"Psychologists have discovered that while reading a book or story, people are prone to subconsciously adopt their behavior, thoughts, beliefs and internal responses." This is a study about exposure to different types of people that I want to use in the paper. It shows how they were exposed to all types of characters and after being exposed became more accepting of the type of person they were exposed to. They do tests with sexuality which proved to provide a tolerance or acceptance after reading. Also, they did the test with race which also showed the same results. Bringin proven psychology brings validation to the paper.
This article is a real account of someone relating to a character on tv and finding themselves. This is a like key point I want to make in my paper. That creating tv shows with different types of characters helps people to discover who they are and come to terms with themselves. It exposes people to concepts that they usually would not hear I their day to day life. It gives people an outlet to find peace with themselves like this person did with Buffy.
This article is an interview with the cast. The person who plays Kate talks about the stigma behind coming out and how the tv show can expose people to this. This gains more acceptance and can expose people questioning someone to relate to. She says as a society there is more room for us to grow to fully accepting everyone which is an idea I could present in the paper. It gives good topics and like inspiration to the paper.
This source agrees with me on the point of the show accurately showing single parenting. Even though no one show can show every aspect of the struggles of single parenting this article acknowledges that it shows it. I can use this source to back up my statements of the show representing single parenting. There are two single parents in the show that find solace in each other during the hard times of raising teens. They eventually form a romantic relationship but do keep the relationship with their kids first. This is super important to single parenting and will be in my argument.
"The Netflix show is worth seeing for breakout star Peyton Kennedy's portrayal of coming out while coming of age." I think that statement is funny because it is kinda like a play on words. IDK it's like something I could put in the introductory when I introduce the topic. Truly I just think it is funny and maybe something I could use. Or, I could like be inspired by it and do a similar play on words.
This is a really long paper but there is a certain section I read that I liked. It talks about women being under-represented in the media or how they are often inaccurately represented. The show also has a kick-ass African American single mother on the show who is very important in the way that the show never shows her as weak or needing a man. They accurately show the struggles of a single parent and don't make her seem perfect in anyway but they never show her as weak or needing to rely on someone or a man. The show also never makes a story about her being black and in the 90's, they treat her character and story development as if she was any plain and "normal" white character. The article highlights how for so long the media did a bad job at showing this.
In the show, one of the main characters is questioning her sexuality and the show has gotten great praise for its representation of discovering sexuality. The article talks about how LGBT norms are learned through the media. It says how a lot most of what people questioning or discovering themselves go to the media to discover it. Therefore showing the importance of shows like this "normalizing" things society still struggles to accept.
I like the way they address point the first sentences the main issue. It’s simple to read and makes valid points. I can use some of this writing to figure out my opening to my essay. I want to open with something that grips the reader but isn’t hard to understand.
This articles talks about importance of representation in the media. The show I'm analyzing got s lot of praise for doing that. It showed a bunch of different "types" of people that aren't usually broadcasted across mainstream media. It brings like actual physiological research into the article and how it affects people long term. Also brings up that like it isn't just unfair it's not right and like actually has consequences. Good for me because my topic is about how the show Everything sucks! Has good representation and is important for people to see.
This article is more a critical piece of the show. I like this one because I can look at the points they made and argue them in my paper for why it is important. Like they say it isn't important for it to be set in the 90's and that the show just wanted a nostalgic factor but I can argue that it has purpose. Also the article said that they just brought a cliche coming of age story to the 90's because it isn't a popular era for shows right now. This is also something I'm arguing is important but that's like the stuff I like. It's critical and not supporting everything but still says the show is important.
