Argumentative Essay: Why Doesn T Women Drive?

Improved Essays
Why can’t women drive? Because there isn’t a road between the bedroom and the kitchen. I agree with comedian George Carlin, on many issues, like the fact that god has to be a man. No woman could have screwed up as badly as God, so he has to be a man! Not only that, but we agree that women are crazy and men are stupid. But, its men 's stupidity that drives a woman crazy. So next time you accuse a female of being crazy, check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Now, think about how you just felt. Insulted? Offended? Even discriminated against? These aren’t good feelings, and men don’t have to deal with these feeling as often as women do. But women can channel these feelings into positive change such as to fuel the inspiration to become

We are just too used to seeing women as objects that we don’t even notice it anymore. While that may be true, it is also true that there is still sexism in the advertisements, it just shifted from women being dumb and only good for cooking into women are only good for being sexual objects for a man 's pleasure. In ads, you can see a woman being sexualises, objectified. In clothing ads, she is practically naked, not even wearing the clothing. In fact Burger King has an ad where there is a women. We see her profile, for she is standing to the side, her mouth open. Directly in front of her is a submarine sandwich. The caption of this picture? It’ll blow your mind away. The sexism is still there, it didn’t go away. It just changed into something more subtle. But even though it is more subtle, it is worse than ever before. Women are being objectified for the male 's pleasure. Things that should be marketed towards women, are being marketed to men. Because of the belief that men are the superior …show more content…
You throw like a girl! Grow a pair! These are all phrases we have heard, and they have a common idea, do not be a girl. For a man, the worse thing to be called is a girl, and the same for women. To say there is no sexism toward men would be an untrue statement. For there is sexism towards men. But even though it is towards men, it is based off womens stereotypes, meaning it is truly still against women. In divorces, men end up getting totally screwed, for they have to pay for their lawyer, wife 's lawyer, and give her wife half of everything. Why is this? It is because women are believed to be housewives and not working humans. Women do not get paid as much as men do, because their employers still believe that they are just silly housewives. When it comes to custody of children, women usually get the majority. And yes, this is sexism towards men, but once again it is truly for women. Women are seen as emotional and maternal people, basically nurtures. Some human see women as people who don’t, or shouldn’t work and just stay home with the kids and take of the house. Because of this view, men don’t get that much time with their children in divorces because of this sexism towards women. Because while men are being discriminated against, it is all caused by sexism towards women, proving how we need

    To be a woman is to be simultaneously hypersexualized and shamed for the sexualization. It is to be called a “prude” if it is rejected while also being called a “whore” if it used as a source of empowerment. There is no middle ground because this sexualization does not stem from women, but from men. Patriarchal power has continually forced upon women what they believe a woman should be, which often is the opposite of man. Femininity is considered to be bipolar of the masculine, so they assume that to be a woman is to lack male desires and characteristics.…

    She has no desire to treat men as equals, which is what men respect, her male mentality. Believing that her certain sex is superior is a quality that men share and understand and in turn respect. Beyoncé begins her song by saying “Make your check come at they neck, disrespect us no they wont.” Here she is taking a shot at the media’s viewpoint of women. As also stated in the media clips “Killing Us Softly” and “Women’s representation in Media” the media often degrades women who use their bodies to be successful, yet claiming in a negative way that is the only way they may gain power. As seen in the case of Caster Semanya, once male build is taken from men and given to women, the women is not given power but rather is ridiculed for not being feminine enough.…

    The word itself is a representation of the double standard of sexuality. It’s saying that if a woman has the sexual morals of a man she is trash. This word is not only offensive to women, but to men, because if a woman is “bad” for having the morals of a man, than men must have bad morals. Psycologytoday.com states, “women are judged more harshly than men for engaging in some behaviors, especially when those behaviors are casual sex or sex with lots of partners. Men are studs for doing it, but women are sluts” (Psycologytoday.com).…

    As a result, the advertisement supports gender stereotypes by perpetuating males with domineering attitudes while women are left to be passive and helpless. Although the woman may appear to be allowing this kind of behavior, this is only portraying the woman as a target due to her feminine figure being shown in a degrading manner. She is viewed as less than due to the position she is in, all the men are overlooking her and she quickly becomes the target for the men. Jean Kilbourne in the article "Two Ways a Woman Can Get Hurt" goes into great detail explaining how advertisements can affect females in society. Kilbourne states that "It is hard for girls not to learn self-hatred in an environment in which there is such widespread and open contempt for women and girls."…

    Due to all of this, both women and men who want change, are put down and called ugly as a way to decrease self esteem and oppress them. This kind of attitude toward the subject of feminism takes away from men’s benefits as well. Men are forced into a gender role where anything to do with emotion, sensitivity, and feelings are looked at as weakness and are deemed as unfit Tarrant (2013). Tarrant (2013) best talks about gender and how people are not born being either masculine or feminine. Gender is not binary and because so many people think it is, it is not acceptable for men have real human emotions because the emotionality lies with the women.…

    Dr. Gregory also advises women to stop expanding their knowledge if they intend to get married because men find educated women to be unattractive and abrasive. Wollstonecraft blatantly opposes this piece of advice and continues to support her belief that an educated woman makes a better wife and mother. According to Dr. Gregory’s advice a marriage is a system of slavery and as women slaves are incapable of attaining their virtue. For reason to rule the household, arbitrary power must be eliminated – both men and women are fully capable of reason as their souls are the same. Women’s tyrannical behavior is simply a response to the oppression of their husbands and these behaviors can be completely avoided if women are not seen as the “submissive charms” and given the same educational opportunities as their male…

    The sexist stereotype of women not working as hard as men causes girls to feel inferior. Women are often encouraged or just expected to be home makers and clean, cook, and raise the children. Although this work is viewed as subordinate, their work is still just that – hard work. In “A Question of Class”, Dorothy Allison tells the reader, “when the women in my family talked about how hard they worked, the men would spit to the side and shake their heads” (Allison 1). This example shows how women are looked at as inferior since domestic work is not considered real work by society, while the men work outside of the home and bring home the money.…

    The quote exemplifies the paradox of gender inequality in the novel: The women are seen as weak while men do all of the work, yet when the men are weak, the women deal with their hardships “humbly”. This was not the extent of the inequality, though. The women are judged for their lifestyle choices, and yet men who made the same choices are accepted immediately. Sissy is seen as a bad person because of her promiscuity and her multiple marriages, so much so that Katie feels the need to move neighborhoods to escape her sister’s shame, yet none of the men Sissy had married were…

    It was surprising to me that fifty years ago, women were stereotyped so heavily and that it was accepted in the society. They made the stereotype of a woman working in a business so strong that it seems unrealistic and just irritating to watch. It was strange to see women portray as being stupid and incompetent at their job or even accepting to roles they had in their life. It bothered me that a fast food restaurant would have a woman in a bikini at a beach just eat a burger, but in a sexual way. Objectification of women took part in the commercial just to attract men.…

    Thyona is very manipulative when it comes down to her sisters, she can tell them to do something because she knows best for them and they will listen. Thyona is what society calls a misandrist (is the hatred or dislike of men or boys) this comes from what people have experienced with men, which may have been traumatizing or unforgiveable. Radical feminists have been accused of misandry although other feminists have criticized this, describing it as a "lazy and insidious" culture within the feminist movement. So Thyona can be described as a radical feminist. According to The Feminist Criticism, Thyona would be considered a “bad girl”; I say this because “bad girls are considered females who violate patriarchal sexual norms in some way.”…
