Brooks Boatright's Expectations Of Men And Women

Decent Essays
The cartoon is expressing that women go into deeper thought about situations than men. It's representing the fact that women know what they want, but men feel a certain way for merely a moment. Brooks Boatright goes on to say "This is relevant to understanding the expectations of men and women in society simply because it proves that women are better listeners than men", and I agree with him. Women expect more from men because we fail to communicate properly and understand what they want. If we listened and understood how crazy they actually were, we probably would have second thoughts about staying with them. Women tend to more focused and less distractible than men usually are. Communication is important in a relationship, and that's way

    If a friendship is more one sided, it will normally not last and cannot be considered a true friendship. Also, some men believe themselves to be dominant to women, but that idea is greatly changing. Today, men and women are thought to be more as equals. More women are stepping into the career fields that are mostly male dominant, and more men are working in women dominated fields.

    Women can be in deep, emotional relationships with one another, while men risk tampering with their masculinity and fear judgement. On the other hand, men are ideologically more intelligent and naturally have more support, while women have to fight for it. Still, when they are successful, they are rebelling against the ideology, while a smaller success for men is a large failure. Whether someone is a man or a woman, there are social issues that come with both, which is why it is understandable that one might want to live outside of the gender norm.

This does not go to say that all women are exactly as Sarah was in the skit, but it can show that women do want to be a part of the dominant group even though they are still pushed out. Sarah’s group was important to the skit because they were able to show the way social hierarchy tends to force people into place, especially when they try to…

    As women, we either play into mens wants of us, or we do not follow the rules. This really defines our relations with men. When we act a babe, we devalue ourselves but we are praised by men. When we refuse to be stupefied, we are considered a bitch. Kimmel states, “To be taken seriously as a competent individual means minimizing, or even avoiding altogether, the trappings of femininity” (252).…

    The strange marriage phenomenon is used for the study of male preference because it eliminates any restriction women may have in finding a potential mate because they have no freedom to say yes or no. After analyzing the findings of Sohn I agree with the theory that has been developed, but don’t entirely agree with it because it leaves out homosexual couples. In today’s world, homosexual couples, as well as marriages, are becoming more acceptable and they need to be taken into consideration. These findings may be completely accurate for men seeking female mates, but for the men seeking male mates could be potentially all wrong. Age may not play a factor when it comes to men seeking male mates and these are things that need to be taken into consideration.…

    As it is very common in today’s generation for women to get temporary lip, and nose lifting fillers. I believe it is unacceptable for our society to lose respect towards women and to use them as a platform to make money off of. In comparison, men have it easier as they are viewed and judged upon their actions. For instance if a man treats a woman well he is a gentleman, if he doesn’t treat a woman well he is viewed as an ill-mannered human. Another huge example is Kylie Jenner.…

The purpose of the second study was to extend the findings of the first study as it relates to the likeability of women in industries typically considered a male domain. The hypothesis for study 2 was that while women would be deemed less likeable in these situations, this effect would be mitigated in an industry considered feminine or neutral. Results from this study, which had the same experimental procedure as study 1, provided support for this hypothesis, and the authors suggest that this results from violation of gender norms because men were also subjected to prejudice when successful in stereotypical feminine domain. The authors were careful to point out that form this prejudice takes and the actual repercussions are likely different for men than for women, because men are more likely to be disrespected while women were most likely to be disliked (Heilman et al., 2004).…
