    In an Iron Man 2 movie cover found on the Amazon website, there are four people on the poster. Specifically, there are two men and two women. The men are positioned above the women and are dressed in suits. Both women appear to be wearing tight, form-fitting clothes. While the men are wearing sharp suits that seem to emphasizes their size. The women’s clothes seems to be used to play up their beauty, while the men’s’ seems to be to enhance their powerful look. The background is mostly black with two different Iron Men positioned behind the four people. The men are in the center of the cover, while the women are near the sides. An interesting aspect of this poster is that everyone is wearing dark clothing. The men and women are all wearing black clothing which could indicate that on the outside, men and women are similar.

The background is a gloomy, cloudy sky that is paired with an extreme foreground of a man surrounded by a fireball. The man is standing on a very dirty environment that seems to be covered in sand. This could indicate that the man is lower class and he is poor. These contrast each other significantly and bring out the middle of the poster involving the four people. The poster seems to direct all attention to the men, specifically Robert Downey Jr. (RDJ). He is positioned in the center of the poster, and he is wearing a commanding outfit complete with…

When it does appear in my social media,…

    simply a culture of sexism, as many write it off to be, and that radical views like those of extreme feminists are partly to blame. She hastily concedes the point that some guys are clearly jerks and are out to cause trouble. However, she then goes on to say that there are some serious side effects with politically correct terms that women promote like ¨gender equality¨, where men and women are supposed to be treated the same and therefore act the same.
