This assignment will help you examine popular culture and movies to see how they shape our ideas about sexuality. Like television, films tend to depict sexual stereotypes and to adhere to mainstream sexual norms. Media educators Gross and Gerbner argue that the commercial structure of the mass media limits the opportunity for representing diverse characters. Too often networks and film companies shy away from portraying the multiple and diverse dimensions of sexuality for fear of alienating or offending advertisers, investors, and audiences
This assignment is to assess whether you are able to critically evaluate depictions of people’s sexual behaviors in feature films. Many motion pictures portray the diversity in human sexuality in inaccurate ways, leading to misunderstanding and heightened stigmatization of people who do not adhere to the mainstream sexual norms. Some movies, however, are lauded for dispelling stereotypes and providing accurate insight into human sexuality. Films, like any forms of media, have a powerful impact on how we view the sexuality of others and ourselves. Negative and or misinformed attitudes about sexuality leave people vulnerable to neglecting and understanding their own sexual needs and being judgmental of others. Providing accurate information can help correct fears, myths and misconceptions many people have about the diversity present in our society. Studies have shown that a combination of education and face-to-face interaction has a greater impact on changing attitudes than using either strategy in isolation.
