This " gender stereotyping" that is shown through commercials is offensive. It seems as though two messages are being sent. Boys: reach for the stars you can become, a pro wrestler, monster truck driver, a dark knight. Practically everything that isn't a likely possibility. While as the gender discrimination for ladies is much more serious. At a young age the toy commercials, and the toys, are presenting the "mother hood". Young girls at the age of just 4 or 5 are already learning how to cook, clean, change babies diapers, and all the everyday apparent "women" roles through these toys. It shows me that boys are being pushed to reach for that over the fence, world series kind of life. Where the girls are being thrown into the gutter, and being trained to become something that will most likely happen anyways. For example: Baby alive, a doll that eat, drinks, and wets. This doll is so lifelike that young children feel they are actually taking care of a young baby. How is this fair? When little boys play with Ninjas, and dream of being astronauts. The little girls are cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry. The messages being sent are gender stereotyped, and wrong. If a person from another world was to come to earth, and see our commercials, I believe they would have the complete wrong perspective about us. As a person that will most likely one day have children, I feel the messages being sent through toys need to come to a big red stop sign.
