Hi,everyone! How are you all doing? I’m doing pretty okay, I must say. So in my last post, I asked you guys a question and so many of you answered! Thank you so much 🙂 Today I’m going to tell you what’s it was all about XD
In Psychology, we are doing stereotyping and prejudice which is so interesting. I don’t know if it’s the subject or the teacher. I have a new american teacher as the other one is on maturity leave and had this cute little alien thing. My american teacher (let’s call her Mrs B) is the best and she makes the lessons so much more interesting than the other teacher I had.
Anyway, Mrs B asked us to do this experiment and to find out if genders of the baby affect the results of the participants (you) describing the baby. I ask you on my blog to describe a baby boy and outside of my blog, I asked family members to describe a baby girl.
I found out that the gender of the baby I give you, changes the words that you pick. Whenever I said to describe a baby boy, people gave the answers like ‘handsome’ and ‘alert.’ Whenever I said to describe a baby girl, people gave the answers like ‘pretty’ and ‘delicate.’
So why is that?
Well, our society teaches us that boys and girls are different. I guess that’s true as we both have different down below parts and well girls have boobs (so do boys but most not as big). But other than that, we’re not. We are still human beings.
But all of us stereotype, even I do.I try not to but I do.
Girls aren’t delicate. We are as strong as boys.
Boys are as clever as girls.
So why, in our society, still carry on with the stereotyping in out culture?
Tell me what you think in the comments below 🙂
