In reading over the "Class Dismissed" article, it was clear to me that there were a few stereotypes being portrayed in these forms of media including class. My questions on these stereotypes are: Why do you think we portray these classes or genders the way we do? What started these stereotypes, and in our ever changing culture, why are they sticking? Who says that working and middle class families really do act the way they do on television, because there is a reoccurring theme among the way they're portrayed? And finally, the idea of women in certain roles as making progress comes up. Because the use of women in these roles of power is often used as satire, do we really think that women have progressed and are being viewed differently because they're showed in the media in these roles?
