Janet Chaftez is a theorist that discusses gender inequality. She realizes that patriarchy is here, but brings up the question of how gender inequality within that is stabilized and manifested. During our many rants in class, we got on the topic of misogyny and we defined it as a devaluing of women, which is exemplified in the common phrase, “you throw like a girl”. Misogyny can be seen in many different examples such as lyrics of music, reality television, and even in ways we try to train our boys to be men. In doing so, we teach them (boys) to be tougher, stronger, less emotional than girls, as if how girls are isn’t good enough. Another place you see misogyny is through video games, music videos and pornography which is being viewed at younger ages, so it is teaching children the value of women and how to degrade them in acts of sex. Misogyny is throughout our society and appears in many ways that you couldn’t even imagine. I think that it happens so much, our society as a whole is becoming desensitized to it and doesn’t even know when it is happening, or at least isn’t viewing it as the huge problem that it is.
