe that's why they get paid less" is a little too far and is an issue in some places still. So I don't think we should joke around about that. But women don't need to take these jokes too seriously cause there are similar jokes about men also.
I agree with you on the part about women don't need to take it to seriously because there is jokes about men too. But even though we think women shouldn't take it to seriously some women do. And I think men don't get teased about it as much as women do. And that's not right. I think it doesn't create a big negative impact toward men as it does women. I think the reason for that is because men are never really seriously. They joke about everything so they don't take it too seriously like women do.
I agree. Women don't need to take these types of things so seriously since they are just jokes and it's not like they don't hear them all the time. I also agree that there are some statements that should be left unsaid but in the end there's always something that could be said back about men. These jokes can work both ways, but for some reason women always seem to take the harder hit. Maybe its because they're more sensitive or something, I don't know.
I agree fully. The jokes aren't necessarily appropriate but people should lighten up. There are sexist jokes about men as well. Some people are just too sensitive for there own good.
I agree with you Breanna. Those are jokes but are some what offensive. Women take that kind of stuff that men say to heart. Some was a joke, haha, but men have plenty of jokes women can come up with. This is why I agree with you.
I agree with you. Jokes about women should not be made, but its a JOKE, granted that they are harmless they still are rude. An you're correct they make jokes about men but they're less harmless, and when you say something they get all defensive. So no jokes should'be made
I agree with Breanna. I believe that what some women perceive as sexism is really just a simple joke made by a male. I would also agree that sometimes, because of our human nature, us males can take these jokes too far. I don't think that superiority over someone should be made light of, and some males view themselves as more superior. So, I do agree with Breanna on all of the points that she made, and I also believe that there is no superior sex, and that men and women are equal.
I do and don't agree with this. I do believe that most people don't perceive women in this way, but there are far more jokes about women than men. I honestly don't ink we should joke about anything like this. It's degrading to women, even if it is a joke. More people take these "jokes" seriously than most people think.
I agree. Women shouldn't take this to seriously. It really is just a joke.
I think some perceived woman this way but some people don't. Like some people know its a joke. But other don't. I think it does give a negative impact on women because for the people who don't know it's joke perceive women that way but also for the people who know its a joke also continue the joke. So either way its a negative impact on women. And I bet some women take it to offense. Which isn't right. We are just making woman feel bad.
Yeah I believe some people put these jokes in a certain tone that women take seriously. But I think all this started as a joke teasing someone. I think that's what it still is today. Just those group of five or seven people actually meaning it. I like teasing women with these jokes, but they are all my friends so they don't pay much attention to it.
I agree with you Brooke. Some guys are just jerks and think that way. I think a lot of people know its a joke but some guys that are juste asses really treat women like they are pretty and not worth anything. Even if it is a joke, some of it is just taking too far. I agree with Brooke. I'm a girl and I don't appreciate or tolerate it when the joking gets too a certain extent.
I don't really think this is how women in society are perceived, but I guess it depends on the type of person's attitude. Certain things can be taken a little bit too far sometimes though. Including comments on how men work harder or whatever which is clearly NOT true. I don't really think the memes have an impact on women at all because they aren't really serious, and I guess women have kind of gotten used to these stereotypical sexist jokes.
i totally agree with you. i think that women have heard these sexist jokes for so long that they are just used to it and dont really take it personal. i think that some memes or pictures can be taken too far, and then some women take it offensively. i also agree with you that the way people see these memes all depend on what type of person it is reading it. some people take sexist jokes offensively, and others just laugh and dont take it serious.
I agree with you that it just depends on how the woman is, that hears the joke. But we shouldn't take it personally. They are all jokes that shouldn't be taken to harshly. There are jokes about women, men, white, black, and literally everything and we can't take them seriously!
I agree, some people just have a negative attitude about everything, and even LOOK for stuff to think negatively about. Honestly though, to what you were saying about us not working harder, I don't even think we put in AS MUCH effort. We're simply lazy and require someone less so to, say, make us a sandwich. Bam.
I agree. People say jokes that they don't really mean, they are just trying to get attention or give someone a hard time. I agree with the fact that women work just as hard as men also! The sandwich joke gets really annoying, but is not taken seriously. People just joke around with all of these jokes.
I completely agree with this. Women worker just as harder, if not harder than men. This is the 21st century. People need to stop treating women like this. Women have gotten used to these types of jokes. However I don't think that they should have to deal with this.
I agree with you on this. Women shouldn't take these things too seriously, because for the most part this isn't how they are perceived. However, some jokes can go too far. I think when it comes to this, there is a line that doesn't need to be crossed, and it doesn't often get crossed. When people cross the line though, sexist jokes can be quite offensive.
I don't think this is how woman is perceived by the whole society. I think there are some people do think woman as a second class citizen but that is because that was how it was a long time ago. I feel these were just jokes people made to be funny, I don't think they took they seriously. I do see how they can have a negative view of woman but there are some about men. The last one was how men are expected to be gentleman and some woman think they are just being sexist because they were trying to be nice. So woman are just as bad as being unfair to the opposite sex.
I kind of agree with you like most of these sexist comments we've all heard and were use to them and they don't bother us but some women in the world it does have a negative impact like with men getting paid more and there are some about men but there not as harsh because we as women are trying to shake the reputation of just being a housewife but these comments and some men make it hard to do that
I honestly don't think women are perceived in this way. Men just try to act all big and like they rule women...no! It's just a joke. To me, women are needed to be treated equally. Usually, it depends on the persons attitude. Some take it seriously and some take it as a joke.
I agree that women aren't perceived this way. And I agree that the way people will react to those pictures is just based on their attitude. And that there is really no reason to take these photos offensive. Especially when women can just as easily make similar photos about men. But I agree with the main points of this comment.
I agree. I think it's time to turn the jokes on them, haha. I think it depends on the type of person and how sensitive they are to this type of stuff. Some may think that it is hilarious. Some may be highly offended.
I agree! Its all in good fun to make these jokes but how they actually effect you, is up to you. In my opinion i think some of the jokes are funny.. lol and women can retaliate and put jokes right back at the men if they have a good spirit about it. Like i said they're just jokes and men have made them in good fun just to aggravate the women of society.
In a way Lauren I believe you are right but in others I don't. Memes like these shouldn't be taken as anything more than a joke. I believe that gender has nothing to do with any type of superiority. But on the other hand I think that these do not degrade women in any way they are funny and should be taken that way by anyone with that kinda of sense of humor. I think that it is only actually bad or degrading when people take it wrong and cause feuds and arguments trying to go against these jokes even though nothing is going to stop them from being made because like I said before they are funny.
I feel like women are viewed with more respect then people think they are. Just because people make jokes about women, doesn't mean that's how they are really viewed. Now obviously these memes have a negative impact on women doesn't mean that that is exactly how they are viewed. But it's just a joke. And I personally believe that people take jokes to seriously.
Yep agreed, like to me these are just jokes and I never took offense to any of them. I think I didn't simply because we aren't treated this way, men are more respective of women then they are of other men definitely. If someone finds these pictures offensive then I believe they are just looking for a reason to get sympathy for themselves because everyone knows that mostly all men don't perceive women in these ways.
I mean sometimes I guess women could take it offensive. It just depends on the way women think of things because us guys look at it differently. Most of the time we take it as a joke but women on the other hand take take a lot more seriously than we do.
Sexism isn't a big thing it's mainly humor some people accept things as criticism instead of comedy!
I wouldn't necessarily say that sexism isn't a, "big thing" or not a problem, because it is. Maybe not as noticeable in the United States, but in other countries such as India or Honduras, it is. My second time in Guatemala, I helped in the clinic some. There was a man and his wife and the wife needed surgery. Do you know what the man said? "I would have to sell one of my cows. I will find another wife instead." If that isn't a, "big thing" then I don't know what is. Is that considered comedy? That all over the world women are degraded and struggling to get an education so they don't have to be stereotypical and rely on a man to provide for them. Families send boys to school instead of the girls. The girls in the family grow up taking care of younger siblings and doing housework, just sending them back into the cycle of poverty! In China, boys are more valuable than girls. It's less common to see a boy adopted from China than a girl, unless the boy is physically or mentally deformed. Even in history, Henry the 8th wanted a male heir because he didn't think a daughter could rule as well as a son could. Why do you think men got away with raping women in parts of India for so long? Because over there along with many other places around the globe, women are WORTHLESS. They are viewed as nothing more than objects!!! Do you realize that some women still get paid less than men for doing the same job?? I know that in my comment I said that I find the memes funny, but I don't agree with sexism not being present in today's society. So I'm not trying to be a hypocrite, but this response is mainly directed towards your statement that "Sexism isn't a big thing, and people should take it as a joke". My argument was aimed just at the memes and whether or not if women are perceived that way today. Sexism IS a big thing today Austin, and there is NOTHING humorous about it.
I agree with Grace that sexism is an issue; however, generally speaking, in the United States women are treated fairly. Therefore I find the stereotypes kind of funny. People joke about things equally as bad as sexism or worse. But I do understand that in some cases one should not joke about degrading women.
I think that memes like this don't really have a impact. Women are hardheaded and aren't going to let some silly thing make a big impact on their life's. but yeah I think that that's truly how women are perceived.
There will always be racism and sexism in this world. We are simply and utterly human. As to the memes being offensive, I think it all depends on the female looking at them. One may find them funny and another, degrading. Personally I find the memes funny. The fact is, women were objectified in the past. They were good for cooking, cleaning, and taking care of children. The memes shown aren't necessarily directed towards the population of females today, but the women of the past. Also, I mean the more time that passes, the more that the stereotype of women will change and then become normal. An example would be single mothers. In the past is was frowned upon to be a single mom. Now single mothers account for a lot of family units. Society molds sexism over time.
Very nicely said Grace!
This answer is how I feel about the subject exactly. People will always make fun of other peoples differences because that's just human nature. You can either take them seriously or just laugh and go on.
I think only jerks and heartless people perceive women that way. I think they create a negative impact on women. Although, if people don't take them seriously then they probably have a positive or no impact. It all just depends on the person. I personally believe women can do a lot of things, just like men can.
honestly i believe that these pictures have nothing to do with the way women are treated today in society. of course there are always going to be people that think they are better than everyone else, but that goes for both men and women. i think women in this society are recieving more respect as time goes on. but these pictures can be portrayed in many different ways, some people take it offensively, and others just find it humorous. people are always going to have different opinions, but i think that people shouldnt take the pictures offensively, because women are treated better than they are portrayed in these memes.
I agree with Raven. These memes have nothing to do with how women are treated in our society. There will be those kinds of people who think themselves better then others. My self personaly try to take a humorous or positive out look on most things in life. Thous i find these memes to be more humorous then negative.
Personally I think the only people who look at women in that kind of way are either immature, or brainless. By normal people, at least, this isn't how women are perceived. But there's room to joke about anything in certain contexts. I'm a firm believer in joking about whatever you like, as long as it's not a direct insult to someone who's nearby. I don't think memes/jokes like this have too much of an effect, or really an effect at all. But that's just my opinion.
I fully agree, it's true that women are not always treated equally but in all honestly, no one is treated equally. We tend to think everyone is but in this world there's not such thing as that in my belief. Everyone is gonna be made fun of, you just have to deal with it.
I think that sometimes women are perceived like housewives and are the ones that are supposed to do all the work. I believe that is a bunch of crap because if guy claims that he is the guy he says he is then he would work just as hard as a woman. I think it can cause a negative impact if guys begin to portray women like that and don't actually know that those memes are jokes.
I do not believe women are perceived in this image. These pictures are simply just jokes even guys have jokes like these written about them. I do however believe there is a point where the jokes can go to far and instead of it being funny, it becomes something negative. I know however most people will agree with me in saying that these are just jokes and not ment to be taken literally. People just need to realize that we can joke around like in those pictures and not take offense.
I agree that these are just jokes and some people take them too seriously. Some people do take it too far and that's where it needs to stop though. But people just have to face the reality that these joke are going to stay around and they might as well get used to it.
I agree, I think these picture are just jokes. Sometimes people will take things the wrong way and will be hurt by the jokes. Therefore, people should watch what they say so no one gets hurt.
Everyone makes jokes about someone who is different from them. Black people have racist jokes against white people, and white people have jokes about them. Just because people joke about things, doesn't mean they're true. Hence the name "joke". If they were actually true, they would be called facts. So with this being said, I do not think women are perceived this way.
I actually do think that SOME men precieve wemon in this way today. They consider us the weaker sex and the more needy of the two. You can see it everyday the men are nicer to women then they are to other men they look at women like the frail speices and feel as if they need to help us, but I think this generation doesn't expect the women to 'slave' the men if you will we are more independent expected to have jobs.
p.s I don't find any of these pictures to be offensive and the main picture I was talking about in the previous post was the one with ryan gosling.
I agree with you. Some men perceive women like the pictures depict. Is it right for them to do that? No, absolutely not. Some people do think women are the weaker sex but that necessarily isn't true. Some women take on the leadership role in the family and that makes them strong.
I think some people might perceive women in this way but I wouldn't say many do. Regardless of whom or what a joke might be about, people will always get offended. In some cases the memes might have a negative effect but they really shouldn't. Everybody should just enjoy humor and not get offended.
To some people in society can view women this way. But then again others don't. The only reason people get mad about these kind of jokes, can't take a joke. The handful of people that are like this are the ones that cause huge problems for everyone else.
I agree with you Brennan. I don't think that all people see it this way. I know I don't. I hope most people don't. there are those people out there that do though and it agrivates the heck out of me.
I think that women are precieved this way not by other women but mostly by men. Why the heck should a female have to make a man a sandwich? Um, HELLO! He can do it himself he has hands. The glass cieling is a very real thing but it's not the fact that women do less work than men that they get payed less it's that in the early 1900's women were only house wives, rarely career women. Women work just as hard or harder than men in most jobs because of their determination. And I don't even want to get started on the other meme. I dislike memes and I don't think they have any impact on me personally but I just think they're stupid.
I believe that people do perceive these pictures as jokes. Although, I also believe that some people create or say these types of jokes but actually mean what they're saying. In other words, I think that they're saying that they're joking just so they don't get judged for what they actually think is true. I also believe that most people do perceive these as jokes only.
I believe that some people perceive women in our society like this. This isn't how they should be treated but some people don't know any better. Some people have grown up believing that women are only good for housework and nothing more. I personally don't believe this but there will always be sexism in our world.Anybody can do anything that they put their heart into.
I think that women are perceived badly, some men think that a woman can't do what a man can do and even though society has changed and a woman can do more than just be a housewife there still is a negative impact , like male workers get paid more than a woman and that woman could be a better worker but then again most of those comments are jokes and shouldn't be taken seriously some of them should just be left alone and unsaid
I do not think that this is the way that women are precieved by everybody. I mean I don't feel this way about women. yes I mean I have read this and laughed but I'm not going to go up to woman and say hey go make me a sandwich. while these jokes are funny we don't need to take them to far. like I have seen boys wearing shirts that say funny story babe now go make me a sandwich, even I look at it and I am like dude that is too far.
I honestly don't think that this is how women are truly perceived. They are just childish jokes that have become funny. Same applied for the opposite sex. Although, I'm sure that there are some men out there that actually do perceive women this way. Some people take it to a whole different level.
I don't think many people take these memes very seriously. I see these as just jokes because there are plenty of jokes about men or any other group of people. You just have to laugh and go on. I don't sit and ponder something as irrelevant as a meme and let it effect how I think. So no, I don't believe this is how women are perceived today or that these memes have any impact whatsoever.
I totally agree with Wyatt. When I read the memes I just kinda laughed. Some people on the other hand take them offensively. I don't think that they are something to get upset about. I think people say stuff like that just because people have said stuff along those lines for so long that they think people dont care.
I fully agree with Wyatt, women aren't really perceived in that way now days. It just all depends on the person who sees this type of jokes, some will take it to the extreme when others will just laugh along with it and move along. It honestly just depends on the person. I do find the jokes funny but in no way would I ever view a lady in that form as joke.
Yes I think that this is the way women are perceived to today. I don't nesseccarily think that that's true. Women work just as hard as men do and they still get treated unequally. I also think it has a negative effect on woman. Men think that women don't do anything and don't work as hard as them.
I don't think women are perceived this way. Sure guys will joke around and be a little sexist. But, women joke around about men too. Whether it be a "man look" where you cant find something but don't really look for it or whatever. I think society is the fairest its ever been towards women and they can do just about anything a man can do. But there are also things women can do but men can't always do.
I think that in the past women have perceived as a lower class. However we have come a long way since then. I think that these memes are funny, and I don't take them offensively. I'm sure there are people out there that do take offense o thing like this. However I do not.
I do not think these pictures acurately reflect how women are perceived in today's society. Also, I do not think they are taken seriously, they are just stereotypes that are continually proven wrong. Personally I do not take offense to them.
I believe that sexism is over dramatic nonsense for the most part. People, for the most part men, don't really think that males are superior to females. I think these are mainly jokes that sometimes men take too far, and women take too seriously. I don't believe that men are superior to women, and I believe that everyone else should feel them same.
Sexism is often taken for a bad joke. I could tell a sandwich joke right now and would a girl be offended? Yes and no. Some girls laugh, some girls hate. It's all taken upon by the minds deception. Sexism isn't always a bad thing though. For instance. If a guy works at a hair salon and is doing a girls nails its most likely not going to look great. It'll come out looking a little funny. We don't have sturdy hands. Admit it. We can't do nails. Why am I talking about nails.
I don't think that this is how women are really perceived by most people. Yes, there are some I'm this world who believe men are better than women. I believe that this is very wrong of them to think, but that is just my opinion. Depending on who believes what, the impact can be positive or negative. It all just depends.
I believe that jokes like these are funny. I don't believe that any women should ever take them seriously. Like any other joke that actually makes anyone laugh, normally they are about a certain race, gender, or just vulgar. Any joke should be considered just that, a joke, no more, no less. I believe that if taken as strictly as a joke the way it was originally intended then it will not affect women in any way, if anything they should laugh along.
I believe that these are just jokes and girls are not perceived that way in our society. I mean its just as easy to make a joke about a girl as it is for a guy. I thinknevery joke we make as a guy a girl can make one just as bad. It's just a joke or a stereotype but nobody should take it to heart. Sexism is just taken to harsh or just overblown. To make a problem.
I think it is very wrong to look at women and think they are not as "strong" or independent as men. Females can do things just as well as males, sometimes better. Males expect so much from the females. However, I don't think people are as sexist as they used to be, after a while I feel like everyone will be equal.
I don't think it has much of an affect. In all honesty, I think sexism isn't a big part of our society anymore. People used to discriminate against women, but a lot of powerful people now are women. Women have just as good a chance of being somebody as men do. I don't think sexism is that big of a deal in today's society.
I swear if Mrs. Cintra doesn't come back I'm gonna lose it on these subs!
I think that it really isnt a big deal to anyone. Girls joke about it just as much as boys do. I find it amusing actually, because we know thats how it used to be. Women and Men arent exactly equal but in most cases they are. Sexism is a big deal. We arent way back in the day when Women stayed home while the men worked.
Yes their jokes, and women shouldn't get mad about it. I mean they have jokes about men too. But also the thing is that some women do get treated bad and for them it isn't funny at all, as well as men. Buts it's a joke, nobody should take it seriously.
Women today aren't really looked at like this. This is Just a simple joke. We all know that a woman can go just about anything a man can do. Just because were women doesn't make us any less capable of doing work.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
