    1-I would say that people have stereotypes because of the TV, the radio, and the media. People have stereotypes because they are influenced by the society, because we are manipulated or because we were educated since we were babys. The stereotypes, is also caused because of the culture, society or grown ambient. All because of the influence and the characteristics that society expects to be like.
    2- think this investigation was a good idea, because it makes people reflect about how we can change the world to be a better place by stopying the steryotypes and discrimination. This investigation was a good idea because we can know that somehow we are influenced by the society, directly or indirectly.
    3- To stop this problem we can protest and going on strikes. So there it would be more equality. We can help by listening to them, respecting them and protesting for equality and not discriminate only for be woman.
    4- When a baby is born, if it’s a girl is expected to behave in a delicate way, to be very feminine, she’s expected to like dolls, pink things and wear makeup or things like that. On the other hand, boys are expected to like and play sports, being not delicate at all and play with things like cars, this are call stereotypes

    1) in my opinion the people have stereotypes because is something of the culture. The question is: is it good for children to apply these predefined styles or should we change that way of seeing children?
    2) I think that the investigation it’s a great idea because the people realize that they are doing something wrong
    3) The only way is to listen to womens, respect them and give them their time.
    4) the only way is by destroying the stereotypes

    1) I would say that people have stereotypes because of the TV, the radio, and the media. These put thing in our mind and then we probably think we have to be only one way and we might judge people that is not like the stereotype.
    2) Yes because it show us the stereotypes that we have as a society
    3) On the one hand, we can help making visible the different kinds of people and not just the people who are like the stereotype. We can do this by sharing posts on the social media and stopping the bullies that bother people that is not like the stereotype.
    On the other hand, we have to accept and respect different people, talk to friends and think why we are have to be like someone else and not ourselves.
    4) When a baby is born, if it’s a girl is expected to behave in a delicate way, to be very feminine, she’s expected to like dolls, pink things and wear makeup or things like that. On the other hand, boys are expected to like and play sports, being not delicate at all and play with things like cars. I think that we can change it letting the kids play with whatever they want, to let them choose for themselves and not judging them for it. But, we can also say that the society had already change a bit from how it was before, and has made some changes about the things we said before, and that is good because the next generation will be even more free than we are now.

    1) I think people have esteriotypes because we treat children like that since they were born. For example, if you have a baby boy you buy him a blue cloth and also some "boys toys" and if it is a girl you buy her pink cloth and dolls because you don't even think on buying a boy a pink shirt or buying a girl some cars.

    2)I think it was a good idea because it showed people that babys have not esteriotypes and baby boys can play with dolls and have a lot of fun.

    3) we can help them by protestimg and showing new generations that they are equals and we don't have to discrimitate them.

    4) we can change it by letting babys to choose their own toys and clothes.

    1) I think people have this stereotype because they were educated like this, for example: football is for boy and hockey is for women.

    2) I think that the investigation was a great idea because we can figure out how people think and preconceptions about gender.

    3) We can help by respecting them and listening them and giving some opinions and ideas.

    4) It’s called stereotypes. We can change it by accepting that children can choose which toys to play or what clothes to wear.
  • Bautista hace aproximadamente un año
    People have stereotipes because they can't accepted that we are the same

    It is a good idea because they make people who use stereotipes not use them anymore

    We can help bringing help and listening the people who are discriminated

    we can change it if we let babies play with the toys they want without discriminating

    1) Why do you think people have stereotypes?
    I think that people have steryotypes, because of the society.
    For example: We can see that in some announcement we watch in the TV, normally who used the cleaning products are women.
    2) Do you think this investigation was a good idea?
    I think this investigation was a good idea, because it makes people reflect about how we can change the world to be a better place by stopying the steryotypes and discrimination.
    3) How can we help?
    We can help by protesting and respecting people opininons and thought.
    4) When a baby is born, he or she is expected to behave in a certain way approved by society.
    What is it and How can we change it?
    We can change it by let babies play with the toys they want, and don't judge them.

    1) People have stereotypes because they are influenced by the society, because we are manipulated or because we were educated since we were babys. The stereotypes, is also caused because of the culture, society or grown ambient. We should wear blue if we are boys, and we should wear pink if we are girls. All because of the influence and the characteristics that society expects to be like.
    2) This investigation was a good idea because we can know that somehow we are influenced by the society, directly or indirectly. This is because the video shows us that boys should play with cars and girls with dolls. And finally this experiment was great because we can notice that we are stuck with the idea and the stereotypes that society think is correct in our unconscious. This is because we are taught since our childhood.
    3) To achieve gender equality, we can: get across the message to people, to children and communities of any type. And we can attend to campaigns.
    4) Yes, because of different ideology's for example, pink for girls and blue for boys, men working to earn money and women working for taking care of children. We can change this by teaching young people about diversity, giving opportunities to children, choosing what they want and finally respecting and make people conscious about their belief and ideology.

    1-We think that the stereotypes are created by the society, and people used to live with them. Maybe the most common features in a person is what society catch and put like a stereotype. Although it is pretty beautiful to have a thin body, or to wear pink clothes if you are a girl, and blue if you are a boy, it is very nice and amazing to be fat, that is great and it is not ugly, or to wear different clothes. If you feel good with the things you do, with your body and with the way you choose for live your life, it is ok. It is not important what the people think of you, only what you think.

    2-We think the experiment was a good idea, because in this way, people who are used to stereotypes (because they were raised like that), will start to have a more open mind, and will stop thinking for example ; that pink and long hair are for girls, and that blue and short hair are for boys.

    3- We can help by listening to them, respecting them and protesting for equality and not discriminate only for be woman.

    4- It is called stereotypes. We can changed it by considering everyone as an equal and not considering that because is a boy or a girl they should act differently.

    1. We think that people have stereotypes because were raised with stereoypes for some years ago and for some people it's still hard to realize how much things have changed.
    2. Yes, we think the experiment was a good idea.
    3. We can help by listening to them, giving them some advice and ask if they need help.
    4. We can change it by letting children and people be theirselves without judging them and supporting them about what they want to wear, behave and do with their life (career and job).

    1)Because the stereotypes are already linked to society, and the parents transmit it to the boys and if they remain
    2)yes, it was a good idea, because it opened the minds of many people, and showed us how most people think
    3) The only way is to listen to womens, respect them and give them their time.
    4) the only way is by destroying the stereotypes

    ESI CLASS: GENDER DESIQUALITY
    1) People have stereotypes because they were raised to think that only boys can play football (for example).
    2) I think that the investigation was a great idea because it makes people realize that they are doing something wrong.
    3) To stop this problem we can protest and going on strikes. This solution would benefit the future generations, by making aware the governments, so all (girls and boys), could have a good education for their decision for their future. So there it would be more equality.
    4) When a baby is born, it is identified as a woman or a man, depending on this and other factors such as nationality, stereotypes are created of what that child should do and should not do. This is wrong because each one decides how he is and what he wants or what he likes. We could change this by teaching people, especially the older adults that everyone can do what they want and be how they want.

    1) For me people have stereotypes because they were educated with them, that's why they transmit them.
    2) I think the investigation was a really good idea to open the mind of people who transmit stereotypes.
    3) We can help by listening to other people about how they feel and don't leave alone them.
    4) We can change this by accepting that a baby can decide on his/her own wich toy to play with.
  • Franco hace 2 años
    1) People have stereotypes because people already assume without knowing people that it is in a way that is not.
    2) Yes, because it shows what it is to live with stereotypes and how bad it can be.
    3) We can help by asking those people who suffer from stereotypes if they are like that and demonstrate to people that they are not like that and stop believing that they are that way.
    4) We can change it by showing that babies can behave as they want as long as it doesn't break the law.

    1) I think that the people have this stereotypes because it is a stereotype applied for quite some time and in our culture that is already predefined, the question is: is it good for children to apply these predefined styles or should we change that way of seeing children?

    2)Yes, it is a very good idea and it had results that I did not expect.

    3) We can help asking to the people that is in this situation if they need help.

    4)Asking to children and girls how they want to dress and play,what they want to do with her life and what type of life or job they want have.

    -For us people have stereotypes because they raise them like this, for example saying that pink is for girls and blue is for boys.

    -Yes, because it shows how people realize that they live with stereotypes.


    -We can help by listening to people, asking them how they feel and if they need help.

    -Demonstrating that babies are not a color like that girls wear pink but they can choose what to play with and dress
