This paper is a summary of the Youtube video, “Men and Women’s Brains” by Mark Gunger. It is very funny but educational at the same time. In this video Mr. Gunger explains how men have boxes in their brain. The rule is that the boxes do not touch. When a man talks about something he has to dig deep into his mind to find that one specific box, while only discussing what is in that one specific box. He also informs us that stress is something that happens and forms very differently in men’s brains versus women’s brains. Men don’t like to talk about stress. However, women want to talk about it, figure it out and get in the man’s brain of what he could possibly be stressed about.
The first thing I drew from watching this video was how truthful it was. Yes, it was quite humorous watching it, but it was true about both the men and women. There are boxes in a man’s mind. The rule is that the boxes do not touch. When a man talks about something he has to dig deep into his mind to find that one specific box, while only discussing what is in that one specific box. Then the box is closed, not to be opened again for a while. Women are very different about how their brains are. Women’s brains are attached and connected to everything. He says that women’s brains are “driven by emotion.” He said that is why women can remember more things and events than men. Men do the same process, just not as often. I thought this was right on track. I know that’s how my brain works. The speaker also talks about how women care about everything. For example, he explains how men don’t like to talk about when they are stressed out while women always want to. Everywhere you go today, or even at home you see the women of the household talking about their problems. As well as the video being truthful, I also found that it helped me understand the way the male and female work. Next, I realized how the brains of men and women commonly work. Once again, the speaker used humor to explain this. The “Nothing Box” is their favorite. That is why men can just sit there doing nothing all day. University of Pennsylvania did a study that men have the power to think about absolutely nothing and still breathe. The mind of a man is short and sweet. He doesn’t like to talk about much, and avoids many different topics that he doesn’t want to talk about, and tries to stay away from them as much as possible. The woman on the other hand, likes to talk about literally everything. Although I hate to admit it, I feel that it is true at times. I always like to talk about what is on my mind. Stress is also something that is different in women versus men’s brain. Men don’t like to talk about stress. However, women want to talk about it, figure it out and get in the man’s brain of what he could possibly be stressed about. The author, Mr. Gunger says that women have to talk about stress or their brain will explode! That’s so true.
To conclude, I feel that this video, “Men and Women’s Brains” by Mark Gunger is very funny but educational at the same time. I like how Mr. Gunger can be informative about men and women’s brains, but at the same time he is humorous in the way he presents the information.

Gender Identity

...Is the Story of Mulan an inspirational tale to women or a subtle reminder by Disney about a woman’s place in society? One could say that they Disney princesses are all the same – Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty- they’re all tall, skinny, undeniably beautiful with their long flowing hair and fabulous gowns. They all play the damsel in distress, completely helpless to fend for themselves in the real world. They all await their happily ever after with the handsome prince charming. Mulan however, is different – or at least upon first glance appears to be. In the film, this young woman plays two opposing roles. On one hand, Mulan is the clumsy young woman, considered such an unfit bride that even the matchmaker considers there to be no hope for her “You are a disgrace, you may look like a bride but you will never bring your family honour...” On the other hand, she also plays Ping, the fearless young soldier who was loved by all, who grew from strength to strength and pretty much singlehandedly saved China from the invasion of the Huns. In order for Mulan to save her father from conscription she must give up her female self to pose as a man and join the army. This however, as far as Mulan is concerned, isn’t such a huge loss as she feels she really doesn’t fit in as a traditional Chinese woman. In the opening song she lists all that she is expected to be as a woman, as the perfect Chinese woman –......

Adolescent Girls and Their Problem

...current emphasis on excessive thinness for women is one of the clearest examples of advertisings power to influence us. Both culturally and individually. Now I’m certainly not saying that advertising is solely to be blamed for all of these. These stereotypes exist in every aspects of our lifes but there’s no aspect more pervasive or more persuasive than advertising. Research indicates that self esteem of girls in America plummets when they reach adolescence. This doesn’t happen to boys but it does to girls. Girls tend to feel fine about themselves when they are 8, 9, 10yo. But they reach adolescence and they hit a wall. And at least part of that wall seems to be this relentless emphasis on physical perfection that starts so early for girls. You cannot diet yourself to achieve the “acceptable” body type. Ladies Home Journal Issue: What are being sold here are the readers of the ladies Home Journal who are made to feel anxious about their weight and they are being sold to the diet industry. Obsession with thinness is used not only to sell diet products but also cigarettes. Educating that they should smoke instead of eat -> a way to avoid gain weight. Business of getting children addicted to nicotine to replace thousands of people who died. Images in advertising affect the reality of our lives. There is a tremendous amount of contempt for women who don’t measure up to the advertisers’ ideal of beauty. This is particularly true for women who are overweight. Media......

The advertisements are on TV, radio, and in magazines. It is nearly impossible to go one day without seeing one. The company spends millions of dollars on advertising their product each and every year to a number of different target audiences. In this advertisement McDonalds is advertising one of the value meals on their menu. The target audience that McDonalds is aiming the advertisement to is middle to upper-class people. It is very effective because it shows that the high class restaurants do not give people the quantity of food that they are paying for. The main feature of the advertisement is a man in a nice restaurant looking at his small portioned meal in disgust. In the bottom of the picture there is a larger portioned meal from McDonalds which is more food for only a fraction of the cost of the meal in the restaurant. The advertisement consists of a middle aged man sitting in a restaurant. On the table is the silverware arranged neatly on the table and a flower.

Larkin and Portrayal of Women

...“Larkin rarely presents women in a positive light” In the light of this statement, compare the ways in which Larkin writes about women in his poems. In many of Larkin’s poems, his presentation of women is often in a negative light. However, In Wild Oats, Broadcast and Talking in Bed it can be interpreted that Larkin portrays women in both a positive and negative light. For example in Wild Oats, Larkin seems to visually prefer the ‘bosomy rose’, however he goes out with the ‘friend in specs’, in Broadcast he describes his love for the woman compared with his love of music, and in Sunny Prestatyn he compares the vandalism of the poster girl with rape. In Wild Oats it can be interpreted that Larkin does present women in a positive light, as he describes the woman as a ‘bosomy English rose’. Here, Larkin uses a ‘rose’ to symbolise the woman, suggesting that Larkin finds her exceedingly beautiful and attractive; portraying women in a positive light as he appreciates and recognises their beauty. However, a contrast is established between the derogatory choice of word ‘bosomy’ and ‘rose’, which implies Larkin has a sexualised view of women, and that he sees them as sexual objects, therefore negatively portraying women. Also, Larkin describes ‘the friend in specs’ as being someone he could talk to. This is a negative portrayal of women as it suggests that she is inferior to the ‘bosomy rose’, and it also suggests Larkin is misogynist as he’s only talking to the ‘friend in specs’...

Its a Girl

...she had as she told her story, without guilt or regret, just no emotion at all. She believes women have the power to give life and the power to take it away. I disagree with that statement because each and every person has a right to live life and existence no matter what gender they are. Sadly, many baby girls are either aborted before birth, killed right after birth, or abandoned. If they live past puberty they become victims of neglect and abuse. I believe this is so unjust, especially me being a mother to a healthy beautiful little girl. I could never neglect or abuse her just because she is a girl, nor would I ever allow anyone else to. But in India, it's very different, the men are in control of the woman, considered property, and forced to have a male child. If a woman did not produce boys or dowry then they would be considered useless and either abused or killed. I understand that men from India have power over their women in this way, but without women or girls how will more boys be produced? In India they believe boys bring strength, blessing, and wealth, while girls bring dowry and burden. They believe families with sons gain wealth and daughters, while families with daughters lose wealth and daughters. About 100,000 women are murdered because they fail to produce sons for their husband's and in-laws were not satisfied with the dowry given to them. I agree with the many women who face these issues and feel they should end dowry and have the right to give life......

...Smalls, Jemell The Wife of Bath Journal Entry #1 Despite the complicated language, The Wife of Bath by Geoffrey Chaucer is a tale of women sovereignty over a male dominated culture. I am a man, and also the son of a strong woman, and I am aware of the troubles and misfortunes women encounter because of gender. The plot starts with the knight being overwhelmed by his own sense of power and lust, that he takes advantage of a young woman. The knight is rightfully accused and charged with rape and sentenced to death. Due to what I believe is curiosity and vengeance felt by the queen, she sentences him to seek the answer to a mysterious question that even myself has pondered over. The question is “ what do women desire the most?” This question, in my opinion, has no real answer, like the tale it varies from person to person, depending on the circumstance. The knight soon receives his answer but it also comes with some questionable consequences. Rape is something that is spoken of on television or in the news but it does not receive as much coverage as it should. The punishment for rape presently is not as nearly severe as the punishment the knight would have received if the queen had not intervened. The initial punishment set forth by the King is what should be granted for the rape of an innocent woman. I do not believe the Queen should have offered her suggestion of what the knight should have to endure for his crime, as it seems that she had her own agenda. After......

Sorrowful Woman

...Analysis Essay on “A Sorrowful Woman” Gail Godwin signifies that not all women want to be a full time wife and mother in her short story, “A Sorrowful Woman.” This idea of feminism helps the audience understand the poignant character and her actions. Gail Godwin incorporates this epigraph, “There once was a wife and mother one too many times.”(1st Sent.) This quote at the beginning of her short story implies that the woman should not have been a wife or mother. Her unhappiness in (Para. 1) is based on how she was so sad and it made her sick to see her husband and son. She did not want to be a wife or mother so she tried new things. “She tried these personalities on like costumes, then discarded them.”(Para. 20) This shows how she could not pin-point her true identity; therefore, she tried new personalities, but none of them worked. (Critical Analysis of “A Sorrowful Woman”) When she picked up the pen and pad and attempted to write a poem (Para. 20). She failed to succeed. Because she wanted to be free, all the freedom she did have seemed overwhelming. The sorrowful woman sought to be independent. She moved into her little room and slowly but surely disconnects from her son and husband by not seeing them anymore. (“Critical Analysis of “A Sorrowful Woman”) Because the sorrowful woman could not identify herself, her husband had to fulfill her roles. “I don’t know what to do, it’s all my fault, I’m such a burden.” (Para. 15) The husband, always understanding her feelings,......

Literature and Freedom

...a belief of the particular status whether on an individual level or not. Freedom presents an image of the beliefs of the society in defining what is wrong and right. Different communities have rules to which those who believe in them follow and this is diverse depending on culture. Literature is mutually related to freedom as the writer chooses the direction the story will head and the reader has the option of acceptance or denial about the theme in the story. The analysis is presented of two artists who have dwelled on the subject of freedom in their narration providing a clear understanding of the association between liberty and literature. The woman’s swimming pool is a story by Hanna Al-Shaykh, who portrays the conventional fights women face in Islamic-Arab countries. In the story, she plainly depicts the depleting pressure the young storyteller faces as she satisfies the objectives of going to the sea. The presentation of the narration is from a young woman side where accompanied by her grandmother embark on the journey to Beirut to make her fantasy on visiting the sea one day come true. The story denotes the contention of strict religious points of view and customary views, and the restrictions that a young woman faces when in between the traditions of two world. The young were raised believing in the Muslims tradition, and her views were restricted to the culture (Akbari 14).

I can say that every object in my plate, symbolizes me or my personality. The “Pink Shoe” and the “Pearl Bracelet” represents Fashion. I've always had a 'Passion For Fashion’. Ever since I was a little girl,  I have been reading fashion and beauty magazines. I was always wondering how women could bring out the best in themselves. In fashion, my biggest inspirations are definitely Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Gabrielle Chanel. They show the difference between a woman and a lady. In my free time I like to read fashion magazines, fashion and beauty blogs. I love to surf the internet to look up all sorts of fashion online shops. Not just to see what’s new, but to get inspired as well. Being involved into “fashion” is really a big thing for me. Because in that way i help myself increase my self-esteem. My interest in fashion started at a young age. I enjoyed spending my days alone playing with my Barbies. I repurposed their clothes with a stapler and tape and gave them haircuts to match their look. The “Green Ribbon” represents how girly I am. The “Red Nail Polish”. When I became a teenager, like I said, I love colors! and so I’ve been very addicted to nail polish. Its just I’m so plain, without them. And I really take good care of my nails. Also, believed in the saying “Nails Are Like Jewels, Don't Use Them Like Tools”. The......

The Femimine Mystique

...woman’s hero in her time because she was all about women having equality. She spent five years researching a book dealing with what she called the “problem with no name”. This excerpt gives a general view on how she felt as a woman who took a back seat to her own life to become the “American House Wife”. She discuss how women would try to make themselves believe that being the good wife was what you had to be and living behind the shadows of a man was acceptable. In this document Friedan wants people to know exactly what occurred during the feminist movement. How women's rights came to a reality, how women believed there was only one role to have which is a typical housewife that has a husband to overpower her. Not being able to vote, or have any rights as an equal to men. This means father not mother, children of both sexes needed to learn, recognize and respect the abilities and functions of each sex. No matter what, the men were in charge. Next, Friedan discussed how women where brought up believing when they grow up, they are to marry and have children. Going to college is what is a woman had to do, but graduating wasn’t required. Being well educated is shown to be unfeminine. Men didn't enjoy a woman knowing information they knew. Men wanted women uneducated, men were supposed to be the only one educated in the household. The role of women was to find a husband to support the family that they would raise.
