9.) Negative Portrayal in the Media (5%)
Tired of seeing dumb and deadbeat dads? Sick of every man on TV being a sex-obsessed womanizer? So are we. Men are often seen as incompetent, misogynistic, brutish slobs with few redeeming qualities. When there is a boys vs. girls competition in a children’s television show (when scripted), the girls always win and boys are treated like fools. When boys complain, they’re expected to “man up.” TV shows, commercials, and movies ought to portray men in a more positive light.
